    So, if you use Amex plat. luggage service and the airlines loose your bag, they will give this money? They asked me if I wanted the service, and I declined. That definitely is a good deal. I'll have to call them and set it up.

    Thanks,

    I had my luggage put on another flight from Orlando to Los Angeles but was lucky that plane also came to LA. The best solution is use UPS. You can ship your luggage directly to the hotel for about $30. I shipped my suitcase the day before my flight (using overnight) and it was there in my hotel room the day I arrived. I didn't have to to be at the airport 2 hours early, pay luggage fees, wait at baggage claim in LAX or anything. Alot less stressful, no waiting, garenteed your stuff will be at your hotel, ect. Great if you are on a timed schedule. Would recommend this method to anyone!

    For flyer issues - check out flyertalk.com and see if there are any company reps in the forums. Most airlines have reps in the forums (and they're quite active), and they are usually VERY good at resolving issues personally. g'luck.

    whats everyones opinion on continental?
    I like Continental, but they have old planes. A lot of airlines use old planes still, but JetBlue and Virgin dont.

    I use Alaska Air mostly since the only place I really fly to is LA, but now Virgin flys there from Seatac.

    I've had good experiences with JetBlue and Virgin. American is ok, basic transportation, no frills, and charge for everything, but at least the flights are close to on time and they've never lost a bag of mine.

    Do a Google search on Braniff Stewardesses (an airline from the 60's) and see what airline travel USE to be like....BEFORE deregulation.
