Fare of the Day: Washington DC to Paris $752 RT including all taxes, in business class

Posted by Tracy Stewart on Thursday, September 29, 2011

Fly from DC Dulles to Paris Orly for $752 round-trip, nonstop, including all taxes on OpenSkies, which -in case you didn't know- is the all business class offshoot of British Airways. This is about as low as what other carriers are charging to fly this route in economy, so a seat in biz class at $752 is really something.

This fare is valid for travel Monday through Thursday, on select dates in October.

For booking info, see our fare details.

United Airlines policy on "too large to fly" passengers? It's in their contract

Is this new or has it always been there and we just didn't see it?

In United Airlines' Contract of Carriage, we found this language under the "refusal to transport" section (meaning they won't let you fly if....)

REFUSAL TO TRANSPORT UA RULE: 0035

....

UNABLE TO FIT INTO A SINGLE SEAT IN THE TICKETED CABIN;
-UNABLE TO PROPERLY BUCKLE THE SEATBELT USING A SINGLE
SEATBELT EXTENDER; AND/OR
-UNABLE TO PUT THE SEAT’S ARMRESTS DOWN WHEN SEATED

So in other words, if you're too big to fit in a single seat, and you refuse to upgrade to a roomier business or first class seat (assuming one is available), then they won't let you fly.

You can also be refused if you're barefoot or have a "malodorous condition"--but nothing yet about whether you're giving someone a smooch.

Fare of the Day: San Francisco to Rome $715 RT including all taxes

Posted by Tracy Stewart on Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Fly from San Francisco to Rome for $715 round-trip, including all taxes, on US Airways.

This fare is valid for travel on just a few dates in October and November. Found via Travelocity's flexible search (look for the $410 base fare). Also bookable on Orbitz, though this lower fare is "hidden" behind higher fares, so it requires a little clicking around. You might find it easier to just go with the flexible search on Travelocity.

Booking info in our fare details.

Buy American, get rewarded

Posted by George Hobica on Monday, September 26, 2011

The other day I was shopping for a new belt, and went into my local Coach store. To my dismay, I discovered that all their belts are now made in China. Considering the awful balance of trade deficit that the US and other countries have with China, not to mention their dubious record on human rights and pollution, or the unemployment situation in this country, I went searching for something made in the US. And voila, I found that Allen Edmonds offers some really great USA manufactured belts (not to mention shoes of course) for the same prices as those made-in-China belts. And then I decided that I should be rewarded some bonus frequent flyer miles for my effort, so rather than buying the belt at Allen Edmonds' website, I searched on United's shopping mall and saw that Nordstrom is selling the same wares (actually better looking stuff than what Coach had) for the same price as Allen Edmonds' website, but Nordstrom is offering 4 United bonus miles for each dollar I spend with them. So my $98 belt earned me almost 500 miles on United (since I used my United MileagePlus credit card to purchase). But the biggest reward was knowing that I was helping keep someone employed in the US, if only a little bit.
