Depending on the airline, Twitter can be very useful in these circumstances - responses are often much quicker than those of call centres, and can be deployed when waiting in an airport queue, if necessary.
Mar 11, 2019, 03.28 PM / Five tips for handling delayed domestic and international flights
This lounge is serviceable, but nothing more. The shower facilities are its best feature, and have been surprisingly readily available in my experience, despite the crowds elsewhere. The food is acceptable, but the booze is decidedly pedestrian. Investing a bit more in this lounge would enhance A...

Yes, agree entirely. Despite the woeful exchange rate, cash remains the best option for most domestic F flights in the US - prices are far less than J in Australia, and the SC earn on AA can often be quite lucrative.

Agreed - such a painful start to each flight - but at least AirNZ had the good sense to pull it early. Would be nice if Qantas extended us the same courtesy . . .
