• How important is priority boarding?

    Jun 28, 2019, 09:54 AM

    Priority boarding is very important for both domestic and international flights especially when travelling with hand luggage only to ensure you can secure overhead locker space close to your seat. Additionally, for international overnight flights I like to board early and get changed into pyjamas...

  • Wish there was a way to tie it up with QF. I have Hyatt Globalist and QF Plat just no AA membership. I do plenty of flying on AA just always link my QFF to the booking.

    They really need to do a 15" version minus the touch bar, no need for such a gimmick. I would prefer a tactile esc key (especially for those in IT that use vim) in lieu of the touch bar.

    AA recently opened a flagship lounge at ORD and I was impressed when I was there last week. OW Sapphire and higher will get you in. Much better selection of food and beverage (help yourself open bar including spirits). Not nearly as crowded as the regular Admirals club and a much better experience.

  • Like other people have mentioned make sure you have applied for your ESTA at least 72 hours before your flight. As for the transit time, 2.5 hours should be fine.

    From what I can tell without having status with United your options are limited. You can purchase a one day pass to the United club for $59 through the United app or at club locations which is fairly steep but if you are desperate that may be your only option.

    I too have found the SMS service very pleasant. This service has saved me a lot of time in lieu of waiting on hold for a voice agent. Also given the "offline" type of communication it is easier to perform a SMS interaction when you have a busy schedule as you can respond to messages when you are ...
