AA is doing the same. As others have mentioned, it's bad enough that you can't through check across alliance partners on seperate PNRs anymore. Not being able to do so on the same airline is too far.

It gets great reviews and this article refers to it as "6 star"I haven't stayed there as it doesn't count toward my Marriott elite qualifying n...

Can one earn Asia Miles and for instance status credits for QF or EQMs on AA while flying on CX? As an example, SQ allows you to earn PPS value toward that scheme while crediting miles to an account with another *A or partner airline. I know that's not an exact parrellel. Thanks

Agreed. The JAL version of this is great! Hope more airlines the don't want go 1-2-1 adopt this version of 2-3-2.

That pretty much sums up how we are in a preffesional setting. I would say outside of the finance and legal settings you'd be safe to skip the tie, but an American is very unlikely to to be bothered if a new business aquatence is overdressed . This should go witout saying to Australians who are ...

I've begun to put my wallet, passport, and watch (if I take it off) in a small satchel. It's slim enough to slide into the side wells where iPads/laptops go on many J seats, and can be slid discreetly into nooks and crannies when the seat is laid flat. I'll carry it to and from the toilet on the ...
