General Discussion / Paypal or Google Wallet?

I need a way to transfer money from the US to someone in Israel every once in a while. Can either google wallet or paypal be connected to an Israeli bank account?

Up In The Air / US Airways LGA-PHL-TLV

Has anyone ever flown to Israel from NY this way? It seems it would be easier to not have to go through customs in JFK or EWR on the way back. Also, you wouldn't have to stop somewhere in Europe and would just have to go on the short flight from PHL-LGA.

Tech Talk / Best per-day cellphone plan in the US?

I know T-Mobile has a $2 a day plan with 2G web. Any others out there that only charge when the sim is activated? I need it when I fly back from TLV and am in town for a month or so each time.

Up In The Air / BA Avios vs. AA Miles? Which to use?
« on: August 12, 2013, 03:45:19 PM »
Hi everyone-

I am wondering whether it is better for me to accumulate miles in BA or AA for travel on all the oneworld airlines. I know that the Star Alliance is the best program but the oneworld usually has better fares to/from TLV. Should I build up miles on BA or AA when flying on oneworld partners? What are the advantages/disadvantages of either one. Don't only look at it from the perspective of flying to Israel, also which is better to fly domestically in the US once I earn enough miles.
(I just flew from TLV through Milan and used my AA number and have a flight reserved to fly back to TLV through London with BA and then LY from LHR-TLV.)
