So my family's flight home from San Diego (to ORD) for pesach got "changed." But it wasn't really changed, they cancelled the flight and re-booked us on alternative flights. Problem is my wife and I (and our kids) were on 2 separate itineraries (used points from each account). So now they re-booked us on 2 different flights - both of which are worse (one 7 hours earlier, and one around the same time but now with a stopover).

My question is - Do I have any recourse? Firstly I'm upset that flight was "changed" so close to the actual departure date (April 28) also that they put my wife on a stopover flight even though original ticket was nonstop. They did say they have nonstop availability the next day. Would they have to pay for a hotel?

It seems there is not much I can do. Just wanted to know if anyone has any tips. Thanks!

Looking for a recommendation for a broker who can get cheap (relatively obviously:)) first class tickets to Israel. Been using a guy for a while, but i feel he's gotten lazy and the deals are not so great.

Let me know. Thanks!

Is it worth it? Thoughts?

Up In The Air / Southwest Companion Pass changes now instant
« on: April 29, 2014, 11:33:04 AM »
Not sure if this was posted anywhere, but I just called to change my companion and they did it over the phone instantly!

You used to have to do it by mail and send back in the companion pass card and wait for a new one. I guess they realized that no one ever asks for the card anyway.

So now it's so much easier to make changes. Still can change up to 3 times.


Up In The Air / Best First Class to Israel
« on: March 20, 2014, 11:32:44 AM »
Assuming money/points is no object, what is the best first/business class available to Israel?

Just tried to order a car seat on Amazon and wanted it shipped next day. As a Prime member, i was expecting the normal 4 dollar charge. But it showed up as 16. An Amazon rep stated "We recently changed the price of One-Day Shipping and Saturday Delivery for Amazon Prime members.Pricing now varies based on the item's size and weight."

More info here:

For me, this is a HUGE devaluation of Prime membership.

Bought this for $1800 less than a year ago. Going to sell on Ebay but figured i'd try here first. Everything works great. only issue is the battery holder compartment on the bottom is slightly chipped so the battery sometimes comes loose. I was too lazy to fix and just put some tape on it. Everything else is perfect.

Up In The Air / Random Gold Status?
« on: September 01, 2011, 09:21:20 PM »
This is weird. I just had a HORRIBLE experience flying American Airlines from STL to ORD. Major delays, no air conditioning, etc.

They immediately sent an email in the morning apologizing and giving me 5k aa miles. I then sent an e-mail complaining and they responded with an additional 5k.

when i logged in to check if the miles posted, i noticed i was listed as gold status. which i'm not. or at least, i wasn't.

it still lists the number of miles and points i need to reach gold status, but it lists me at the top as gold. i even went to check reward tickets and all of the preferred seating (exit rows, etc.) were available to me.

is this a glitch? do you think they upgraded me as a courtesy? how long will it last?

this is awesome!

Up In The Air / Chicago to Florida airfare help..
« on: November 25, 2009, 09:55:16 AM »
I'm looking to book a flight from ord to mia from dec 20 early morning, returning dec 22 early evening. 4 passengers (2 adults, 2 children - age 3 and 5)

so far i've found that AA has the flights i want but the cost is over 3 grand!!! insane...

i have enough starwood points to use miles for AA but it says the transfer can take 2-4 weeks and it may not be enough time. (plus AA says if you don't book within 21 days they charge 50-100 per ticket)

what do i do?

Anyone remember those 25 dollar amazon gift cards from the hp website Dan posted?

Did anyone actually receive those?

if you look at the page now there's a disclaimer saying if you got to this page from a "freebie" website, you will not receive the gift card...
