If you will allow me, I will say that CX J is not that much better than DL J. Especially on the 747.

the 747 is gone on tlv route for almost 9 months... but even on the 747 dl j to cx j what are you smoking??

Looks like ITA Matrix 3.0 has launched.

On first glance, seems to be cosmetically different but nothing stands out in terms of functionality.



They removed the most valuable function on matrix. the surrounding airports search, its almost worthless now.

I've done LH F and CX F multiple times.

I''ll do SQ R twice this year, as well as EK F twice.

And I don't plan to redeem for LY F... well, because


sure your choice - you will never know what you are missing out,
Just FYI I have zero pull towards LY if you know me, im just calling it like it is.

as the hard OR soft product of CX/SQ/LH is disingenuous, IMO.

well there is only one difference between us, I flew SQ R LH F CX F and LY F you didn't, come back to me after you fly LY F to have this debate.

The last think I would do is deal w brining food from restaurant to plane to eat...


Bingo, enough with shlepping food and eating out on container and being busy with he foods half of flight, guys you don't understand the pleasure of sitting down getting served a proper meal and awesome high end wine and going to sleep - IFE and FA's do nothing for me the SQ girls are just a pain in the a..

guys come back to us after you tried it, you don't have an objective opinion, if LY F would fly to Europe I would choose them over Sq and lh f,

We weren't arguing about LY F vs. DL/UA/US J.
Was arguing about a theoretical LY F vs UA F.

All else being equal I'd definitively fly LY F over UA J but the same is true for most F vs J scenarios.

you don't have an objective opinion without flying them. I flew SQ suites multiple times this year and I enjoyed LY f more.

Both considering service and food.

Dan have you flown ly f?

It's better than Mehadrin. It has rabbanut but also has a another hashgacha that is by Rav Borenstien. The meat is all Rubin and the owner is very makpid on kashrus, he himself is very frum. I have friends that will eat there and won't eat Mehadrin meat.

We had a deluxe room it had room for a roll away. (Just barely) it was a big room but they put so much furniture in it. I got free breakfast as a Diamond. I also got upgraded from superior king to deluxe twin.

Parking is so convenient and free. You take elevator right to the room. Overall, better than any other hotel I have been to. I hope they keep up the good work.

parking is not free at , but the place is unorganized yet so no one was there to ask you for any credentials.

I was just gold and got free breakfast, I think everyone gets free breakfast,

food is really sub par,

the hotel doesn't really have a lobby, the entrance has a boutique hotel feel do it,
the only place to hang out in the the courtyard,

the rooms itself call absolutely gorgeous,

I think as far as lobby/food/ambiance the David Citadel is way better than the WA.

For me it's not worth the walk and shelp to go out on the terminal, You get the same booze bath cigars and private room in the FCL In fra and muc,  not sure what food you are talking about, the kosher food with is inedible?

is it blasphemous to say that IMHO, the FCT is completely overrated?
+1 I've been many times, I don't get the hype at all
If you don't eat there's really nothing to do there.
