Up In The Air / Re: Cancelled flight from Tel Aviv with a twist

Based on what you say, you are entitled to compensation.
Many airlines try to get out of paying and use a million different excuses to do so.
Often you have to sue them in small claims or regular court to get your money.
Unfortunately, Israeli courts don't seem to believe in punitive damages so the airlines use what is know as "שיטת מצליח" where they deny everyone and hope that most people won't put up a fight.

29,000 Miles, so with the 25% bonus would need to transfer 24k MR points. The Austiran flight is 42.5k United Miles.
How much are the taxes/fuel charges on each?

Need to cancel an award I booked 2 hours ago.
Any data points on weather they allow 24 hour free cancellation?

Actually these airlines are coming up as direct flights on numerous dates w/o a stopover. Anyone know if this is a new thing
Could be a code-share but most likely you just don't understand what you see.

Amazon & Walmart Deals / Re: Free Amazon shipping to Israel

Keep it under $75 to avoid import tax
Beware that if you send a few packages close together, they may still charge you so it is best to wait a few days in between.

I find that Skyscanner shows most of the small charter flights ex-TLV including those that don't show on the normal OTA's.

Up In The Air / Re: United Mileage Plus

Will be flying UA EWR-TLV in February, 2 adults and 4 kids.
Is there a way to accumulate all the miles in 1 account? It will not do me much good to have the miles in 6 accounts. Not a frequent travelor. I did book the tickets on 3 separate reservations. 1 thru Amex travel, 2 thru Chase travel, and the rest with a TA. Not sure if this matters

I did some research and it doesn't look UA has mileage family accounts. Any other program I can credit it to that allows family pooling?

PM sent.

Can you do baan chang elephant park and tiger kingdom in the same day in chaing mai?
When we were there, we got a driver to drive us all day for about $20 which included gas and everything.
We went to a whole bunch of places (Snakes, Crocs, Tigers, etc') and had the driver wait for us outside while we went inside. He had a chart with all the animal pictures, we pointed to which animals we wanted to see and he took us there.
