It also appears that the Route Map under Where We Fly has changed from the fltmaps version to some new version. The Wayback Machine doesn't seem to have a...

Actually now that I think about it, we should probably note that Alaska is on the list of airlines that do not provide early boarding for their credit cardmembers. They join Frontier, JetBlue, and...

It's because you're only allowed to bring a personal item, and not a second "full-size" carry on. And they don't want the GAs to have to police this at boarding time, so they make you visit a...

I extrapolated "unless you live in SEA, the network is not one of them" to imply that the connection options from non-SEA airports are not good. But true, you did not explicitly say that.

I have been absolutely delighted by the 30 non-seasonal destinations AS has from SAN. I wouldn't be so quick to say anything to the effect of "only SEA has good destinations".

As usual, we need to know the airport and the travel profile. AS can be a very good alternative for a lot of CA airports, if we know where you're coming from and going to.

If we take the OP...

When you say you "booked 3 U spaces", do you mean with GGUs?
SNA-SFO is its own game, but I highly doubt you'll be able to SDC or otherwise change to an SFO-EWR flights with 3 U spaces at any time,...

It sounds like for less than the Economy upcharge for a single ticket (or similarly, the cost of your no-lap-child preference), you can Basic-ally have your cake and eat it too. Not having kids of my...

Wow, color me intrigued. That's totally bookable.

It's weird, too, because the flights in cash are showing additive pricing of the two segments. It's certainly amusing to choose the 5k miles and...

BRW-LAX is southbound.
LAX-PDX is northbound.
You're backtracking, and you can't do that. That's an open-jaw roundtrip. HNL and JFK work because they're east/west and LAX is a logical stopover...

Everything that involves an AA codeshare is weird with fare classes, and as mentioned AS does not fly that route.
For example, the same flight, AA6062/AS4770 SAN-LAX on 28Jun:

Might not be. I cleared in May as an MVPG, but as a solo traveler and within T-24. And both F and Y ended up being full. Is there a better way to tell than buying a Y fare and waiting until the UG...

Availability today finally showed U2 for my flight in exactly 7 days, SAN-EWR. I booked it at the beginning of the year and it was always U0, which I guess makes sense for a Friday transcon.
