It's great to have your perspective as a pilot. Hower, I have to disagree. Yes, it's true. There will always occasionally be diversions on any scheduled flight for mechanical or weather related...

Has anyone tried holding a reservation by phone. Then, pulling up the reservation on co.com and trying to ticket from there. If possible, presumably that would preserve the 100% EQM's and save you...
