Is 35K mileageplus points (+$0) a good value for upgrade to premium economy for UA EWR-TLV?

$$cost to upgrade is $1,399 (does this even factor in the calculation?)

Iíve been there four times in the last year. No issues. Just mind your own business and youíll be fine. I wrote an Article in Ami Magazine about it. PM me if you need.

Thanks. Trip was postponed for now but I WILL reach out when/if it is rescheduled

Destination Guides And Trip Planning / turkey safe today?

I may need to make a business trip to Turkey in the next few weeks. One of my colleagues told me he had been there 20 years ago but that it was very unsafe now for Jews. Anyone have any insight into this? Are there hot spots to avoid? are public, touristy places ok, is it beter or worse in the interior? Any ideas are welcome. TIA

La Gondola was great (I did NOT like the avocado eggrolls :-\), Breakfast in Delice was awesome although the bakery stuff was overpriced and overrated. Pats was pretty good too, but the steaks in either of those places is not spectacular.

I am consistently disappointed by the steaks in LA whether from La Gondola, Pats, Shilo's or Ditmas every steak I've had has been bland and boring (I've havent been to Oxnard). I have much better experience home in NY although the price difference is amazing. I find that it is much cheaper in LA.

I've never checked in, in advance, online for a hotel room. I have been offered the option by Hamoton Inns for an upcoming reservation. Has any one ever done it? Is there a downside?

Chabad in Mumbai advertises a "restaurant", has any one been there? Can you review it? Can one have a business meeting there?

When I was in Mumbai in 2014 the CHABAD apt was around the corner from the Inercontinental, very convenient for Shabbos ( especially since the rooms start on the 4th floor). Now that it has moved back to Nariman house are there any good hotels similarly conveniently nearby? Anyone know?

relly like to watch Brady play, truly one of the greats, if not the greatest today but.....

I simply dont believe a word he or Belichick say ever. Certainly not in this case. The QB dictates exactly how he wants the balls. He would NEVER accept getting balls that dont feel right to him.

Going to Israel later this week and need a mifi still for a week. Any suggestion for the best (cheapest and reliable) place to get it?
