Thank you Dan for not writing blog posts in which you basically say nothing of value.

Inspiration for my comment. To sum up: Let's talk about SQ waitlisting. Wait, I actually have nothing to say since there's nothing predictable about it.

Just want to thank Dan for teaching me how to escape the frigid weather in NY for a couple of days and book a last minute ticket to LA in F for under 60k AA round trip.

Cash price- $6771.00

Thanks Dan!

ETA- they never debited the miles for the return so F there and J back = 29,250 AA RT!

Not for a specific deal, but thanks to what i've picked up here, i was able to get rebooked on another airline after flight was cancelled despite being told that it could not be done because...
...its weather related
...its a mileage ticket
...all flights to XXX have been cancelled
...the flight you want on United has been cancelled

The key was knowing what the agents are really empowered to do. In this case the gate agent was clueless or unhelpful, but the group ticketing phone agent was very helpful.

Maybe I'm getting too old for DDF, but it seems that in the past 6 months, theres been too much garbage outside of JS. Of course, there will be some off topic comnents spread throughout, but it was getting so full of garbage that most posts (at least thats what it seemed) were devoid of any useful content. You had to read through back and forth banter to get anywhere.
Lets restore DDF to a useful and helpful community that it is and that we want it to be.

And thanks Dan for helping out.

Amen
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
