Goods For Sale/Trade / Looking to trade a night at the waldorf on Pesach
« on: November 25, 2018, 02:26:07 PM »
So I have a night on chol hamoed at the waldorf, gold account. I have stayed there in the past and don't have much interest. Looking for a trade (in Israel), maybe 2 nights in a lesser hotel or a night somewhere comparable.
Right now reward nights are only available for 313K or $732.
PM with offers

Up In The Air / Re: El al flight arriving close to Shabbos - again

IIRC it was stated earlier it has to be 4 hours but I could be wrong.
I see you are  right, for International flights it's 4 hours. Although with Elal we never really know if it will be International....
It still may have been 4 hours for some of the people boarding at least.

Nobody was forced to board that flight. The tarmac delay was within the legal limit.
What makes you say that? the boarding was at 8 something and the flight only took off at 11:45pm that means it exceeded 3 hours.

Up In The Air / Re: Business and First Class Products Master Thread

Booked IB J MAD-TLV This is what seatguru claims the product is as well as CS said it's a 332.
I'm unable to choose seats online so I can't see for myself, but the CSR said that the seats are C1, A2 etc... like the 333 is configured. CSR was extremely confused whether it is a lie flat or not.
Any way to double check this?
It's not lie flat it's like domestic first, nice big seats but little recline.

Assume 5 - 10 minutes from landing to gate.  After that, it will depend on (a) how long it takes you to get off the plane (2-5 minutes for 1st/Bus; up to 10/15 minutes for others); how long it takes you to walk to passport control (you could jog it in 3-4 minutes but a leisurely walk is 5-10 minutes; how long the line is at passport (0-60 minutes based on my experience - no way, rhyme or reason to predict   IF YOU HAVE ISRAELI PASSPORT, YOU CAN USE THE BIOMETRIC MACHINES, IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE AND CUT THAT TO 2 MINUTES); and waiting for bags.  Recently I have found them to be on the belt by 15/20 minutes post landing.  Of course, if border control or customs has an issue, they can always hold you up indefinitely.
So...best scenario you may be out in less than half an hour but usually closer to an hour or more.
Just my experience.
If he has biometric there are a set of four machines very early about 2 minutes before the ramp down to passport control. Use that there is never a line, you get the slip and walk right through takes 30 seconds.

Does this do anything for renting cars in Israel?
