In the summer, do enough people go to Vail for shabbos to make a minyan?
Reach out to Chabad to see. http://www.jewishvail.com/

Wow, great report! Thanks for taking the time. The detail you go into clearly shows your interest and knowledge of the war, ships, army, historical time. It's always enjoyable to read about something the author is passionate about.

If you downgrade after 30 days from getting the AF, will it get prorated?

We're arriving around noon in DUB on Wednesday where we'll stay though Sunday. We'll be travelling with a 2 year old and an 8 month old. We want to go to Belfast to see the Titanic museum. Does it make sense to just go for the day, or does it make more sense to spend the night and come back on Friday?

FWIW there are same day return train tickets that are cheaper than a return ticket on different days.
I don't know what else there is to do in Belfast (do some research to see), but if nothing else, you can come back that night. Museum takes a nice amount of hours if you go slowly (which for a fan, makes sense). You'll be cutting it close to missing closing time of the next-door shipyard where the ship was actually built. We missed it when we went, so can't comment on how worth it it is.

Next time try their Sushi - its really fresh and good
We considered it, but none of the menu options had the fish types that we liked, but yeah will consider it more next time!

Went to La Brochette last night, and it was awesome! Surprised it isn't talked about here more often. Yes, it's in the more expensive category, but I may have found a new favorite place.

Spring egg rolls - insane flavor
Brisket tacos - yummm
Pepper crusted steak - just the right amount of pepper, awesome sauce, top notch steak
Black angus steak - I'm really picky about having fat, so I didn't like having to cut away a lot but it's supposedly the leaner version of their center rib eye. With it's sauce, it had a great flavor, but I'd try something else next time
Strawberry daquiri - mmmmmm, barely tasted the alcohol :P
Chocolate lava cake - as perfect as this dessert normally is

Super great service and ambiance, waiter didn't even write our order down, bar tender comes over to take drink orders, waiter was happy to answer menu questions and as others have said you don't feel like the tables are on top of each other, and it's relatively quiet compared to other restaurants.

My only complaint was that the receipt's suggested tips were 20, 22, 25. I really don't like that because I normally tip 15% at restaurants and 18% when I get good service. So I tipped 18%, but I didn't want the waiter to feel that he didn't do a good job, I just simply don't tip that high normally.

Up In The Air / Re: Kosher Meals - Can we do better?

Guys shouldn't we be complaining to the top suppliers....what options do the airlines have?

Hermis from Londen?

From the U.S. Bornstein is really the only option. Instead of complaining to the airlines complain to Bornstein...especially as a Jewish company with the responsibility and privilege of being the exclusive provider of kosher meals they really should take it upon themselves to up their game...also why not take a little profit loss and offer even the economy meals to be a little substantial.
When was the last time you saw someone voluntarily take a profit loss?

Any update on the site @milechazzer?

Crave for example is Mehuderet, whatever that's supposed to mean.
Lol haven't seen that before.

Keyword "Israel".
He lives in Israel now 6 months a year. Been doing that for close to a decade.

Dan, I feel your pain. Go through when I visit Israel as well. As much as you don't know what's appropriate to eat at it gets even harder when your friends and family want to go out to places that you know you definitely wouldn't eat at.

Rarely helps.
Which Rav in Israel did you hear that from?
Rav Teitz told me he eats in restaurants that have Rabbanut Yerushalayim Mehadrin supervision, not the plain Rabbanut Yerushalayim. He also said he eats non-fleishig products that are Rabbanut Yerushalayimg (presumably products as in that which you find in a grocery store).

I feel all your pain going to an AI and can't eat the food.
I had plenty of cereal. And some alcohol.

And Dan gave valid hypotheses why not from LAX.
