Is the Conrad of HH offering any compensation for the mental harm they caused you?

Three more nights in a suite. So that I can see them get robbed again.

No, thanks.

BTW, you have not lived until you have tried (and succeded) to order a delivery from a kosher pizza place in a foreign country, with foreign currency, in a different language *using google translate on your PC to speak for you* LOL.

Wow, what an experience. I hope the salmon, mac n cheese, fries, and pizza make it to the hotel.

"What, you didn't want the salmon, pasta and fries as toppings on the pizza? Shoot, you probably didn't want us to pour the soda all over the pizza either."

Is zika a concern?

B6 even more space seats have got to be one of the best consistently available mileage deals in the game.

600 or 700 B6 vs. $55 = 7.9 to 9.2 cpp, and that's before 10% (or more) rebate, equaling 8.7 to 10.2 cpp.

No reason to waste points on it when they'll always give them to you for free at the airport (also as Mosaic)

That's what I do when I personally fly, but in this case it's not me flying ;)

Considering that other airlines offer this for free with status, the value is somewhat watered down IMO.

its such a minute amount why risk it when you can confirm at booking? Especially if traveling with a family

You see it if selecting seats while logged in as a mosaic member.

Would I be crazy to fly JFK-HKG-TLV on CX F/J, (stop in HGK,) then fly TLV-AMM-AUH-NRT, (assorted J/F) stop in NRT for a few days, continue on to HNL/OGG, and finish the trip with a $180 Y ticket?
