I’ve heard if you switch status programs they send security to your house, smash your head against an armrest, then drag you out the door. Then they take your suitcase from under your bed and gate check it to Kyrgyzstan Not sure if it’s true but don’t want to take the risk.

Because Newark is an United hub

IBM, I used to fly out of Newark (United), and the flight attendants seemed unhappy and weren’t especially nice to us. Who needs that? Now, I’m Diamond on Delta, and loving it. Just a nicer atmosphere of crew and, many passengers

UA cancelled my entire flight. No replacement. Just...cancelled. c**ts

Because Star Alliance is hands down the best airline alliance globally. Sincerely, Your friendly/slightly smug United Global Services flyer ☺️
