Ground stop currently in effect for all UA domestic operations.
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.

I have a Avios award travel voucher. Book any award on BA metal and get second free but must pay fees. Does this have a resale value?

You can now book flights directly on Google Flights! Spirit, for what it's worth, at least.

Lufthansa has had this with Google for quite some time already.

"which increases the width of the aisle from the usual 20 inches to 42"

Thanks! What are my best options to use. Does BA have any flights that don't fly in/out of England?

SIN-SYD
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Major problem I see is the additional moving parts. Will always lead to breaking and more maintenance, which I don't see the airlines wanting to deal with
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Some Caribbean island hoppers. Nothing exciting. SIN-SYD would be a bad redemption in BA "F" anyways. SQ F A380 for 40k UA would be a MUCH better redemption IMO, even with a free companion on BA.

Every second the plane is delayed it costs them money. This will be saving them money.

Perhaps this has been answered somewhere else but random travel question:

If I book a flight from DC to Stockholm with a stopover in in Paris can I then book a flight from Paris to Tel Aviv and just skip the 2nd leg of the trip to Stockholm?  Will I be able to get my luggage in Paris or will it go straight through to Stockholm?
What about on the way back?  Can I book the same itinerary and get on the flight from Paris to DC without having been on the Stockholm to Paris flight?
