    Frontier has the $11 each way sales. I think this is the 2nd day of a 2 day sale, but they have them frequently these days.

    Sadly, they don’t fly out of Birmingham. That’s an incredible price.

    We booked a couple flights. In some cases it’s cheaper than gas to drive to a local!

    Btw I’m pretty sure @MNSlotLover cancelled his August trip. Good luck during yours though!

    I think I will be canceling my August trip. I was planning on going for a slot tournament at ti. Just got an email today saying it's been canceled. Think I may plan on week 1 of the NFL in September. Will still stay at ti. Most likely will still be a solo trip. I need me some Vegas.

    I’m still going!!! In a few weeks. Southwest has stopped with the red banner telling me I can change my flights so I’m hopeful the ones I have booked won’t change. I can live on Skinny Pop and take out on the terrace I have a new camera and I know exactly how I’m spending my food and beverage minimums on my daybeds. I have an abundance of cute masks and a chunk of time before and after my trip to isolate at home. I actually feel like it’s going to happen.

    Since you're in healthcare are you allowed to drive across to Windsor to pick up an extra passenger or two? :)

    Haha! Maybe we can figure out a plan involving a boat or hiring you to do the grossest parts of my job.

    Casinos in Michigan allowed to open on 8/5/20 at 15% capacity btw. Hopefully it pushes some movement on your side.

    It would be nice. From what I understand the issue right now is that Ontario has a hard indoor capacity limit of 50 for casinos, theatres, gyms, etc. Yet the "big box" stores are limited by square footage (which works out to much more than 50 people for large stores). So it's inconsistent. But Caesars Windsor is basically saying that a hard cap of 50 in the building doesn't even cover all their staff so there's no point in opening. However, my local is really small and 50 would actually work quite nicely - in fact it would be busy - but after 3 full weeks of being allowed to be open they still haven't figured out a way. It's weird.

    The next border decision comes up August 21 - hopefully y'all in the US get this thing under control again so we can all continue to make cautious progress.

    I look forward to the @claired67 photo journalism in a couple weeks though :)

    I just canceled my August 28th - September 1st trip. I just won't chance it since I'm flying from NYC. I can't quarantine for 2 weeks when I get back. My May trip was canceled by MGM since they were closed. This will be the first year since 1996 I won't have some time in Vegas. I called MLife (Aria) to let them know of my cancel they just canceled with no discussion of hoping to have me back at some point next year. The Rep. I spoke to also indicated that I will lose my Gold status at the end of 2020. I explained to her that I thought there was communication from MLife holding everyone's status through 2021, but she knew nothing about it. Aren't they freezing MLife status for everyone through next year?

    SWA is trying to make me cancel but it’s not going to work. I will check my flight everyday before I leave.

    They just changed my flight from DTW to MDW and MDW to LAS which would be fine if the flight to Vegas didn’t leave before I landed.

    In June (before I canceled) they had me DTW-BWI-OKC-LAS. I’d do it today and tell everyone I was taking a cross country trip to make it seem fun.

    MLife extended their year through 12/31/2020 (normally resets 9/30) and lowered the number of tier credits to achieve each level. For Gold, it’s 60,000 instead of 75,000 points.

    So unfortunately, you’ll reset at the end of the year. You can earn points at any of their properties if you can go to a different location or by using their credit card.

    Are you figuring in the time change in Chicago?

    @aprilroncincy I did. And the flight from
    DTW usually lands a little earlier but I still would have needed a time machine. And I always get the stupid gate that is 100 miles from the concourse so I always look for a longer layover if I’m going thru MDW.

    Now my early bird is gone. Don’t care. I fully expect more flight changes anyways. I know I’m gonna call customer service again at some point in the next few weeks and I’ll ask then. As long as middle seats are blocked I couldn’t care less where I sit as long as I get my $50 back.

    I took the head off the nicest guy at work on Sunday. I need this. I’m going. One way or another.

    A4a and A4b are the worst gates at MDW for sure. I thought I was walking directly to the tarmac the first time I got one of those lol
