How could this be worse then "matana al mnas l'hachzer"?
By matana al mnas lhachzir, both sides know this, and therefore at the time of the mitzva it is yours because the original owner makes it yours even though he knows thAT it's not going to be so in some time. However here this a case of what the buyer thinks which is NOT in accord with the thoughts of the seller, the validity of the sale is in question, and if the sale isn't valid the esrog is definitely not the property of the buyer, hence esrog hagozel/hashaul.

A recession is when you your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose your job. A recovery is when Nancy Pelosi loses her job.
If I'm not mistaken that line comes from Ronald Reagan, with jimmy carter in Nancy Pelosi's place.

drink a lot of water on the flight.
try to sleep according to the time of your destination while in flight, if this minimizes your sleep time it will probably work better because then the next night (on the ground) you will be even more tired and will be able to go to sleep at a normal time for that time zone. BTW just did it and it worked great.

well i still have a possibility of partner airlines, which leaves me with the question of availability. and there is another thing that delta has which is called pay with miles. so either way i still have a question of transferring miles (points.com or if anybody knows anything about transferring through a non-airline loyaltyprogram).

1 ways are usually Full Coach tkts = alot more then what a roundtrip tkt would cost you!
I understand that was part of the cost effectiveness equation.

Im Not picking on You Im trying to help You but you seem to not have a proper Understanding how things work with these programs.
You're right, i'm really sorry if i come off as unappreciative, i really appreciate all the help and information i've been given.

a 1 way isnt 1/2 the price of a r/t it has its own Fares and Rules and hardly ever on an Intl tkt will be any where near 1/2 the price of a r/t tkt and more likely alot more then a r/t tkt

 You really will need to rethink this whole thing. From what i recall CO doesnt allow for an actual cashing in for a 1 way tkt (it might have changed recently) what they do allow is to cash in for say Biz 1 way and Coach the other and thusly pay 1/2 of what each would have been. In the past if you did that you had to pay the full amount for a Biz tkt even thou you were in Biz only  1way. AA actually does allow you to cashin for a real 1 way tkt

 Im correct with CO I just went to their site and clicked 1 way and the ability to select Reward Travel disappears
That's important, thank you very much. This leaves me with delta because unless elal has availabilities that i can't get through AA, they don't have anything for me.

well even if you could move all the miles into 1 acct youd still be way short of what is needed.

When carriers allow transfers between accts its allowed only to the 1000th so 1980 only 1000 miles can be transferred. and you cant combine AA & CO except via pts.com

 as I see it either you pay $$ for a tkt , find a way to get the apx 28000 you will be short on CO. then once you have it all you need to PRAY that theres a Saver tkt available which on CO isnt that common

 Good Luck in your quest
Firstly notice that i mentioned buying miles because as you say i'll be way short.
secondly i know that on continental there is no saver ticket available, which is why i might just be buying one way and getting the second way with miles. BTW this is why i'd like to know how to transfer into other airlines programs, and what the availability on delta is through partner airlines.

None are worthwhile.
None.
Nada.
Zilch.
If i'm not mistaken on the blog a good while back there were posts about issues related to transferring through non-aviation points programs.

I am dealing with miles in definitely 2 possibly (hopefully?)5 people. 1 person has 38,757 miles in continental, and should be getting 2,956 miles in the next few days. I have an aa account which as of now has 2,226 miles, i'm expecting a bit more than a thousand more, but i'm afraid it might not come so easily. the other three might be getting 2,956 miles each soon in their continental accounts, the rep on the phone wasn't sure because they created their accounts after flying.
Obviously i understand that in the end it might come out very cost ineffective, due to all the fees for transferring and buying miles.

BTW do most airlines allow you to buy miles?

IMO youd be better off buying a tkt where you can add some miles to the ones you have so that hopefully in the near future you can cash them in for a free tkt, plus this way you can chose what flights you want on what days.
I'll Repeat, I don't travel that much and worthwhile to me means i get a free ticket now, not the next time i fly.
BTW i am choosing what day i want.

I'll rephrase what does worthwhile mean? I don't travel that much and worthwhile to me means i get a free ticket now, not the next time i fly.
