And for those who don't know, this is a recent thing that CO can simply take more miles out of your account if you want to change service, as opposed to cx'ing and re-issuing. I think it started March 15th of this year.
Nice!
Haven't redeemed any CO miles this year-good to know!

Well I'm sitting now in the FCT, about to be whisked to my plane in a Porsche, after having a gourmet First Class Lufthansa Kosher meal here in the terminal. Everything so far was amazing. It's funny because the agent in the airport told me that the lounge by gate b22 is "the same thing" as the FCT, although I doubt he has ever been here before.

So I feel bad that I didn't check out the B22 lounge because the agents in the FCT actually told me over there is BIGGER and they have a SPA! I don't know if there is a complimentary restaurant like in the FCT (although that wouldn't interest too many of us) and the main thing is that from there you don't get driven to the plane ;)

Trip Report will be forthcoming. I already wrote it (plenty of time on each flight) but I need to upload pictures and set it up properly. It's a busy week but hopefully sometime in the near future.

So Ashton Kutcher sat in front of us on the way from FRA to TLV on Thursday. I didn't bother him the whole flight but we got a pic on the way out.

Just thought I'd mention that.

shame I didn't have that email 2 weeks ago...I tried the TLV one but they refused to get me meals because I wasnt flying out of TLV. Terible service. I tried a few other emails but ended up with no kosher meals at the lounge...oh well, not sure if its worth "disputing" on a partner airline miles ticket...

Neh, he didn't book with miles. He paid full fare. I figured it wasn't a good time to remind him he could've saved half his money...

I was wondering too why he flew through FRA. Maybe he was in ORD and flew ORD-FRA-TLV. He must've been in a place that didn't have direct flights.

I just googled Ashton kutcher israel and it seems he was here for a Kabbalah center birthday party. He visited the kosel and stayed at the david citadel.

It also says he was accompanied by Demi moore's daughter but I was on that plane and there was NO ONE sitting next to him. Maybe she flew coach ;)

Food in the middle of the night you can eat, and if you dint bring your own food, you can tack the ksml-breakfast along.

Business lounges in FRA, have no kosher.
