    Well, I've finally been hit by AA's flight reductions where Tue and Wed flights have been eliminated. I need to make a day trip from LAX to SJC next week. In the past, I've taken a ~7 AM flight up, and a ~6 PM flight back.

    Went to book this trip - the 7 AM flight no longer operates on Tue and Wed. It operates at 7:10 AM on Mon, Thurs, and Fri.

    Delta's first flight gets me there too late. Corporate travel policy gives me untold grief if I try UA (it gets reported by the agency to the CFO's office). Meaning that I'll be taking WN next week.....

    I'm sorry for your plight.

    That said...for the love of all things holy, please let this thread turn into 30+ pages about the terrible things AA has done to the Bay Area. It's been too long.

    You'll like WN; just pay the extra $10 to get a decent boarding number (hence seat). IMHO a WN 737 beats an Eagle toy jet any day (except, maybe, one with toy first class).

    I used to like WN when I was A list and was doing SAT-BWI every 2 weeks.

    However, since I had to book through Corporate travel, none of the WN site features work. That means.... no Early Bird Check-in, no inclusion of my FF number, no ability to pull up the ressie through my RR account, even after puttingthe number in the record. In other words, as a corporate customer, I am treated far worse on WN than on anyone else.... I might as well have a paper ticket.

    If WN would fix some of those long-standing issues, it would be easier to choose....
