  1. @ Gary — Any word on whether Accor will grant LT top status to LT Fairmont Plats? If not, I will be requesting a refund for my LT Fairmont Plat package. If that is not refunded, I will file small claims in SF against the hotel and whoever it was that sold the package to me.

  2. @ Gary — I am going to guess that they will do something for us LT Plats, maybe access to Fairmont Gold lounges and one suite upgrade per year. After all, it’s only about 90 people, and these benefits would drive revenue to them. We’ll see.

  3. Since Dallas is only a co-owner of DFW they can maybe sell their interest in DFW but not all of it.

    The US Government could retire the national debt if they sold off all assets but it will never happen.

    This is such a stupid report.

  4. Maybe Dallas could sell DFW to Fort Worth and they could change the name to Fort Worth Airport. That way people who live in Fort Worth would have more reason to be offended when folks say they are flying to “Dallas”

    Either that or sell it to AA and rename it DFWAA or DAAFW or….
