Up In The Air / Jetblue Flight Disaster Compensation
« on: August 22, 2011, 03:09:55 PM »
Flight was delayed multiple times, and then they lost the entire flights luggage once landed in NYC.  Just insanity.  Want to request compensation for issues.

Who's the best department to contact at Jetblue?
Better through email or phone?

On The Road / Car Rental Fort Lauderdale
« on: April 15, 2011, 12:31:53 PM »
I'm looking all over for a minivan rental for 1 week 4/17 - 4/24.
I'd prefer from FLL but anywhere in Ft Lauderdale area is fine...
Cheapest I can find is $800ish from hotwire??? ( I checked hotwire, priceline, kayak, expedia)
Is there anything I'm missing here.

EDIT: then i checked chabad @ enterprise and found $476!!
Is that the best Im gonna do...still seems high for one week!

Destination Guides And Trip Planning / 4 days this week
« on: February 27, 2011, 04:22:59 PM »
My sister and bro-in-law want to take a 3-4 day trip any days this week (mon-fri) and keep costs under $1000 (airfare (or not)/hotel/food...leaving from NYC)
Any suggestions with kosher restaurant/minyan...

They have at least 50k amex miles and starwood miles avaiable but prefer to hold onto em and spend cash... (plus i have AA/AMEX/CO/Starwood that i would be willing to subsidize)

They were thinking 1 night on the way down to DC, theyd stop in philly and do a category 4 c+p somewhere in philly, and then 2 nights in DC at Park Hyatt  (but hotel is booked and FFNs are hard to come by). 

I couldnt think of anything great on late notice.
Any thoughts on a sub-$1000 4 day trip.  (C+P ideal) ???

« on: February 02, 2011, 04:21:11 PM »
If my sister is turning 25 on the 6th day of a 23 day car rental...will she get slammed with fees?

Up In The Air / Post Pesach Flight Issue
« on: December 29, 2010, 12:47:30 AM »
I'm looking at flights back from program Hyatt Regency Bonaventure FLL to NYC post pesach (4/26/11).  Y"T ends 8:35 PM (lekula) and I have 2 flight options (must be that night).  Either...
1. Jetblue 9:25 PM FLL-EWR
2. AA 9:55 PM MIA-JFK

I will not be traveling with family (ie alone) and wont take anything but carry-on.  Still tight, even with possible online check in (not sure if that even works in alotted time w/ AA or Jetblue)
Its 18 miles from Hyatt to FLL and likely (fastest route) its 36 miles from Hyatt to MIA.
It is valuable to leave later from a farther airport? 

Whats my better choice? Is there a better flight I'm missing (must be that night)?  Will I be able to check in and board based on times above?  We've all had these kinds of motzei shabbos/Y"T flights, whats the best play?
