Paying even a $1 premium over whatever fare you paid so that youre getting a better KSML is a fool's errand. Why would that ever matter. No KSML is worth paying up for, ever.

So basically make someone crazy and take up 5 lbs in their suitcase so that you can get something for 10 bucks cheaper.... good luck with that

Airlines that don't let you look up your itinerary with the eticket number >:(
Airlines that don't show the partner confirmation numbers (or let you pull it up with the partners) and make you call >:(

Is English their first language, or do they speak regular english?
