Re: Random airline-questions.
Does AA Gold or Platinum get free checked baggage on transatlantic Basic Economy fares operated (one way) by BA?
AA will tell you yes and BA will tell you no.
I had such a flight but it was on AA stock and operated by BA.
I made sure there were sufficient notes on the PNR and ticket by an AA agent which recorded that the AA agent told me that if BA charges me, AA will refund me.
That's exactly what happened. After the flight the second or third rep I spoke to told me exactly where to find the online form. (Not the regular refund form.)
After filling it out they responded about 2 weeks later asking for receipts and they sent me a check.

Re: Narrow-body across a wide-body (of water) Nice write up.
I took this flight a few years ago. While there are much better business classes available on this route, it's a very unique experience which was well worth it.

Re: Narrow-body across a wide-body (of water)
does it stop in SNN on JFK-LCY too?
The runway in JFK is long enough for an A318 loaded full with fuel and it can land empty of fuel at LCY.

Good Shabbos to all, and a meaningful fast starting mtzh shbs.
The meaningful should start now! Especially since the fast only starts after Shabbos. We can focus on the positive and meaningful part for the next 24 hours.

Re: Hertz Master Thread
Thanks. I'm using the barclays arrival+ card, do I need any of these things they are offering?

Available Optional Items At The Counter
I can't speak for this specific case but generally speaking...
Liability Insurance Supplement  daily15.88 USD

Liability, covers damage to a vehicle or people other than the car you are driving and it's passengers. Credit cards generally do not cover this. If you have your own auto insurance they may cover this.

Loss Damage Waiver  daily38.99 USD
LDW, covers damage to the property of the car rental company (the car you're renting) and is covered by most credit cards IF YOU DON'T HAVE PERSONAL AUTO INSURANCE.

Personal Accident Insurance / Personal Effects Coverage  daily6.95 USD
I'm not 100% sure about this one but I think it's for people and property not belonging to the rental company but they are damaged in your car. I'm not sure if this is covered by CC but if all the people in the car have health insurance and you don't have expensive stuff it may not be necessary.
Premium Emergency Roadside Service  daily8.99 USD

Roadside, although your credit card may cover you for LDW or you may have purchased it from the rental company, that doesn't mean they will come get the car from you if you have an accident. If you will need a tow-truck to get you because the car is no longer usable you may need roadside assistance. Some higher end cards offer this and you can purchase it from companies like AAA for a minimal annual fee with no connection to auto insurance.

Re: Random questions.
Why does the On The Road board not get much traffic? (pun intended)

To me it seems like the other boards get responses to questions faster/more often.

Just an observation I made.

Case in point, can anyone help me out with my question here?

If you can, thanks!! And if you can't, thanks for trying because I do know that most of you will click above just to see the question, right? :)
Mission accomplished

Re: Hertz Master Thread
Thanks so much! Based on this I think I'm good?
That covers you for LDW if you have no auto insurance but it had exclusions such as the model/price of the vehicle and may have other exceptions.

Re: HELP!! Flight canceled, what next?
So how do I get them to?
I think @shapsam is making 2 statements.
There are no direct flights from PHL-TLV

Try find the flights which you want them to put you on. If they are one world partners, ask them to put you on those flights by giving them the flight numbers.
Direct PHL-TLV?? Very hard to get them to rebook outside of oneworld.

Re: Meir Kay should take down the homosexual video and issue an apology It all boils down to:
Guilty until proven innocent or innocent until proven guilty. Same for Mezuzos scandal, same for any of the Kashrus scandals, same with this.
If you're okay using/consuming anything that "everyone uses", you're going with an attitude of innocent until proven guilty and you're going to burn yourself once before each time you define something as guilty/improper.
If you only listen to someone you know is kosher, buy from a Softer you know is Kosher, eat from a company/brand you know is kosher, then you won't burn yourself, and you'll tend to get annoyed by people who burn themselves and go around parading as if they've discovered America, whilst you think "who asked them to go that way in the first place?".

I hope people can make some sense or of my rant.

End rant
