I'm planning out my travel for the year, and now that Brisbane is scratched, I'm barely going to hit Alaska MVP Gold. And if I buy the annual lounge pass, even with the signup bonus discount, it will work out to about $35 per visit.
It was 11am at the Fort Lauderdale airport, an hour after my non-stop flight to Portland was supposed to have boarded. As I had been watching our estimated departure get pushed back in 15 minute increments, I finally received the dreaded news over the loudspeaker - the flight was cancelled entirely. As hordes of people started lining up to rebook their flights with the gate agent, I found a quiet spot in the corner and opened up my laptop to look at my options.
welp, managed to go a whole year without a major airline snafu until my last work trip of the year. Flight from Miami to Portland was cancelled, and all the other options from Miami were bad. So I'm taking the Brightline train to Orlando and getting on a direct flight to Portland tonight!
How do not one, but two people, get a first class upgrade on a flight sitting in seat 1C/1B and not know they got upgraded and walk all the way to the back of the plane looking for their seat and then have to ask a flight attendant where seat 1C is??
Ugh, I am sorry for the mess! It sounds like this would be sorted out best by our experts on our reservations team. You can reach them at 800-252-7522 or by texting 82008.
Thanks, but I think there's literally nothing anyone can do. I can't even get my boarding pass from SEA-LHR until the American gate agents arrive at the gate. At least the British Airways lounge was able to find my ticket by looking up my seat number.
I need to figure out what shenanigans @TripActions pulled with my itinerary that caused the security check to reject my ID, and the @AlaskaAir lounge agent to have an extremely confused look on her face after scanning my boarding pass.
