Is it possible to do any sightseeing with a layover in FCO for 7 hours and 25 minutes with the flight landing at 8:05 AM and the connection departing at 3:30 PM (without risking missing the connection)?

No kids, just 2 adults.

Does anyone know if the AMEX business gold will cover lost bags on an award ticket if the taxes and fees were charged to the card. Fine print says "To be covered, you must pay the entire fare for travel on a Common Carrier (e.g. plane, train, ship, or bus) with your eligible Card. Entire Fare means the cost of the full fare for a Covered Trip on a Common Carrier. You can use your Basic or Additional Card Member's American Express Card, American Express Membership RewardsŪ Points or a combination of both for the entire fare. But if you use another form of payment or frequent flyer miles or points from another program to pay for all or part of the fare, you will not be covered."

We used AMEX SPG points which were transferred.

The rep we called said awards were not covered.

This morning I saw tons of flights from YYZ-TLV on

Now, all availability (for all dates) has been removed. Is this normal? United just keeps telling me that's there's no award space, but it's not true.

Credit Cards / Transferring Balance from one 0% APR card to another- Risky?
« on: February 16, 2015, 03:36:12 PM »
Have I figured out a way to get a 0% APR loan for as long as I want?

Open up 0% APR Card in my name
Spend Money
13 Months Later Open up a card with another bank which offers 0% balance transfer fees (not 0% APR, as both doesn't exist)
Open up another 0% APR Card in my wife's name which has 60 day 0% balance transfer fees and 0% APR
Transfer balance from first card, to 2nd bank and then back to new card in my wife's name

Wala, another 15 months of 0% APR....

Does anyone see an issue with this?

Credit Cards / Balance Transfer Question

When transferring a balance from one card to another (and then back to a third)-
Does anyone know if I can submit the request to pay off the 2nd (using the 3rd) before the amount posts to the 2nd?

I'm trying to avoid the balance sitting on the 2nd card for a week or more until all the requests are processed.

What's the worst case scenario?

Up In The Air / Issues Cancelling BA Avios Tickets Online
« on: October 27, 2013, 03:33:43 PM »
Has anyone else having issues cancelling BA Avios award tickets (booked on AA) online? I keep getting:

"Unfortunately our systems are not responding, so we are unable to process your request at the moment."

I've tried on multiple computers, browsers, countries and on different days. I have 4 bookings all giving me the same issue. They all have an infant on them. Called BA online support- no help.

Any ideas. I can't afford to pay $40/person over the phone.

Anyone have any experience short checking bags domestically with UA? For example JFK-CLE-MIA and asking them to check to CLE. What if someone wanted to give the bag to a friend in CLE for some reason?

General Discussion / Twitter Feed for Sizzling Deals- on
« on: September 01, 2013, 10:33:06 AM »
Would anyone have an interest in a twitter feed (or some other mechanism) which would only include deals above a specific hotness level (i.e. sizzling)? I don't want to get emails/texts for deals which I can browse on a daily basis, but deals which will be dead within an hour and are very hot I want to get notified right away. Any other interest?

« on: July 09, 2013, 11:36:19 AM »
What's the official term for two close airports where a connection can be made without it being considered two different awards (like JFK&LGA)?
And, does anyone know if TXL and SXF qualify?

« on: May 08, 2013, 01:37:47 PM »
I booked a ticket on AA to fly on ELAL. I can't fly now. How long do I have to use the ticket? From what date is it calculated- the booking date or the departure date?

Up In The Air / Changing from Stopover to Non-stop with infant ticket
« on: August 09, 2012, 11:59:40 AM »
If I change a flight with a connection to  a non-stop (flying on UA) is my infant ticket still valid?

Up In The Air / Carry on dimensions- what are the real limits?
« on: August 08, 2012, 10:31:30 AM »
Official limits are usually:
22 inches tall, no wider than 14 inches, and no deeper than 9 inches.

Anyone know what the real limits are? I bought a 24 inch tall bag - should be good, right?
