Good or Cheap?

Others say:

1. Good
2. Cheap
3. Quick

Pick any two

This product has been in a coma for a while now, just got an email from Amex that they are pulling the plug on it towards the end of October.

Hope that's better

Definitely better. Thanks and Liked!

Please please please post pics (theres a sticky at the top of the Trip Report forum with instructions for posting pics).

Was it worth the money and effort? What would you do differently knowing what you know now?

I'm looking for reasonably priced durable spinner luggage suitable for overseas flights. Actual linear dimensions must be 62" or less (including wheels). I have an Ebags credit and the Ebags AMEX deal, so I looked at everything with a decent customer rating there. Every one that fits my criteria has reviews that say something broke on the first or second trip.

That might be more of a testament to the quality of most manufacturers coupled with rough handling by baggage handlers. Did you check higher end (and thus pricier) brands?

Also keep in mind that one review out of hundreds stating that a wheel broke might be normal even for quality brands.

Up In The Air / Re: How to get status
« on: Yesterday at 01:05:28 PM »
I have about 150,000 United miles which I am afraid to use because I am trying to get status.  What should I be doing?w

Status is (mostly) earned through flying, and typically has nothing to do with your mileage balances.

Pics? Impressions? Timeline? Transportation? Costs? Planning?

Unless EK starts TLV service, it doesn't seem like TLV will see an A380.

Considering what UAE did to Qatar, EK will do only fly to TLV after Moshiach comes.

2) who says Ben Gurion runways can accept a a380? I don't think that airport ever had one land there yet. CMIIW.

TLV can apparently handle a380s:

Topic title should include Saratoga/lake George for people searching in the future

Done, hope you and the OP approve.

Credit Cards / Re: Which CC should we use Starwood or chase ink
« on: July 21, 2017, 01:09:23 PM »
My husband for work needs to rent a Starwood hotel room for long term use (like over 100,000$)  He has the Chase blue ink business card and the Starwood's credit card. Which CC would give us the better rewards? Or is there a different card that'd be better
Thank you

How does this make sense in the long term vs. renting/leasing a place?

What about being an argumentative contrarian on online forums. Is that a character flaw?

Deeply flawed individual who needs a 12-step program.  Totally.

Correct.

My R&F doesn't have those, but really doesn't need 'em. It's bad comfortable leaning your back on the tall-ish arm/side and putting your feet up on the sofa. And the sofa is long and deep enough that DW and I (both ~5'10") could comfortably sit this way on opposite sides of the sofa facing each other.

Low self esteem is a character defect.

Someone with low-self-esteem is a deeply flawed individual (your original statement that I objected to), let me go on the record saying that I'm personally offended :D

I got a couch and a lazyboy, from La-Z-Boy. Both excellent, and come with lifetime warranty on the mechanics (not the cushions).

What mechanics does a (non-sleeper) sofa have? Footrests that you can pop up?
