I've never heard of a bundle with club access before - but something along those lines sounds like a smart move for the time being.


I have seen it offered, not often by itself though. Usually club access and a free bag or something. or club access and priority boarding. I agree, might as well try to sell club access while the amount of travelers is low.


Correct, normally offered with a buy up to Economy Plus or free bag. Was looking to book tickets in July to Cabo, E+ and Club Access offered for $119.00 per person. I would imagine Clubs are pretty empty right now..

Sun Country for a cares act exemption at STL. So that means they won’t be running routes for awhile. Not sure what it means long term. PDX was one also so not surprising we got one since that was our summer route.

G4 got one for SPI
DL for Peoria.

Some other cool airport options as well. I have no financial connection with the site, just thought I would share.

And yes, I ordered one.


Whoa doggie those Ts are expensive. Maybe you don't have a financial connection to the site yet, but . . . they ought to give you commissions.

And yes, I also ordered one.

In other news I had the strangest dream last night of hopping a war weary 747 from St. Louis to Chicago on a whim with a deceased friend of mine. Cold, snowy, late winter still clinging to the bones of plague. (So, early in the week, basically.) Covid not truly over yet, so flights cheap and largely empty. I think the airport was an odd mix of Midway and La Guardia. Some nice vintage '80s grime. Somehow we forgot to get off. (I was looking for something I'd mislaid.) Found out we were taxiing elsewhere and I was "Crap, I still have to clear customs!" . . . (Somewhere between half and two thirds of my lifetime flight legs have ended in passport control.) And then I realized Chicago is, in fact, still in the same country as St. Louis. Purely domestic. How novel! No big deal. Maybe more walking from the other gate. Was basically a darn good dream.

Yeah, $30 was a little steep, but Cranky IS trying keep his business afloat without layoffs, so he's come up with a few interesting ways to generate cash. And being a big fan of his site, was glad to help in a small way.

Interesting dream, but for a season or two TWA did in fact operate STL-ORD-LHR on the 747 before they sold the LHR authorities to AA. Maybe your subconscious was taking you back to another time, hope you enjoyed your free vacation!

^I think weird dreams are almost the norm these days. STL-ORD-LHR actually almost makes sense. Might as well originate at the big crew base, make a stop at the big O&D source, and then head along. TWA surely flew a lot of heavies out of STL at one time, and they had a bunch of routes like that starting in STL and passing through JFK. I can't imagine ORD was quite as key to their system, but you don't want to miss out on the Chicago to Europe traffic. I seem to recall there was nearly always a 74 parked on or around the Charlie pad back in the day. I miss seeing the big iron gliding across 170. Didn't get onto 70 through north St. Louis much then, but I bet it was a sight watching it settle as you drove towards the airport.

They sure did because I remember flying that 747 from ORD-STL as a kid one summer.
