Eh, probably because they donít rely on Schlesinger and donít realize thereís another hechsher. Good luck finding a kashrut as reliable as Zurich in the US.

are all ricolas good or only certain flavors? I was under the impression that only some are good
Itís tricky because not all flavors are available everywhere. For example licorice used to not show up on the French list because the guy in charge didnít update it but it was Kosher. About this particular flavor, I just asked the Rabbi/chemist who makes the Zurich list (there is zero info on whether the other Rabbi actually visits the factory) and he told me that it is a new item there (came to the states and other countries first, see different packaging: https://www.ricola.com/fr-ch/produits/echinacee-miel-citron). He said he hasnít looked into it yet and will let me know in a few weeks. Iíll update.
By the way Iím surprised of the comments regarding the extra sticker on DDMS, wasnít aware that it was a more widely known fact!

Lol, I knew the hechsher question would come up. I am very knowledgeable about hashgacha in Switzerland and hereís what I know. Ricola hard candies are certified by Zurich (Rav Levy, previously Rav Breisch), and all European kosher agencies rely on that. Now another Rabbi, who is not trusted by many put his hechsher on them purely for money and these are sold at a premium.

LOL. Iíve had an aborted landing with Swiss (plane still on runway) and it wasnít the pilotís fault. Flying Air Canada next week Vancouver-Sydney!

It's only 1.25 for me, as I have the CSP in my first free year. I want to fly for a weekend, which I don't see for $160.
Pay cash, save miles for experiences. Unless you can manufacture more than you spend I guess.

Up In The Air / Best option TLV-ZRH?
« on: September 27, 2018, 11:01:26 AM »
Thanks. How about 25k when redeeming Chase UR on Swiss?
I donít know, should be cheaper if you book now. Iíd personally never redeem Chase UR at 1.5cpm. Also Swiss might be a light fare as well, didnít check.

Looking to go for a weekend ex-TLV (nonstop) at some point this fall/winter.

What's the best way to book? Cash? Points?

TIA.
Easy one. Check google flight for Elal or Swiss, they have really good fares, just booked ZRH-TLV round trip in November for $160. Luggage is extra but I only have a carry on. Not worth 25k M&M.

Hi all,

I want to book two business class tickets from TLV to NYC on December 10. I am happy to stop in Europe but would like to avoid Air France. I have not found much else, can anyone help me?

I have points in UR, MR and Marriott currencies.

Thanks!

what's more surprising then NY,NJ not allowing it is that CA has not banned it
LOL they probably banned whatever this is used for!

I did with no problem in California

seems to be an issue to NY or NJ
Yep, maybe something illegal in some states. My bad.
