If anyone is looking for discounts at waj pm with dates
How much discount are we speaking, basically I might be interested in the cheapest rate you can get for a shabbat sometime between now and October.

Booked pesach (2nd yontif), sukkot is gone at least for any 1 or 2 nights :-(
Would recommend booking now if you bought points.

Never heard of that and don't see that config on Tap's plane.
Should be in theory at least:

The pics are a good start, but the main problem i've seen in LA is other people messing with the parking.

For example: There are locations where there are a bunch of scooters parked together, one person unlocks one, mistakenly knocks over the rest, and just drives off. Or, a person parks it on the edge of the sidewalk, someone else comes along and mistakenly knocks it over onto the sidewalk.
I hear, there needs to be more thinking into this, I have actually seen multiple scooters in the garbage! apparently some people (maybe an Israeli thing) if they find the scooter in a place they deem inappropriate, i.e. in the middle of the sidewalk, they simply throw them out.

And the reason they don't show availability when adding and 3rd person is because the rooms are incredibly small and cant accommodate a 3rd person so you should call the hotel to inquire about the infant.
I get that I have stayed there multiple times, I just feel like (maybe unjustifiably), if the infant is not taking up any significant amount of space (sleeps with parents, or in small space) and does not eat, why then is it the hotels concern if they are present?

Anyone fly TAP lately, most interested in the LIS-TLV segment on the new A321LR's with the supposed Jetblue setup...

It's actually pretty successful in Tel Aviv where I work. For Bird there are certain "no parking zones" which does not allow you to end the ride at certain locations, in addition for both Lime and Bird you need to take a picture of where you parked so that you are held accountable if you obstruct the sidewalk (no idea who checks the pics or what happens)

Pro tip for train: if you are coming with suitcases or just want to save 5 minutes sit in the last car which is the closest to the one elevator. You can know this if you are facing the train the the last car will be the car farthest to your left. Chag Sameach!
so sorry it's the farthest to the right if you are facing the train. Also take note that the door that opens is the opposite side from the one you come into so you should not pile your suitcases there, people are not too happy about that...

Anyone been there on Sukkos and know the sukkah situation?
Unrelated: has anyone come with an infant and had any issues? (if you put anymore then 2 guests they show no availability)

So not sure if this is the poster above or not but I was just helping someone with a bunch of bags on the way to the airport, he was bringing a "challah knife" turns out it was more like an ornamental knife hard to claim it resembled a challa knife anyways the guy was held up for a while and not sure what happened(I had to catch my train), my suggestion to anyone bringing a knife is to take the bus from a stop outside the bus station so you dont go through security,  at the very least you will be held up which is quite upsetting before a flight.

The bus is good. The thing is that it runs only once an hour and is dependent on traffic conditions (obviously not an issue at late/early hours). Also I would say the train is slightly more accessible.
