Back in the day let's say 10 years, how does a random person look for flights when going to learn in Israel?

#1 call every travel agent to see who has the cheapest direct flights to Israel, options usually was Elal or Continental J (business class)or F (first class) was only for wealthy people or people that traveled a lot and was able to upgrade but not for random people. (no DDFrs aren't random people )

#2 see which stopover was the best usually Swiss British Airways or Alitalia had the best options.

But once you enter the DDF world things start to change dramatically.

So let's start with this trip as we all know a direct flight to Israel from NY can only be with LY Elal UA United DL Delta and only LY has F but I don't have to talk about LYs F! And UA and DL have decent J class can't complain. So let's start with my journey to and from Israel.

As the יארצייט of רבי ישיעלע קעריסטירער זי״ע comes out this שבת and we have the merit to make a שלום זכור בו ביום of the יארצייט and a vach nacht and Bris mamish right after the יארצייט I would like to share with you a story.

I have a friend that in the past few years, wanted to take me to Hungary to רבי ישיעלע קעריסטירער זי״ע for the יארצייט, but I always found an excuse not to go, thinking that if Hashem wants he can help me directly,

My friend also waited two to three years for kids, and a year after he was at the grave of רבי ישיעלע he had a baby girl 1 day after the יארצייט.

Around January- February of 2013 my wife and I went through very tough times. The people and doctors that had helped us till then, started lifting their hands in the air and were about to give up! So I decided that I have nothing to lose but gain if take the journey to Hungary to the grave of the holy רבי ישיעלע קעריסטירער.

That year, I had the merit to be שבת in, Toka, a city close to קעריסטירער. Friday afternoon and מוצא שבת I went up to the cemetery and finished the entire Sefer Tehillim. Coming out of the cemetery, we made a L'Chaim and said "Mazel Tov, Mazel Tov you are already a helped one!" Mr L.Y.B. told me that when I come home I should buy a carriage already! I thought that if I bring home a carriage my wife would throw me out with the carriage and all, so I took an envelope, put in $600 and wrote the following:
ערש״ק אחרי קדושים . ט אייר
מוצא יומא דהללולא של הרב הקדוש רבי ישעי בן ר משה זי״ע
Inside, I put a note that this is for a carriage, Bris, or Kiddish.

A year later, Friday night פרשת קדושים, we had the merit to hold our first child after 7 long awaited years!

הודו לשם כי טוב כי לעולם חסדו
חסדי השם כי לא תמני כי לא חלו רחמיו.

Credit Cards / Disputing a charge

Did a favor for someone and let him use my card for a few thousand $$$ but now it doesn't look like he is in a rush to pay, should I or can I dispute the charge if I have to go that direction?

General Discussion / Wow! Is this coincidence? I don't think so.
