Doesn't show u can bring meat AFAIK

Just doesn't show u can
Well, if it's not prohibited or restricted, then why can't you bring?

It doesn't say that you can bring underwear either.

True, but just saying to verify it in advance so you don't have issues

When are you headed out there?

How does IC Thalasso work? Every day they release availability for the day that is 365 days ahead? Is there a set time of day they do that?

But right now, for example, you don't see space on 4/29/16 or 4/30/16 so at what point did those dates get released and snatched up? Midnight you think?

Who said they were ever available? I guess they look ahead within the next couple of weeks and see how full it is and accordingly release availability for awards

Oh, I thought they release X amount of rooms for every day. So no way to predict? What IS Dan's secret??

FYI, The lounge that Air Tahiti Nui uses at LAX is the same as El Al so its loaded with lots of kosher snacks and they usually have kosher wraps and sandwiches in the back that you can get by asking for

Last call, I have a couple of days left to cancel my Le Meridien booking without penalty , does anyone have experience between the le Meridian and the IHG interncontinental thalasso? The Intercontinental would cost me a total of 900 dollars more, but seems to have a notch better rating, help me decide. This is a YOLO decision

"YOLO" is a term that, right or wrong, grants carte blanche and justifies any and all decisions.

YOLO would dictate staying at 4S.
