Brit Morin lost her wedding/engagement ring on a United flight last week on United flight 1908 from Newark to Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
The ring was found. And more importantly it wasn’t kept and pawned or auctioned off on eBay, it was given to a pilot headed for San Francisco so that they could return the rings to Brit.
American Airlines and Los Angeles television station KTLA are running a giveaway. It’s a trip to New York ‘like an A-Lister’ and my first thought was they’re encouraging Southwest Rapid Rewards status challenges.
The contest reveals the airline’s view of the devaluation of AAdvantage.
Virgin America offers padded leather recliner chairs in first class with foot rests and 55 inches seat back to seat back. That’s incredibly generous for most domestic routes. American is shrinking their first class from a ‘generous’ 38 inches for their new domestic standard product.
However it’s not competitive on premium cross country routes where American, Delta, United, and jetBlue all offer flat beds in business class.
The biggest aviation market in the world – by far – is the U.S., based on the number of departing seats. So this isn’t just domestic flights, it’s domestic flights plus outbound international flights as well. Here are the top 10.

Over the weekend I wrote that while the Platinum Card by American Express has a standard offer currently of 60,000 points after $5,000 in purchases within 3 months, some people can do even better than that — 100,000 points through the CreditCards.com CardMatch tool.
There is some confusion over how to find it however.
I think we may have just found the worst airline passenger ever who is going about her business oblivious to the concerns of others in the cabin. Every day passengers prop their bare feet up on the bulkhead. That’s bad enough. But it’s nothing in comparison.
This woman decided to dry her underwear using the airplane vent above her seat. She really gets ’em up in there, too. Now I know why some airlines don’t offer individual air vents.
Frequent flyer programs are really two separate and distinct efforts under the same banner: recognition and reward. Reward is mileage earning and redemption. Recognition consists of the (elite) benefits offered.
In the U.S. airline programs are generous by world standards in offering unsold domestic premium cabin seats as upgrades. However they aren’t as generous with service-oriented benefits.
Last year flight attendant in my Facebook feed shared a story about a man taking such a long time in the lavatory that another passenger expressed concern and eventually the crew started to suspect a medical emergency. After much knocking he came out, iPad in hand. He went in there to watch a movie. No, they didn’t confirm what kind of movie.
But what happens when the passenger comes out of the lavatory, but leaves their device inside?
