Got a united reservation that just refuses to be changed online. Comes up with a 'call united' when any changes are attempted to be made, and I can't find a rep competent enough to do the change I want or to tell me what's causing the reservation to error out. Anyone has tips on when or where to call them to get someone mildly competent?

Is there a way to book mixed cabin flights on Singapore.com? It doesn’t show nyc-tlv F because the second leg doesn’t offer F.

If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

If I have a planned trip TLV-NYC-TLV does it make sense to purchase lifemiles now so I can fly in J? Also what is SQ like?
(I was thinking of this because of this: https://onemileatatime.com/lifemiles-offering-up-to-125-bonus-on-purchased-miles/)
