Taking off now, all's well that ends well!

Would have been interesting to see what UA GS with an event to catch+UA connection saver would have done in IAD. But the world will never know.

Until next time!
You would've made it IMO.

Whichever card he booked the trip on will be paying for his tickets.
Don't think they cover that.

New tool by United that helps people with delayed connections make their next flight. Available in certain airports for now.

Well no CLE players in the semis so maybe not worth the trip...

Ok vladdy gives you something to look forward to. Alonzo is toast.

Eta - Alonzo had a softer bracket. Wow. Unbelievable.

If Dan makes it Pete Alonoso wins, if he misses it Carlos Santana wins......

Vlad/pederson was worth the price of admission!

Also, if I didn't go, I'd have booked this (now brutal red-eye) flight home:

Why did every SoFl flight to CLE get delayed?

The entire board was red. Airports were briefly closed due to bad weather in SoFlo.

AF LYS-CDG-JFK business (787-9).

Or

EK MXP-JFK business.

EK comes out approx. $200 cheaper,

Which one is the better product? what do you guys think I should do?

Tnx!

Tough call, I think AF is the better product but you're adding an unnecessary connection.

Also leaning towards AF.

Much smaller business cabin.

Reverse herringbone seating.

Awesome lounge at CDG.

Eh, I've always been of the impression that EK J isn't that special of a product, even in 1-2-1.

Should I be concerned to but a flight arriving in SIN 10am Friday morning?
