I do realize that I bought a Y fare too late, so technically I have no right to be angry............but I am.
You paid for Y, you got Y, so what is the problem here?
When you look at it, it's no big damn deal to sit me in business.
Yes, it would be, because you paid for a Y ticket.
Not many people were there and no paying pax would have noticed.
Oh, so its okey to steal (which in effect it would be, getting something which you did not pay for in the first place) if noone notices, or there are lots of said item lying around?
I am a fellow airline employee, does that count?
Um, how about NO? You were not flying on your employer's a/c. You were already using your airline employee benefit by being able to buy a one way ticket from NRT to LAX for $155. So by the ID90 rules, that ticket has a retail price of over $1550. Getting to ride trans-Pacific for $1400 less than someone who bought a ticket on the same fare rule for you isn't enough?
Make a long story short, the f/a's were really attentive and professional. They smiled and the ladies were hot. Good stuff. The food was good too and my rice/pork dinner was awesome for coach.
Sounds like you had a great flight back to the States to me!
As for ID-90's in Asia, they all suck
Then pay full fare like the rest of us, then!
Excuse me, but what does God need with a starship?
