why swiss over ba???    i flew swiss' famous "slip right off the seat" angled flat business seat and it was as uncomfortable as it gets for sleeping.     

Never actually flew swiss but that is what it sounded from the reviews. My bad :( thanks for pointing it out.

Why LH over BA?

I personally enjoyed LH business (on it's 346) more the BA's business product (744) which was pretty cramped if you asked me.

Anyone know about the european airlines?




I haven't flown all of them but based on what I've read here is how I would rank them.


Can't help you with the others though.

there are some reviews here:

Darn! I just canceled my united visa signature!!

I've applied for and received 2 SPG Business cards simultaneously.  No problem with the bonuses either.

Dan, are you saying that SPG Business cards are churn-able?

Credit Cards / Re: 50K Sapphire Preferred Bonus!
« on: June 07, 2011, 10:48:20 AM »
I applied  BA card a few weeks ago, but never heard anything from them. So I applied for the Chase Sapphire last week. I called recon yesterday and found out that they were both declined because I have the CO and UA cards open. I have good credit but they said there is nothing I can do. I was  too lazy to argue at the time.

Is it worth it to call back and ask to combine my UA and CO cards in order to get approved? Any other strategies I can try?


On The Road / Amex pay with points for travel (with 20% plat bonus)
« on: June 03, 2011, 10:47:47 AM »
Hey there,

I'm an avid reader of this forum and but I can't seem to find an answer to this question on previous threads.

I'm trying to book a hotel which is not associated with any awards program using amex travel "pay with points". Being that I'm a platinum member I get 20% of the points back.

However it costs 154,000 points for an $1000 reservation.  Even with the bonus, this seems to be a really bad use of Amex MR Points. 1 amex point comes out to less then 1 cent...

In general is "Pay with Points" for travel considered a good use of Amex points?


Credit Cards / Re: Too many bank inquiries

I have CO Chase Plus card opened and I got a mail offer to open another one (the same card that I had already). Being that I'm doing well in their Mile-a-Thon, I decided to apply.

I get a letter today saying that they noticed that I already have a card open with Continental and that I should call them to clarify why I need another.

Has this ever happened to you? Should I have canceled the first one before I applied?
