The last part was a bit facetious... It was a weird feeling knowing I had the power to close down the whole terminal for re-screening. This is the knife I found in my carry-on.

Doesn't look like a 4" folding knife.....how long is the actual knife blade?

I can provide exact measurements for you if you'd like. However, it will have to wait until I get a chance to measure the exact length of the actual blade.

I have one of those Brookstone small multi-tools....if it's the mini one, it could have been confused with a nail clipper in the x-ray.  Regardless, nobody is taking down a plane with a multi-tool that doesn't even have a locking blade.  The much larger knives (though less sharp) in the first class meals on the plane are far more dangerous...and those don't seem to pose a problem.

Anyway, let's shift this forum back OT :)

It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

Yes its an old thread, but seems on topic...

It seems Economy comfort is still around on the 777-300's.
I have a ticket on hold using 60K UA miles/pp one way. I put it on hold on UA who called it business class while it seems to only be premium economy...

Any thoughts on such a use of miles? Trying to get 4 of us to TLV chol hamoed sukkos where (naturally) im finding very little availability.

Why do you think it's Comfort Class? AFAIK CC cannot be booked with UA miles

The email from UA says it's business class - "I" class. When I called turkish regarding seats they said I couldn't choose seats yet but that it is premium economy. Should I just assume it was a case of "no speaka d'inlis"?

You have to call the travel agent who booked the ticket for you, and pay the difference in fare + a change fee (possibly)
