95,00 a night - i know i missed the devaluation - cost me 130,000 amex converted into hilton

130,000 amex for hotel
230,000 amex for emirates
120,000 aa for cathay pacific

Three nights at Conrad in March should be 285,000 (or 228,000 if using 5th night free).

So how does 130,000 MR (which only equals 195,000 MR at 1:1.5) get you three nights?

did you bring any food ?

has anyone flown emirates before ?

Last time we went we brought food, a burner, meal mart meals, etc.

Flying them in F in a few weeks, but I don't know much about their business aside from it being lie-flat on the A380, but not the 777.

how was tlv-ist-mle
Great. We got lucky and had the A-330 (newer biz seats) on all 4 legs, not just the IST-MLE legs.

Please refrain from further posting unless it is a TR (even short) from MLE. K, thanks.
I'll give you a face to face TR if you meet me at Coffee Bean.
You pay.

I booked it in January for the July flights.
Don't forget to add in a free one-way if you're not doing a stopover.

Where to? Doesn't it have to be in the same region, so even to Europe would raise the fare.

I brought tons of food and tefilin and had no issue. They did open my bags at customs and asked my if the grape juice I brought in contained alcohol that's where the search ended.
