Minneapolis wasn't one of the locations where they allowed you to take car into Canada. Arrived to pick up car and found that it was booked with Dollar but they were out of cars and...

    Checking luggage through LAX with 16 hour connection

    Was in this situation last year. Only had an 8 hr wait which turned into 10 as they tried to bribe overbooked passengers to travel the next day. When you get to LAX go through customs and head towards the required terminal. You should be able to walk it and the weather should be good...

    Qantas American Express Premium Card - month of Qantas points lost if cancelled?

    Ring them up and tell them you are going to cancel. I am sure they will offer you another year fee free. There is a lot of pressure not to lose customers.

    Tiger perpetually Late ,VERY unhappy- $50 cab fares

    All care no responsibility. How dare you be 1 minute late - they can be hours late or cancel the plane and in both examples they have no responsibility or care.

    Anybody get waiver of annual fee for third year on AMEX?

    Rang Amex today to cancel my card. Last year I was offered $100 to remain with Amex. I declined, cancelled the card and signed up for a new card. This year I said I wished to cancel - I was asked why and replied that the fee was excessive and I couldn't use the card everywhere due to...

    Jetstar - Always Late?

    Jetstar has lead the field in demanding that passengers check in half an hour before the scheduled flight. There should be similar penalties in place for when Jetsar is unable to have the plane leave on time or arrive on time.
