Up In The Air / United boarding groups
« on: September 06, 2020, 02:23:48 PM »
Not sure if this is permanent or not but on my two United flights last week they did not use the boarding groups printed on the boarding passes at all.  They boarded the planes by rows starting from the back.  (No separate boarding for basic economy).

For me it was annoying as I am used to boarding in group 2 and not worrying about overhead space.

Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Cool ice rink. TWA at JFK
« on: November 14, 2019, 11:21:07 AM »

Lace up and speed skate over to JFK — our frozen tarmac awaits!

Freeze all plans! The TWA Hotel will open the Runway Rink — a one-of-a-kind ice skating experience — on November 30. Visitors and guests can take a spin on the tarmac around the hotel's 1958 Lockheed Constellation Connie airplane (now a cocktail lounge) and then watch an ice skating spectacular! The custom 56-by-44-foot Runway Rink (made with good old frozen NYC tap water) will operate seven days a week through the end of February.

There’s lutz to love beyond lacing up: A snow-stopping skating show will take spectators on an Arctic expedition without leaving New York City’s tundra. The show's theme takes inspiration from our Connie’s history: after retiring from TWA, tail number N8083H spent time as an Alaskan bush plane dropping supplies in the Prudhoe Bay!

The forecast also calls for frosty beers, Sno-Caps candy and an array of other snacks and beverages. Those looking to warm up can wrap themselves in The TWA Shop's cozy new winter accessories — including knit hats and scarves — which will be sold both at the rink and online.

Admission is $15; $10 for kids under 12. Ice skates can be rented for $10 (kids under 12 rent for $8). Skating aids for children are available.


The Runway Rink

Monday through Thursday from 4 PM to 9 PM

Friday from 4 PM to 10 PM

Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM to 10 PM

Tech Talk / Basic voicemail only number
« on: February 22, 2018, 02:08:29 PM »
Anyone have a recommendation for a friend of mine that wants to set up a voicemail only account?  Not looking for email related services.  This is for someone that does not even have or want to have  a cellphone. Just needs a number where people can leave him messages and he can call in to retrieve them. Hopefully for a very low monthly fee.

One thing I did when I was an avel (and am trying to continue) is leave my cellphone at home or in my car.  I found that I davened better.  - even if the cellphone is totally turned off if it was in my pocket it was a distraction.  I figured if I am going to daven for the amud for 11 months, let me at least try to daven like a mentsh.

Just Shmooze / Pesach 2016 in St George Utah
« on: April 29, 2015, 04:51:35 PM »
I am considering doing a trip to St George Utah for Pesach next year (if moshiach does not come).  We would be there for the week before as well that would give us enough time to get a taste of some of the beautiful sights in that area.

There are a lot of logistics that i will need to work out.  There is no minyan, minimal kosher food, illegal to bring in wine (need to do a special order through the state store!) etc...

however, the area is really beautiful and is centrally located to Zion, Bryce & Grand Canyon.  The weather during the second half of April is gorgeous and they don't get much rain.  It is 2 hours from Vegas, but i would probably still bring (ship) almost everything from NY.

There are some nice houses for rent that would have room for all of us and i am hoping that we will have enough family to have a minyan.  If not, maybe we will find another family that wants to do the same trip and rent a house within walking distance (prob 15-20 minutes).

I know pesach is a year away but there is a lot to figure out here so if anyone has done something like this in the past, please let me know - i can use any tips you have.

Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Fantastic trip idea - Virginia
« on: August 07, 2014, 09:36:19 AM »
For those looking for an affordable trip idea from NYC ( or south of NYC).  The four points in Richmond va is a starwoods category one hotel.  (You can try to get upgraded to their two bedroom suite!).  We stayed last night and it was perfectly fine.

TODAY only August 7 you can buy $30 tix to kings dominion that is 25 minutes away. Those tickets are good for any day from August 9 to  August 24.   You are also 45 minutes from Busch gardens and all the Williamsburg attractions.

Up In The Air / Free suitcase on American for 14 year old
« on: July 04, 2014, 10:07:19 AM »
My son is going out of town to yeshiva next year.  He will probably fly back and forth on American Airlines about 10 times. Is there anyway for him to get a free suitcase - I don't think he can get the aa credit card because he is under 18. He will fly using ba miles most of the time as it is short haul.
