I believe so. If it's really important I can try to ask.

Those were different days. Back then BA was my goto airline for NYC-TLV. Chase/BA was my primary card. YQ probably wasn't invented back then.
It's not important, thanks.

Did they have jets back then?  :P

Not when some family member traveled JNB-TLV (I think it was BA) before I was around.  :P
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Were you able to use miles to fly the Concord?
Of course. I believe QF was the way to go.
Alas before my time. Shame.

So they gave away $10k tickets (with very limited amount of seats) for the regular rates, wow! would never happen these days.

I wasn't even aware of airline partnerships back then. BA Executive Club was used to the max on BA. And DL (which took over PanAm) was maximized on DL.

Huh? Plenty of airlines give away F seats that cost more than Concorde for miles.

Would be interesting if someone could dig up some award charts from those days.

No need for an exemption from DMV a letter from your doctor that you have issues with  too much sunlight should be in the car at all times and you should be ok.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Do you really get ticketed for that? I'm not in NY, but my windows all around (excluding windshield) have a 0% tint, and I've never had an issue with it. Was pulled over last week for speeding and the officer made no mention of it.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

Depends on the officer. But it's not uncommon at all around here
