Try Sylvan Enterprises, they're based in Monsey. I've ordered many custom products from them in the past, and have had very good experiences with them in terms of both price and service.

so if I put in my aa number I will only get miles for the auh-jnb route? What about the jfk-auh route anyway of getting miles for that flight?

That's what this (http://www.aa.com/i18n/AAdvantage/earnMiles/travel/airlines/etihad.jsp) seems to say.

Relatively yes. Some are much nicer than others.
The one at LGA I found to be a step above the others

The one at LGA was nice, but I didn't find it to be significantly nicer than many of the others that I've stayed at. The room felt a bit tighter than others (typical for a hotel in NYC) but the rooftop with the pool and workout room was nice. Overall on par.

I have 2 upcoming flights.  I primarily fly AA so I would like to credit the miles to that airline.  One flight to DEL and one is to JNB.  I would like to know how many miles each of these flights would give me if I credited them to AA.  Also would I get any elite qualifying miles for this trip?

I am new at this and appreciate all your help!

JFK to CDG   EY 3315 Operated by AMERICAN AIRLINES
CDG to AUH   EY 38
AUH to JNB   EY 604    
JNB to AUH     EY 603 
AUH to JFK   EY 101

Original
LGA to ORD   EY 3151 Operated by AMERICAN AIRLINES
ORD to AUH   EY 150
AUH to DEL   EY 224
DEL to AUH     EY 223
AUH to JFK    EY 103

Changed to:
JFK to AUH     EY 102
AUH to DEL     EY 224
DEL to AUH     EY 223
AUH to JFK     EY 103

Without knowing your fare classes, I believe that if crediting to AA, at best you would receive miles for the JFK-CDG, CDG-AUH, AUH-JNB, JNB-AUH and AUH-DEL, DEL-AUH flights.

The new Hyatt places have been well designed.

Aren't all Hyatt Places relatively the same?

My uncle climbed it, and actually met his wife through that trip! He says it was one of the most incredible things he has ever experienced.

What's the general thought on travel insurance - Always get? Never get? Only for certain countries/circumstances? I'm curious in what the board's thoughts are on this...

Any one have any thoughts on necessary vaccinations/pills for travel to South Africa (incl. Kruger), and Vic Falls?

Looking here (http://www.passporthealthusa.com) they say that Hep A, Heb B, Typhoid and Yellow Fever vaccines are all musts. Is that being ridiculously over-cautious? Or is that really what people do?

Read ddms occasionally ?

Daily, and get the texts. I've been out of the loop for about a week and catching up though.

Uber and SPG have joined forces to allow you to earn a starpoint for every $ spent with Uber. Details here: http://blog.uber.com/spg

ETA: I see this is also discussed here: http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=50092
