  1. Re: Delta upgrade offer, Seattle to Spokane. This is why elites no longer get upgrades. Delta is selling upgrades to non-elites who don’t know any better. Yes, anyone who pays 45,000 miles to upgrade Seattle-Spokane is a fool but at the same time I’ve seen Delta’s buy-up offer promising a dedicated flight attendant, drinks, meals, etc. on CRJ-200s — a plane without a first-class cabin. It’s completely false advertising. I honestly can’t believe someone hasn’t sued who bought an upgrade and then didn’t get what Delta marketed. Where are the state attorney generals?

  2. Did American Airlines use FAA-approved Speedtape to repair their defective tray table, which could hinder an emergency exit during an aircraft evacuation?

  3. > Delta wants 45,000 miles to upgrade the 224 mile Seattle – Spokane Embraer E-175 regional jet flight.

    But it is better than 1 cent per mile. Value!

  4. Again, proof that it’s mostly moral, conservative women who are the beautiful ones…. inside and out.
