Still 7.5k. Don't forget the $100 in taxes, though. Valuing BA at .9 CPP, that's basically the same price as cash on AA and DL ($135+$100 vs $238). For some reason, B6 happens to be a good point value to BDA (3.7k each way, which is over 1.85 CPP).
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I didn't pay that much in taxes when I went if I'm not mistaken.

Taxes are departing BDA. Did you book return flight revenue?

We did as well, and nobody checked our bags.
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

given the fact that you cant rent a car in Bermuda and youre reliant on either buses or taxi or motorcycle rental, nearestescape is not the best bet with kids, aside from the fact that its just one not very large bedroom. I would suggest either a hotel on a central bus route or an easily accessible vacation rental. this was a bit off the beaten path

How about Rosewood Tucker's Point?

Looks like the newest and nicest place in BDA. Anyone?

How's the weather forecast in in Bermuda? Reliable, or like Hawaii where it doesn't matter?

In our 6 days there, it rained once for a few hours and it was pretty heavy.  Even on the days that it does rain, it's like NYC in the summer, a passing storm; there will be sun before and after

The Fairmont Southampton says they have kosher packaged meals from Meal Mart and Monarch Cuisine. Does anyone know anything about Monarch Cuisine and who provides its kashrus? Also has anyone had the meals- are they any good?

Does anyone have a TR for Bermuda?

Looking into going around Thansgiving weekend with wife & baby. Obviously I know I'd need to bring kosher meals. Is that a big hassle with customs?

What activities are there to do?
