AT, I tend to agree with you but I remembered that even though the Plat Reserve card is free, you get a $400 travel credit with it. So even though I may not use it after the change I will still keep it just for the travel credit.

I'm due to fly from LHR on EY on Oct 16. Based on this article I guess the new arrangement will be in place by then.Thankfully I have Priority Pass so I can use the Skyteam lounge or the Plaza Premium Lounge instead.

It's a great step forward but what about the case where if you're departing say SYD on a business class flight and want to be able to get an express pass for immigration/security, wouldn't you still need to go to the check-in counter for this?

I flew back into Sydney this morning on VA2. I think the problem with the delays to VA2's departure out of LAX is due to gate assignments.In the past when I've caught VA2 from LAX, it was using a regular gate off the main terminal. On my flight last nite the flight was leaving from Gate 142 which...

Well my fears about the delay with my VA1 flight to LAX yesterday came to fruition.The VA2 flight was late getting in causing the VA1 departure to be slipped by just over 90 minutes meaning that I was unlikely to make my connection to JFK. Needless to say I scrambled to protect myself by having V...

Just checked today's VA1 departure. Was scheduled for 9.30am, actual departure was 10.40am resulting in a scheduled late arrival into LAX at 648am. Makes for a stressful connection time out of LAX!
