    I’m somewhat surprised that DEN-HNL is now a BusinessFirst market, but ORD-HNL is still a UDU market.. Any thoughts on that?

    I suppose I’m more surprised that they didn’t put the premium aircraft on ORD-HNL, while keeping the domestic product on DEN-HNL. If it was on ORD-HNL, I would think that they could pick up premium pax coming from Europe.

    while not happy with the lower RDM bonus for Golds and Plats, it’s completely understandable. Also, Plats lost the M-up.

    Also on board with the 4 paid flights/year – no different than BA.

    But quite peeved at Silvers getting completely shafted. While I’ve made Gold for next year, I likely will not repeat the following year. I’m a student, and all the travel is on my own dime. I rely on both bags, and that’s a major loss. As for loss of E+ until booking, that is very annoying, because even though other airlines don’t have E+, I can at least choose to sit in the front. Now, I’m stuck in the back of the plane until OLCI, and good chance there will be no E+ on many of my flights by the time OLCI opens. I’d rather get the bag and E+ back, and lose carpet boarding or elite check-in.
