    Sorry, misposted - that was meant for the UA forum.

    ==

    But here's something: BOS-ANC rt for $342 via ORD; or via EWR and SEA for $351,
    0 or 3 night stay, departing Oct. 8 or 9, UA. Other dates around then also reasonable.
    Other airlines also reasonable.

    Sorry, but you can't say "beer" and "Bud" in the same sentence. Beer is a pleasant-tasting fermented drink made of barley, hops and water. "Bud" is a lightly coloured fizzy drink similar to water but with less flavour.

    I'm still amazed that anyone, even 'kids' in their 20's, drink Bud and Coors.

    You aren't in touch with most everything between the coasts! And you think Pabst is any better? Next thing you know, Hamm's will be hipster heaven.

    Really, the off-putting thing is for those who have paid or redeemed miles for a premium cabin international trip and have to pay for anything other than swill. Fly another airline and for (often) the same price, there is a mid-shelf self pour bar, with wines that aren't a chemical bath and cause instant heartburn. Fly this airline, and you get swill for free, and then tip for the pleasure. :(

    Not me. I won't order another drink from the bar at the UCs, so no more tips. Perhaps that's what UA actually wants.

    If only there were more amex clubs.

    I am starting to show my age.. but I remember when tmobile charged for WiFi in the clubs and everyone had to collect chits for free drinks.

    Also, one of the perks were telephones where you can make local calls.
