This looks amazing. What is the cost of the hotel with room and board? The website doesnt have prices at the moment.

Booked a round trip to Europe with miles, and called to  add infant they are charging me over $200.
Even though the ticket price is about $900 (so 10% would be $90).
Anyone with experience?
you are lucky its not more!
Yes it stings though. I usually put AA on hold and call to find out infant fare beforehand. Or book with BA and infant is 10% of miles!

The glacier or the town? Glacier is close enough to FTE.

Of course,  I put the wrong one in for the marble caves....not close to FTE at all.
From The falls to FTE requires 2 flights, and from the FTE airport right to the glacier is about 1-1.5 hours.
If you head to the glacier consider trekking (which requires you to be in town by 8:30am) or kayaking near the glaciers. There is a boat every 1-2 hours in the summer that goes to one part of the glacier, but I didnt find the boat ride particularly spectacular.

Why specifically Punta Arenas and not Ushuaia?
Patagonia near Punta Arenas is "nicer" than Ushuaia.

I wouldnt have felt comfortable over shabbos in Once with wife and kids. We were there on Friday, was very nice to see everyone getting ready for shabbos.

Hi All!
Visiting BA end of january with wife and 3 children incl. baby 1.5 years. 
Looking for a decent to upscale hotel for shabbat very close walking distance to the Jewish community.
We normally enjoy spending shabbes with chabad around the world but since this is a large jewish community would really love to experience shabbes with the community/ shuls.
Just read thru all of the posts in this thread after 2015 (plus 15 more pages scattered) and can not find anything up to date. Any help is much appreciated!
I was just there. Chabad with PH is very nice. But 15 min walk, and not sure what your deal with a stroller would be and no eruv (if this is a factor for you).
PH was just ok imho, but extremely convenient and beautiful neighborhood.

I did seychellese and mauritius
Seychelles are a little nicer and more laid back (not so much to do)
Mauritius has alot of activities and is much bigger
I did seychelles only with wife and mauritius with our kids
Would i repeat seychelles- prob not, to expensive for what we paid, maldives much nicer
Mauritius with kids, any day. alot to do, nice beaches, you can rent a villa for good price and a amazing chabad shliach is a great help
do they have kosher food on Maritius?
I went to Seychelles, didnt find it so expensive, but yes, limited activities. If you go to the Hilton, its a great value and they treat diamonds well. And then a day trip to La Digue cant be missed.

I dont think we have one because almost everyone on here prefers to make a $ where he/she can.
But its VERY nice of you to give this away!

What is better JFK-LHR-TLV VS upper class
Or JFK-ZRH-TLV Swiss business?
The length of flight and times also make a difference to me if i want to sleep.
I think LX is comfy and havent had issue- only 6"1 though
Also the movenpick ice cream in the lounge is the deal-breaker
