Up In The Air / Unusual Flights
« on: August 09, 2015, 02:12:19 PM »
United has 2 extra flights from EWR to TLV today (Aug 9 15), UA2068 and UA2069, with no seats available for sale.

Does anyone know what those flights are?

On a related note, UA84 (EWR to TLV) was cancelled today (Aug 9 15).

Citi has changed the rules regarding car rental insurance, when using the Citi AAdvantage credit card or the Citi Platinum Select (and probably for other cards as well. If you know about other Citi cards, please let us all know).

1) Citi car rental insurance is worldwide, and does NOT exclude Israel.

2) Insurance is the USA is secondary (if you already have another insurance. If you don't have insurance, e.g. if you don't own a car, it'll be primary).

Many more improvements to the card benefits. See it on this guide. Kudos to Citi for making such a nice guide, in "plain English".

  • NEW! Trip Delay Protection
  • NEW! Baggage Delay Protection
  • IMPROVED! Trip Cancellation & Interruption Protection
  • IMPROVED! Citi Price Rewind (60 days)
  • IMPROVED! Damage & Theft Purchase Protection
  • IMPROVED! Extended Warranty
