    few points, which program forward?

    Hi all, A quick hopefully not too pressing question. Long time United MP, but my points are down to basically a US domestic trip now and due to expire in a few months. Also with Velocity, but again irregular flyer and due to self paying, my rare o/s flights earn limited points. So much of a...

    I put in an application to work for VA

    Hi everyone, It's not super frequent flyer related but I just thought I would mention that I recently put in an expression of interest as a Part Time Guest Service Agent, based in Sydney. I've done a couple of things over the years and at a bit of a crossroads phase of life. I love my people...

    flying to US - who or who

    Hi everyone, I have been pondering this and can't quite decide, so thought I would ask my more informed colleagues (that is you). So, I go to the US not frequently at different times, paying for myself and don't have the money for anything fancy. I am considering going again over their coming...

"Yet Sir Richard said that he expected at least one of the four airlines - United - to pull out within the next two to three years.
