Does anyone know where they do Kapparot in the Long Island/Queens are. Most places by me (Great Neck) end at 6pm. Is there anything open til later? 9-10-11? I recall places on Main St. that have it but is it open later? If so, do they do kisooy dam?

Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Mano Cruise Line
« on: June 16, 2011, 05:00:02 PM »

I will be journeying on Mano Cruise (Royal Iris) from Haifa to the Greek Isles the first week of July. Has anyone ever been on it? I know it wont be anywhere on par with the US Chartered Lines, but does anyone know what I should expect? (insert Greek government joke)

Did some research, but hoping to get feedback from a ddf member

Up In The Air / Delta or SkyTeam Help
« on: January 02, 2011, 10:56:38 PM »
(changed username from jongad to jong)

I'm having some strangely frustrating results..

I'm looking to book Award Ticket JFK - TLV on Jun 26th Return July 13 or 14. is offering 160k non-stop returning the 13th.

155k gets it with a layover in Atlanta or Paris (it changes daily)

If I were to do a layover, i'd only one in AMS. Now when I search the same dates with a paid flight, I am getting results with a 15 hr layover in AMS (which is perfect) coming in and Non-stop for the return. However, its not showing up on award search.

Why can't I book award travel with the layover in AMS if its a result on a paid search? Is it because delta doesn't offer Award tickets through KLM? (they do for AirFrance)

Delta reps are useless.

If someone has input to how i can book the AMS layover with miles, i would be grateful.

otherwise i'll just book a paid El-Al flight...(i should've listened to you guys and not transferred the 50k AMEX MR to delta....) If I am paying, i'd like to fly with a bit of comfort

thanks all

Just Shmooze / A Favor

I signed up for Amex Plat in hopes of a 50k bonus points for spending 1,000 in the first year. Now they are telling me to fax them the emailed solicitation that I supposedly received. I did it online, and found the cached page from Google. In support of this, does anyone have an email they received from American Express to sign up for platinum and receive 50,000 points? May you please forward it to me? I will change necessary values so your email address doesnt come up when i fax it in. Please post if you have the email and I will pm you my email address.

I thank you for your help

Up In The Air / Member benefits change at United-Continental
« on: October 07, 2010, 02:41:30 AM »
As you are all aware, it looks like this United-Continental merger is starting to settle in. I just came across a few articles stating: "Frequent flying passengers have been told they will no longer be able to transfer American Express Membership Rewards miles into the OnePass account with Continental.

And AmEx Platinum and Centurion cards will no longer gain entry into Continentalís airport lounges.

American Express has said it regrets the new restrictions, but it had been unable to come to an agreement with the new airline bosses. "


2 quick personal questions:

I will be flying via Delta, LGA-BNA. Which CC will yield the most miles on this purchase, Delta Gold or Amex Plat?

Also, I will be flying Virgin America JFK-SFO. Which frequent flier program should I plug in? Virgin Atlantic (which I got a free one year Silver Upgrade, thanks to DD, which expires soon, and dont even know of the perks) or Virgin America (which i just signed up for)

Credit Cards / Amex plat VS SPG CC
« on: August 30, 2010, 12:40:35 PM »
With Amex Plat, one receives an upgrade to SPG Gold. If i dont forsee me reaching SPG Plat anytime in the near future, is it worth cancelling my Starwood CC in lieu of the Amex Plat?

Does Starwood Amex offer anything Amex Plat doesnt?
