. Otherwise he should stay back as well and then his bags will stay too
could you clarify this? Is this another option, or what would happen in an alternate reality?
will the gate staff give me flak for not showing up with my whole party?

I want to book lax jfk with AA miles. Lax jfk is 12.5 but lax jfk phl is 6k. Can my wife and kids get off in jfk, while I stay in and collect all of our bags in phl?

Looking to do similar but a week later. And for some reason I'm thinking that it's better to fly direct there and stop off in Europe on the way back.
Any advice is much appreciated.
Most flights going east are overnight, you will prob ne tired hitting the ground in Europe, especially with kids
You'll prob be fresher on the way back

There a place on Bar Ilan/Shmuel Hanavi on the same side side right next to Zol Food store.
Have you used them?

Seems like I will probably just cancel and rebook on my own,  figuring out the options. Probably cheaper this way.
Why is it cheaper? You don't pay to be rebooked due to flight cancellation

I just added 4-AU's the phone reps disclosure had a new line about me or au downgrading or cancelling avvount within 12 months. Is this new? Never been an issue before...

I'm looking to book a trip to Israel in the summer (around August 11-19) and would like to have a full day in either London or Paris on way there, and fly nonstop on way back. Longest stopover I've found so far is about 5 hours before needing to book as a multi-city. Obviously, I want to pay a roundtrip fare.

Any advice on how to get a nice long stopover on this route?

TIA.
Search on matrix with minconnect
Chase has also given me some nice 12-23 hr stop over opportunities through their UR site

I know this will get flak from team safety, but can you book an infant a seat and not bring a car seat on board (just hold by take off and landing/turbulence)?

with united you always pay 10% of the ticket value...
American is not alone on this one. I believe several other airlines have the same policy
