Re: Maldives Master Thread Some hotels like the St Regis provide sunscreen and mosquito protection, but its always recommended to bring your own.

Wine is not permitted to enter the Maldives. While I was in the airport the guy in front of me had a bottle and they simply confiscated it, his pleading did not help. The serious consequences reported, usually dont happen, I believe.

The costumes authority tags bags suspected of violating import rules with a red sticker before baggage pick up. After the baggage pick up there is a barricade you'll walk through, if they see the red sticker they'll scan that piece of luggage ONLY. Assuming you know how to remove a sticker easily it shouldn't be a big deal, but be aware those stickers have many cuts, so they get hard to remove and they put on more then one per peice of luggage.

While not recommending it, I'm explaining how this can be done.

The St Regis provided me with a champagne bottle for a special occasion and had them change it for a bottle of kosher Herzog wine.

Re: United award flights
Quality of Airline which is better. I have flight EWR - Vienna - TLV on Austrian Air business class. I could change it to Lufthansa, is it worthwhile?
I flew Lufthansa B, I can attest @ 6' my  feet had almot no room to move when fully flat. From pics of Austrian B it looks like they are a bit more roomy.

Hotel: African Pride 15 on Orange Hotel, Autograph Collection
Year of incident: 2018
Status at time of incident: PPE
Incident: I had a week stay with a Marriott 7 night cert. Hotel had scheduled construction for public areas.  They sent out an email stating construction will not start before 1030am. On 5/7 days there was noise from 7am+. The hotel repeatedly said "TOMORROW NO NOISE". They admitted fault saying that the construction company wants to be on schedule. They are now asking me what sort of compensation I want, in terms of points (I rejected a future stay). This is a CAT 4 hotel.
Compensation: What should I accept and ask for?

Re: What Is The Greatest Travel Hack You Did? Showed up late to DL award domestic flight, had wine bottles wrapped in sram rap. DL instructed that it might not make it onto the plane. The system let them put it thru. Obviously was delayed, TSA opened it up and as a result baggage wasn't there upon arrival. Went to DL baggage claim desk , they said theyll bring it to me the following day and a 3hr drive. Upon requesting a kit she told me the system reads they shouldn't even dilever it to me because I checked so late, I said thank you and ran out.

A week later I made a claim with DL for delayed luggage and received somewhere around 800 on a 34k award.

Re: What Do You Do For Kosher Food While Traveling?
Travelling to The Maldives in a couple of weeks starting my food prep, need some recommendations.

Who has the best frozen travel meals in NY NJ  ( Im reading a lot of mixed reviews on Pom and there seems to b missing some stuff from the menu)?

Aprox how many meals fit into the 48 can Polar Bear Cooler/suitcase?

What kind of Converter/inverter/adapter do i need if i want to bring a SV and small crock-pot?

TIA
I recently used poms and they were not that tasty

Poms, I think 6-7 with some extra room. Those coolers are pretty small.

They have International/ multi use adapters and they provide adapters as well, upon request.

Re: Hyatt Awards And Upgrades Master Thread
Hello all, pretty new to these forums but I was curious if it is possible to selll Brand Explorer nights or the night you earn when getting to Explorist status, the same way people are selling SUN's and Anniversary nights? All 3 types (Anniversary/Brand/Explorist) are up to Cat 4 to my knowledge. Also do people normally just use paypal to exchange the value of the night? Thanks for the help.
Yes that's what this forum is about.

Usally some1 will use PP or QP for payment and you'll confirm booking. There are  people that only deal with users that have a presence on these forums for credibility issues.

Re: Marriott Hotels
If booking with the free night certificates for immediate family, can I just make the reservation in their name, or does it have to be under my name and add them to reservation?

Also, if using 3 certificates and paying with points for 4th night, do I still get the 5th night free?

Thanks.
Best is to add them.

U should get 5th night free

Re: Vote on the new NY State Licence Plate
Interestingly 3 is modern vs all the others which are classic. It's the only one that depicts something that is distinctively from this millenium (none of the bridges constructed prior to this millenium were designed like that).

I thought of voting 3, but found 4 to be the most classical and my choice.
Agreed, Plate 4 represents something people know about NY and not some bridge some one dedicated in his own honor.

Re: Random airline-questions.
A relative of mine is flying AF YYZ-CDG-TLV with a 15-hr stopover in CDH and AF says on their website and by phone that they can't return a stroller for the stopover (even gate checked).

Any idea of how they can get their stroller back for their stopover? Thanks.
Is it an overnight stop?

Re: Time sensative question- FLight to Israel
OP is touching a point which I know a "friend" that tried it with a certain airlines point program twice, and got his points back. I however advise against it as it's blatant fraud. I don't however think this can be done with revenue bookings. Not worth being in "Lucky's" shoes for such a long time.

I did notice another interesting thing. Aeroplan now allows cancelation within 24 hours. Cancel button disappears once checked in.
It works, but why do it? It's not like they in error forgot to deduct the points.

If it happens once unintentionally, .... ok, but  continously doing it, seriously?

Re: Airline Compensation Master Thread
(Kept it to the minimal, because) they told me before it wouldn't be covered, and even if they wouldn't have said it was covered I couldn't trust them.

 I am not sure why you trust airlines by their word. They have rules and regulations they must adhere to, they have signed [UAE] the Montreal Convention and are responsible as per its rules.

 You lost out on some $$$$, and that's 4 didgets.

Do not disturb was on.

Was a 6 night stay. Tropical climate with outdoor shower connected to the bathroom & doors to a pool outside.

I emailed the manager again saying he can do a lot better based on what I paid. Letís see what happens.
Agree he should, depending on how dramatic you play the walk in.

If say, some1 were to have a 10 night stay and there was an incident, I would not expect the hotel to reimburse in full. But if it were a 3 night stay, I see some room for argument....

Re: Marriott Certs Sale
any way to avoid 3rd person fee (child)?

once you factor in parking, extra person fee, wifi, resort fee etc.... its tempting to not waste my points (50k/night on avg) and just use Airbnb instead.

tried to do a booking last night for HI and was shocked that I was getting hit with near an extra $100/night in add-ons.
If there is a couch why disclose the 3rd person and why dont you just park off site, if that's possible.

I'm not cheap, but have done it many times, parked smack in front of hotel, faster then garage parking and didn't pay 50 for the convenience of parking 3 stories underground and walking up.
