Cool, but that's only if you take a bigger cover.
..and are fine with it being easier to spill / make a mess everywhere.

A agent told me on award booking as gold under 500 miles I still won't be on the upgrade list is that true?
Yes, it's only on revenue tickets (unless EXP or higher).

The JCC in Palo Alto just opened a space with different vendors offering different style foods. Yemeni, Fleishig, Sushi and a coffee place coming soon! All under the Vaad.

Feel free to PM with questions as I don't check the forums often enough
Cool, thanks for the information.

General info pages:

Links to the 3 food places (all say online ordering only). Canít find anything about the Cafe yet.

Link to the Vaad website showing all 3 are certified.

Iíve had good experience using Prime Now

Most bochrim (at least my friends) didn't have who to ask and ended up renting most of the time. It was really starting to add up and it would take a whole day of headspace being hopefull the car would be there (or need to leave work early to go pick up a car from a more reputable rental place).
The idea of the gemach really started when a friend who wasn't really interested in a second date refused to go out again even though she really wanted to simply because it was very expensive and he felt it was a waste of money as well as a headache dealing with renting and parking etc.
He agreed that if money wasn't an issue he would be willing to go on a second date (although he still felt it was a waste of time and headache) .

So from there we started thinking of ways to alleviate these problems.

 The idea was getting some people who have cars with garages who usually don't need their car during the evening hours lend out their cars for bochrim to date.

At the end we all just moved on in life and unfortunately it never panned out. Although I still think (once logistics are worked out) it's a great idea for a gemach and would really help bochrim in this regard.
Let the girl find and pay for a car.
(ok, move this to the other thread)

Do I know you?
He's just a Lurker.

Makes sense.
Wouldn't you want to wait until a bunch of regular donations come in first, in order to quickly see how much "needs" to be matched?

Instead of all the matches going in first..

Iíll match $360 as well.

Meh. It's missing the United classic ;)

A musician named Dave Carroll recently had difficulty with United Airlines.  United apparently damaged his treasured Taylor guitar during a flight.  Dave spent over 9 months trying to get United to pay for damages caused by baggage handlers to his custom Taylor guitar.  During his final exchange with the United Customer Relations Manager, he stated that he was left with no choice other than to create a music video for youtube        exposing their lack of cooperation.  The Manager responded : "Good luck with that one, pal".
So he posted a retaliatory video on youtube.  The video has since received over 5.5 million hits.  United Airlines contacted the musician and attempted settlement in exchange for pulling the video. Naturally his response was: "Good luck with that one, pal".
Taylor Guitars sent the musician 2 new custom guitars in appreciation for the product recognition from the video that has lead to a sharp increase in orders.
Here's the video ..

It seems to be oddly route specific without rhyme or reason. For example CVG-MDW allows CLE-MDW, but CVG-PHX did not allow CLE-PHX.
Hence how I set up the OP for DPs. Though perhaps my example is a one-off?
Could be. I haven't looked at / booked many routes to notice discrepancies like that.

Here are some DP's then.
SFO-LAX changed to OAK-LGB (was able to change between the above mentioned airports as well)
DEN-IAD changed to DEN-BWI (was able to change between the above mentioned airports as well)
OAK-BWI allowed changing both directions between any of the above mentioned airports.

Anyone know a way to sell a leased Ford to Vroom or similar company without having to buy it yourself first and eat the taxes?

Out of my 66 entries so far, the only notable wins were 4000 + 40 + 1 main cabin extra seat.

I just logged on and it said 9 spins available and I got a 10th for the daily fact. I have been using my spins each day so this isn't from the past days. Anyone else get this?
