AA Website Pricing errors & More

Airline websites are a distance from being glitch proof and we know that the Legacy carriers’ outdated technology and behind the time IT teams are far from perfect. It seems like most US airlines from United (especially since the co merger) to Delta website are incompetent, especially when it ...

KAL / Skyteam Lounge TBIT LAX

Since the recent grand reopening of the new Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) in LAX, I have not had the pleasure to use any of the new lounges.

The Silver Lining: Calling Delta means long wait times

I must admit, I HATE calling the airlines, in fact, I hate talking on the phone in general.
