Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Ergel 2019 summer trip planning
« on: October 21, 2018, 02:40:46 AM »
Looking at MLE + another destination for next summer

Option 1:
TLV-HKG Monday in CX J (currently available)
2.5 days in HKG
HKG-MLE on Thursday afternoon on CX J (currently available)
Overnight Thursday in MLE
5 nights W MLE in OWB
Return to Israel? There is one away available on air India J with a day stopover in DEL (anything to do there). Can book a second seat using CSR points, seems like a paid fare is 1200 or 80K points, not too bad. Or wait to see if TK J opens up.

Option 2:
TLV-MLE on  TK J on Tuesday
Wednesday-Monday in W MLE OWB
MLE-??? on Monday Tuesday-Thursday in wherever that is.
I don't see any availability for HKG-TLV. Does something typically open up? I see SIN-TLV connecting in India available, but that's not ideal. Any other thoughts about where to go?
Or just stick with the first option despite the overnight in MLE?

Anyone have a service they use and are happy with? Ideally I'd like to have my salary direct deposited into some bank account and have the money converted and sent to me in Israel.
I was using world first but they just realized that I live in Israel and they are not licensed here (?)
Appreciate any help.

Anyone see the NY Post article about the Satmar couple?
While I don't doubt things like that are happening, I do doubt that the couple is real. Why would they talk to the Post?

« on: November 18, 2016, 03:50:24 AM »
I booked an air Canada flight lax-yyz for this Sunday back in September. Apparently, the flight never ticketed and I didn't realize until tonight. No one was willing to confirm me now on that flight, instead insisting I book a united flight (through ORD)
