Up In The Air / Re: Customs @ EWR
« on: July 04, 2018, 08:03:55 PM »
Arriving Sunday midday into EWR via Porter airlines, if I give my self an hour to clear customs to catch an Amtrak is that cutting it too close?

You might consider  taking a later train from Newark Penn, a few minutes via Uber. The schedule from ewr is sparse but every Northeast stops in Newark.

Ask?

After a long hold and special consideration they offered the QC 35 for $220. Not sure which series.

So it's a discounted price but wasn't really planning on spending so much. I guess an advantage is that it would come with a warranty and doubled with cc.

Still debating...

Will try to ask Bose again

re the wire, I tried, but the wire is really flimsy and the space is small, so couldn't do it.

What does Bose wants for a QC35 replacement?

They didnt offer and I didnt ask, I just thought that since QC 15 is discontinued  they are offering this instead.

A lot of people say its a design flaw to put the wire in that place where its going to wear out.

the 25 now goes for $199 on amazon, so it's just a little discount rather than replacement.

Have a set of QC  15 that are/were great, but the light won't come on anymore and it doesn't work. Did some fiddling and research and is probably related to the wire that is on the battery door, opening and closing many times, it wears out. Seems to be a known problem.

Bose will replace with a QC 25 for $135.

Is that my best bet or any other suggestions?

Thanks OP! Let's see if it ships.

Thanks OP, ordered.

I have old orders of other OOS items sitting for many months, doesnt look like I will ever get them, do they offer some compensation?

What about on two cabin international flights, that have economy and business?

For UA states

United Airlines (UA)   I   Saver award: Business cabin on 3 cabin flights, First class on domestic 2 cabin flights

So will not find anything on the EWR-TLV route I guess

Why only 3 cabin?

Anything at Polaris ewr? One would think there's enough demand and clout to get something besides oranges.

Was told by UA that there are presealed kosher food options available.

Anyone know what it is?
