From FlyerTalk to Twitter, it seems everyone is a buzz with speculation and guessing of what will happen next. On Twitter I saw Gary “View from the Wing”  tweet about the MilePoint thread that has some fun updates worth looking at.

As for me, I am United outbound but Asiana on the return. So, I wanted to see about getting my 1st class seats picked. I went to the Asiana website and did just that.

And, a bit later, the updated seats are now showing up in my United confirmation page. Who knows what will happen in the end but it is starting, a little, to look like we may just get to fly. Time will tell and this all feels a bit like “brain freeze”, you know, when you eat a slushy too fast, you want more, but too much and FREEZE! 🙂  (UPDATE: see the comment from reader Charlie – UA Insider has dropped the hammer! So I put up a new poll about it!)

Lastly, I am very pleased with my latest churn results and being able to show the impact of churning on your credit score over about 2 years from the other day.  Chase seems to be shutting them down as there are NO live wild 50,000 SW Air ones anymore (Edit – and as if on cue, the SW Air 50 card is back – HT Mommy Points). So, on the fence, you may miss out! – René
