Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are wiling to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

Don't know where to post this.

What does everyone here think about taking a 10:33 pm delta flight on mother Shabbos when according to Waze on Saturday night I would be getting there 930 pm.
 
We are A couple with no kids we have tsa precheck and we will probably be checking in bags.

Also worst case Scenario if we miss the flight do we get on the next night flight easily?

TIA
from my experience I was always pushed onto the next flight should there be a delay or missed the flight, but wait for some others to answer. (wait for the pros..)
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

I would like to go NYC-TLV RT this summer. Is using AA to fly AB a pretty good value?

Is there a place I can find out why my United flight was delayed, so that I can start my compensation process.

I don't think you can split them back up after.

One is that one of the household members needs to be a passenger on any booking. There are ways around that, though.

I find there is a zone for Amazon deals. Can I post deal there? Is there anything I must to know? Will my post be deleted?
