What’s The Deal With Delta’s Partner Lounge Access?

Okay, deep breaths, Delta flyers. Between the frantic two-day Delta One award sale to Europe, the changes to Sky Club policies, and the new monthly SkyMiles statement email (which totally doesn't merit a blog post but is kind of fun, I guess?), we've…

Official: China Southern Leaving SkyTeam

There have been rumors of China Southern leaving SkyTeam and joining oneworld for years. In ways this is logical, as oneworld doesn’t have an airline based in mainland China, while China Southern has second-rate status in SkyTeam, given Delta’s close…

A Sneak Peek At Salt Lake’s New Airport

As a Californian and a loyal Delta Medallion, I'm currently gritting my teeth through a reconstruction of Delta's terminals 2 and 3 that leaves travelers on the short end of the stick until at least 2023. In the meantime, the New York Times has an interesting…

SkyTeam Makes It Easier To Request Missing Miles

There are three major global alliances -- Star Alliance, SkyTeam, and oneworld. In general I'd say that Star Alliance has the best collection of airlines, while oneworld has the most valuable reciprocal elite perks. Meanwhile SkyTeam is sort of just…

Flying Delta Today? Here’s What The Outage Means For You

Delta flights were grounded this morning after a computer outage brought the airline systems to a halt. Flights are resuming, but given that Delta was only able to operate ~800 of their 6,000 scheduled flights this morning, things are a bit messy. A…

Review: Aeromexico 787 Business Class Tijuana to Mexico City

As the Aeromexico lounge was so depressing, we decided to head to the gate early. Which was a good decision, because holy cow the gate area was a cluster. Let's zoom in on the Sky Priority queue... Before we get into details, keep in mind that this was…

Review: Aeromexico Salon Premier Tijuana

The Aeromexico Salon Premier Tijuana is quite possibly the worst lounge ever to be reviewed on One Mile at a Time. Now, there’s some tough competition for this title, but I’m feeling pretty confident. The Priority Pass lounge in Catania, Sicily is pretty…

This Saudia First Class Fare Is Tempting Me…

"Saudia first class" and "tempting" are probably phrases which don't typically go in the same sentence. As you guys know, I'm trying to review as many new airline products as possible, even ones which might not be so great. This year I've done a good…
