I've spoken to my lawyer. I will not take this lying down.
Does your lawyer also say that I can presume if they didnít contact me that they will be honoring their contract with me? I want to book loads of nonrefundable expenses

The issue with rain and subpar weather isn't out of fear of being wet.

The issue, rather, is that cloudy, rainy, non-ideal weather zaps the color from the entire backdrop -- as though someone pulled the plug out of the socket -- rendering MLE as though it were Atlantic Beach.  Shame to travel so far when you could just walked the needle-ridden beach of NYC.
Itís often sunny in the summer as well. But itís likely to pour at some point in your stay. Sometimes tropical clouds make for even better scenery (Iíll post a USM picture as an example), but of course any sane person would prefer cloudless to mostly cloudy.

Can go to many more places other than MLE in real F -- places not in the height of their rainy season, or as expensive, or as far.  But if MLE works, by all means.

Make sure to take a seaplane as well too, though . The contrast makes the f seem so much better.

For some people, the seaplane is just as cool as F.

So then you get the cool factor but also appreciate the comfort of the F more. Double benefit.

For me one of the main reasons going to MLE is the flights. DW and I have flown many times in what I call "fake F" so it will ne nice to fly "real F". As far as fun in the sun, I have done that so many times I can't remember.
Neither EY or QR give anything close to a real F experience.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I am going to guess these are nothing like the seaplanes in Canada. Where they fly just above the tree tops to a deserted island (and I mean deserted). There you get dropped off to fish weeks on end. Now that is fun in the sun.  :)

So what would you include in a "real F experience?" Just SQ, CX and EK?
