Trip Reports / Boston MA - 1 Day.
« on: Today at 12:27:41 AM »
Boston MA Trip Notes
One day overnight trip 
Tickets were bought with B2 sale @ 62 PP RT. 


Departure

Arrived at EWR P6 it took  20 minutes to arrive at the gate.

As usual, bus ride from P6 took 10 minutes.

B6 Late Saturday Night - Slight 20 minutes delay.

Day

Shacharit @ Congregation Beth Pinchas https://goo.gl/maps/LogxkXKxjF4nnSFdA - Davened with the 8:30 minyan (it took them 45 minutes).

Breakfast @ Pure Cold Press - Healthy - $$  - Decent food , I ordered online for instore sit down, was told, to note with online order that we will be eating in store

Duck Tour https://tickets.bostonducktours.com/Info.aspx?EventID=3 - 42 PP - You can buy tickets at Museum of Science - If you leave before Before 9 Am you get a 9.50 Discount. We bought our adults tickets with groupon, they offer a discount and infant ticket with the tour directly, Groupon does not give the option for child ticket purchases. We left the duck in the beginning of the tour and got refunded by groupon and duck tours (split purchase) due to baby crying.

Museum of Science - Admission $29-$37 PP - They had a super interesting exhibit https://www.mos.org/exhibits/body-worlds it was about the human body. It took us over three hours to view. It's cheaper to purchase Museum tickets with Duck Boat tours, during season they have a booth immediately outside the Museums the front doors. 

Rami's Kosher Food - ME Food - $ - called for a quick grab on the way to the airport. They had it all ready for us and they had amazing service with tasty food.  https://www.ramisboston.com/ - https://goo.gl/maps/ke3MvAu5wznQaAQv

15 Minutes from car Rental to gate 

Departed BOS to EWR sunday afternoon.   

Hotels

The Liberty, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Boston - Hotel has fierly nice rooms. - Upgraded to slightly larger room - Crazy club in lobby with blaring music on weekends so avoid if you want a decent stay.

Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Re: Mauritius or Seychelles
« on: Yesterday at 01:52:56 AM »
any info on award flights from nyc i understand its a big q but any help is appreciated
Mauritius - u can use Ethiad miles for Air Mauritius. They dont have gr8 availability form EU but do have decent form SA. U can search in EF.

Seychelles - You  can go with Saudi Airline - I believe they make 1 seat available in F, u can book with DL for 85K

This is based on what I remember form researching. I'm sure their are more options  such as SA from JNB.

They will for an extra 22.5K pp (VA)  its only an hour flight PDX-SEA or 7K pp (Skymiles) for F or about $125ish pp.

Virgin sweetspot is on NS Delta flights, when you add a leg(s), it may cost an arm and maybe a leg even if it is short flight


Did u try calling? not sure but possible flight # has to match.

What happens on chassidish phones, stays on chassidish phones.

Anyone's phone, not limited to a specific sect. Its a public # anyone can call, I believe there are no secrets.

EL AL lost luggage, they say permanently. was about 48 hours ago. sheitels, clothes etc. CC no help in this scenario and customer service says to put in a complaint online, which errors out. any recourse?

What CC?

U should be covered by the Montreal Convention and that's up to 1700 +/-. You can try with the airline based common sense and see where u get with that first. Keep in mind the Montreal convention has a time frame u gotta submit your claim by.

Credit Cards / Re: got royaly messed over on cardcash.com
« on: December 04, 2019, 03:15:58 PM »
I think that's perfect. I don't think you even need to say "or you risk losing the cardís value." but if both DD and CC are ok with that then sure.

+1, will just mix ppl up.
