Just got a bunch of 80k offers in the mail.  I've been out of the game for a minute, but these don't appear to have any restrictive language.  Is that still a thing?  Any reason I wouldn't get the bonus on them if I have existing biz gold cards?

I plan on going skydiving, this will be my first time. I'm debating whether I should pay an extra $120 to get a video of it?
I would love to hear some opinions from people that have gone skydiving before and paid for a video, whether they think it's worth it or not?

Definitely.  Although pics are more important than vid IMO

I did the German version and it was a great decision.  No negative effects, yet.

Cool. How did you enjoyt MLA? I was just there and I am very impressed!

Loved it!  We were visiting friends there so they showed us all the touristy spots as well as where the locals hang out.


Everything went relatively smoothly. Waltzed right in AMS and MLA. They wouldn't let us on our flight from MLA to ATH since our negative tests didn't have our passport numbers on them 🙄

Flew to ZRH instead. No issues. Same with SPU, no need for a negative test as an EU citizen. Didn't have a chance to swing by TUN this time unfortunately.

Cool! Enjoy Dubrovnik! Probably amazing in the summer without the cruise ships tourists. How long are you staying in TUN? any plans there?

Thanks!  We'll be spending most of the trip in Croatia traveling up the coast.  Tunisia is just 2 days to visit some friends in Hammamet.  They're gonna show us around

What’s your itinerary?

JFK-AMS-MLA-TUN-FCO-DBV.  AMS and FCO are probably just transit hubs at this point

Not sure how I'm coming home yet.

Or better go to Djerba! I was just there had an amazing time it is a very unique place I don’t think there’s such a place in the world (I’ve been to 77 countries...)!!

I'm swinging by Tunis on this trip if everything goes according to plan lol

is there any country in the EU that is allowing in usa or israeli citizens in?

Not in the EU, but Croatia is with either a negative test from within 48 hours prior to arrival or 14 day quarantine.

I just did this a few weeks ago. JFK-CDG-WAW. Poland doesn’t let anyone fly in from outside the EU but no restrictions within Schengen.

Short answer: No issues whatsoever.

Long answer: I knew that I wouldn’t have any issue from the authorities as my second flight was intra Schengen and there are no border controls within Schengen but I was afraid that the airline would make problems... i flew delta from JFK and the only thing they cared was to make sure that I and my family were allowed to enter Europe (they didn’t have à European passport so I brought a proof of our marriage). When I entered France the officer only wanted to see a proof of mariage. For the second flight there was no passport control at all as predicted.

(This also apply to intra Schengen flights let’s say you’re in Sweden and want to go to Lithuania, you can fly in to Poland and drive to Lithuania and no one will ask you anything at the border but you wouldn’t be allowed to fly. As far as I know this is 100% legal as well)

This is perfect, thanks!  Exactly what I was hoping.  I just read on Malta's site that they're only allowing intra-Schengen passengers in if you've been in the region for 14 days.  Worst case we'll just hop on flights somewhere else in the EU or to TUN.

Thanks again!

MLA has access to your entry information from AMS since they are both Schengen members AFAIK

Gotcha.  But what if we "transit" AMS on our American passports but instead of hopping on the connection to ZAG we grab flights to MLA.  Will they still be able to tell that we were recently in the US?

Wondering if anyone had any insight on this.  Have an EU passport, planning on flying from the US-AMS-MLA.  MLA states that you can come from any EU country as long as you've been there for 14 days.  Can they tell how long I've been in the EU if it's not an official connecting flight?

Will be doing a rapid test the morning of the flight and continuing to ZAG instead if MLA doesn't work.

Current Hyatt value if I'm buying?  In the 50-100k range

Is it worth losing 3 hours of vacation to fly TAP's 330-900neo rather than one of their other 330s?

Any links to 50k for any personal version?  Or anyone want to send me a referral?

Are they seeking 10k in damages FOR the victims?  Or looking for 10k retainer FROM the victims?  Post is written poorly

i know this was discussed, but was there a definitive answer as to whether or not the AA gift card is still working for the airline credit?

I did it 12/30/18 and got credit.  Have there been reports to the contrary since then?

You liked EY F 789 over A380?

I think I discussed it before; yeah, had a really poor experience the time I flew the 380, and I found the bed really uncomfortable.  I probably even liked Q-suites more.
