On The Road / Ride with Via NYC
« on: February 02, 2015, 01:12:18 PM »
for what its worth just came across this company and took my first ride this morning. called Ride with Via and seems to be in direct competition with uBer pool/Lyft Line (think sheirut). all rides are $5 and are SUV vehicles. as of now the coverage area is very limited but works well for the people that work in manhattan or are there during the day. operates weekdays between 6:45am-9pm anywhere between 32nd st and 110th st. spoke to the driver and he said he gets paid an hourly rate and has never actually had more than one person in the taxi at one time. compared to my experience with uber pool and lyft ride, my driver came in under 5 min no one else got picked up during my ride making it a very cheap taxi ride.

General Discussion / Can anyone reccommend a travel garment bag?
« on: September 10, 2014, 02:36:42 AM »
Going to be flying multiple times for the yomim tovim. Usually I just use a plastic Macy's suit bag, but wanted to see if anyone could recommend a wheeled carry-on garment bag to purchase. I've looked at a couple, including travel pro, delsey, travelers choice, they just seem all the same. Was hoping an experienced business flyer could chime in. Looking to spend no more than $175-$200.


(Mods: I tried searching for combinations of 'garment bag', 'suit bag' and 'travel' and nothing came up)

Just Shmooze / Sports Handicapping
« on: November 14, 2013, 08:28:51 AM »
there was a topic about Survivor football pools a while ago. id figured we should start one for individual games. (to determine whether there is a halachic issue ask YLOR, as well as difference between investing in stock market and sports handicapping). Anyway i'll get it started with a pick for tonight:

IND -2.5 against Tennessee.

To/from anywhere in Jerusalem to TLV airport, flat rate of 175 shekels.
24 hours a day
Call 054.955.4719 or PM to reserve now.

General Discussion / forum layout question
« on: December 03, 2012, 05:24:16 PM »
Is it possible to view all pages of a thread on one web page? i find it annoying to have to keep clicking next page and makes reading the thread that much longer (and prob leads to multiple postings since people are too lazy to click through and read every comment.)

Looking to capitalize on the alitalia deal, is there anyway to book a ticket on their website and/or over the phone that includes an extended layover in rome, i.e. 1 week?

Up In The Air / what is a good value for redeeming miles/flights
« on: November 23, 2011, 01:11:47 PM »
Please excuse my ignorance but I was wondering how much people look to redeem their miles for in reward travel.  For instance, I found a flight for $1100 or I could book it for 80,000 miles.  Is this a good rate? I would appreciate it if someone could share their insights with me so I can have this information for the future.  Thank you!

hey all,

i booked tickets to both paris and copenhagen for 7 days each. i've been reading the paris master thread but i coulnd't find anything on copenhagen.  both pretty much have same rates to israel, and i haven't been to either of them (or europe for that matter). going to spend prob 3-4 days in israel anbd the rest in europe. which one has more access(i.e. rail or bus) to other countries.  just would like some thoughts as to which city is more kedai to go to.  thanks
