  1. I wear my diamond studs 24/7. I'm to the point where I rarely, if ever, even take another pair on a cruise. Maybe a pair of big gold hoops to wear one night just to change it up but that's about it.
  2. Your dresses are all bright colors, so a single pair nude color heels/wedges work with all of them. If you really wanted to, you could dress up a couple of them with a pair silver or gold glitzy heels for the fancier nights but still wear a single pair of nude heeled sandals the other nights. That at least keeps it to two pair.
  3. And before dinner, splurge and have cocktails at the Pavilion Bar, atop the Market Pavilion Hotel. They are only a short block away from each other and the rooftop atmosphere at the Pavilion Bar is lovely, you can see the harbor, the Ravenel Bridge, etc. Don't look at the prices, just consider it a splurge, LOL. (It's one of my favorite places to go downtown. Anytime I have reason to be downtown, like if I have to go by the courthouse for some reason or the Apple store, I treat myself to lunch up there.)
  4. If they are offering true premium economy on domestic routes, that's impressive. Delta, and others, typically only offer the TRUE premium economy internationally. Just the economy+ type products domestically
  5. Are you referring to true premium economy, which is generally only offered by airlines for transcontinental flights, or maybe rarely on transcontinental flights? Or are you referring to the economy plus products that many airlines offer? They are vastly different. If the latter, it is likely NOT like US airlines domestic first, which I would rank well ahead of any time of economy plus product. Economy plus is usually only some extra legroom, but the exact same seat as regular economy, no wider, and no fewer per row. Also, may include free cocktails, but otherwise the same meal service, or lack thereof, as regular economy. Domestic first, on the other hand, is a much wider seat and fewer per row than economy, and often includes meal service on many flights when it is not offered in economy. This is true in the short run, but much of what has been cut for virus-related reasons will return.
  6. Actually it might work as previously stated. I disputed a credit card charge last fall. I was given an immediate credit on my account while they investigated. In the end, it if turned out to be fraud, the credit would be permanent; if not, I would be charged again to cancel out the credit. Same process several times with a couple of smaller charges for subscriptions that I canceled and continued to get charged for. I got immediate credit, merchant never responded so the credit became permanent.
  7. I flew into LGA a couple of times about a year ago. At the time the ride share pick up spot was a shuttle ride away so I just opted to get a cab both times and did so with no line. And no major construction delay leaving the airport. That was a year ago, take it for what it's worth.
  8. What I'm generally hearing in my Delta frequent flyer forums is no pre-departure beverage, and in flight is the same plastic bag as coach, containing a small bottle of water, crackers, cookies and a hand sanitizer wipe. No ice, no alcohol, no other beverages.
  9. You CAN be....after you sail on Celebrity enough to earn that status.
  10. Are you aware that in many of these cases, the cruise lines are simply telling passengers, "sorry, we know we used to handle things like this and give refunds for the air but we aren't doing that now. You need to contact the airline." Yes, I'm talking about people who booked air via the cruise line.
  11. Sure, if they do it it's about customer retention or competition or whatever, but it's still their decision to do that. So it's "generous" in that they are voluntarily giving exceptions to their policies that they don't have to, legally.
  12. Your cruise being canceled has no bearing on the airline ticket you bought from Delta. Your contract with them was dependent on you doing anything in particular at your destination; it was simply to get you there. For now, they can apparently still do that, and your ticket was a non-refundable fare, so from their perspective the cruise cancellation is completely irrelevant.
  13. I know you're question has already been answered, but want to add this: If you bought a non-refundable fare, and the flight isn't canceled, they would ordinarily have no obligation to provide a refund. What you do when you get to your destination (cruise, work, family visit, whatever) is your business, not theirs. So if that reason is canceled, it isn't the airline's fault; they have fulfilled their obligation to you by getting you there. Luckily, as you've since seen, AC is one of the many airlines who ARE, voluntarily, currently adjusting change/cancellation/refund policies for flights they have not canceled. It's actually extremely generous of them.
  14. Using miles is often not a very good value; it depends on both how many miles the airline wants vs. the cash price. Be aware that until the airfare is paid for, the ticket hasn't actually been purchased from the airline so the itinerary could change.
  15. There are anecdotal reports about the middle seat situation in various frequent flyer forums. 1. Airlines are being cagey with their verbiage but it will not be a permanent change, so depending on when you plan to fly, I wouldn't bank on the middle seats being empty. 2. Some airlines may be saying empty middle seats is their goal in the short term, but seem to be making some exceptions when demand warrants.
