Up In The Air / Delta Lounge Question
« on: May 08, 2017, 12:22:30 PM »

2 questions:

1) If I have a ticket traveling on Delta from Terminal 2 at JFK, can I go through security at Terminal 4 and use the lounge over there (w/ my amex plat)?

2) if (1) cannot be done. Let's say that I have a ticket from another airline company and that I am able to access security at Terminal 4. Would I be able to get in Delta Sky Club showing my boarding pass from Terminal 2 w/ my amex plat?

Hey, I booked a ELAL Economy ticket with my chase points (redeeming them at 1.5 thru the Chase Sapphire Reserve).
How can I know which class is my ticket? I can't find that online on the elal website....
I'd like to know if it was YSM so that I can buy an upgrade in biz.

Up In The Air / Book 2 Tix under same name - Coach and Business
« on: July 26, 2016, 09:01:30 AM »
I am flying with my family on a Aeroflot from NYC to TLV in a few months in Coach (paid for tickets).
My wife is pregnant and I want to book the return trip in Business class for her using Delta Points (it's about 70k + $350) for the entire TLV -> SVO -> NYC.

Can I book this business class ticket for my wife if she already has a coach reservation? Or do I need to use another name for her, ie: her maiden name?

I just purchased an apt in Israel and I thought about buying a TV here in the USA and bring it to Israel as I got plenty of luggage thanks to Dan's recent business class deal!
Question: Would the TV be compatible in Israel regarding networks / channels etc ?
Anything that I should worry about?

Up In The Air / FB Award for Infant
« on: May 01, 2015, 02:30:46 PM »
I am flying from JFK to TLV on FB for 25,000 FB Miles + $23 taxes (AF Operated by Delta)
Pretty good right?

If I want to add an infant to the reservation, Delta will charge me about $162 for lap.
I would rather add another seat for 25,000 FB Miles + $23 taxes but they will not let me do it and the website says that all infant need to be added over the phone.

I was thinking of canceling the whole trip and placing a new reservation for 2 people directly online by providing the wrong DOB for the infant -
Do you think that I might be able to get away with that?


How long does it take to transfer points from SPG to AA?
I processed the transfer about 14 business days ago (more than 3 weeks ago), I still do not see anything.

I did another transfer to Flying Blue and it got to the account within 3 business days.
