Amazing pics!

Which side of the plane do you recommend sitting on to BOB?
What resort did you fly over in that pic?
left side in.
right side out
and that is obviously the Conrad. No other resort is positioned like that

I will be in Sydney with my family or 1.5 days at the end of January.
We are 2 adults and 3 kids.
Is it worth renting a car?
Any suggestions for how to mazimize the short time that we have there?
Anyone do the opera house tour with kids?

Been there twice, don't think you really need more than that to see the main sights. I also don't think you need a car.
Take the train from the airport downtown. And check into a hotel there. From there you can easily Uber, take the Ferries or even public trans to the kosher food and everything else is downtown

Lol I'll see you there. Let's hope for the  best with the front desk. Who did you deal with it?
On plane home.  Sarah was the only good person.  Upgraded me to superior suite for free

Which hotel you guys recommend. any of the Intercontinentals, Le Meridian, or The Palace?

Currently at the palace.  Beautiful and comfortable.  But totally lacking good service at the front desk.  The rest of the staff is nice.  Front desk is below most Hampton inn and suites

Thanks all. I decided to go ahead and renew. Seemed not worth the risk considering cost of the honeymoon and the fact that i'd have to do it anyway. NY Passport agency was quite painless. I can pick it up on Tuesday and be on my way!
you owe us a TR now

Hello all,

This is my first post - have been an avid reader but now I have a question of my own.

I'm set to fly Etihad next week on my honeymoon. I will be visiting Sri Lanka and the Seychelles. I have 2 full passport pages left, and the State Dept website says that each country needs 1 page. So in theory I am covered.

However, I do get a sense that:
a) I cannot rely on check-in staff to be up to date on these page requirements
b) Etihad has mixed customer service... not sure how open a gate agent or anyone else would be to a conversation on this point.

Do I need to be getting a new passport? It would have to be an in-person expedited agency situation. Which is fine. But to go through that I just want to get a sense of whether anyone has seen this issue before.

For context, I am flying both legs in Business, with the JFK-AUH legs on Etihad and the AUH-CMB legs on Sri Lankan.

To be clear, my concern is that Etihad staff will deny me boarding in New York. I am not so concerned about getting entry to Sri Lanka or the Seychelles (or maybe I should be?)

Thank you,
Last minute passport places are great and worth doing because you will need a new one soon anyway
