    Rumor of Possible LGA Flight Reductions

    Okay. We all know the PIT horse is dead as far as the little boys in the sand box are concerned, and that's pretty much been accepted by the front line agents. They have whittled it down to 50 flights per day with the majority of them operated by Repugnant and Air Whiskey. There is a nasty...

    Non-refundable Ticket Restrictions

    So does anyone know when this company is going to wake up and pull back the "use it or lose it" customer unfriendly ticket policy? I'm sure UA, AA, DL, NW, and FL are enjoying the revenue we're leaving on the table because our DM Preferred travelers are flying on them instead of us. Whoever is...
