all depends in the security lines, Iíve waited close to 2 hours in busy season.

+1, that happened to me, we begged the TSA worker to let us go on the business class security line in order to make our flight. I wonít make that mistake again.

What's minimum connection time needed in HKG? Picking up bags and then flying business.

You're going to have to clarify, doesn't sound like you want to hear the actual MCT which is an hour.

how is Ethiopian airlines in general (to jnb if it makes a difference)? and their biz seat in particular (a350-900 787-8 & 737-800)?
would you say that the problems that caused the crash are theirs or boeing's?

Quick Q - sending my two oldest on a flight next week - ages 17 and 15. The 17 year old has his drivers license - what ID (if any) does the 15-year-old need in order to fly?

If it is a domestic flight, neither need ID. Airline policy may differ if they're traveling alone, but I personally don't think they'll need any ID.

How do you clear TSA without an ID?

Usually when I fly with them, they clear on my ID, that's why I am asking.

If you are under 18 you aren't required to have ID to fly.

My brother flies to yeshiva regularly, and doesn't have any ID. You should be fine, especially if the older one has ID (if they try to say he's over 18)

ANA multiple legs, and 1 leg isn't available in J. If you wait list that leg, and it doesn't become available what happens?
They cancel or bump you to economy?

Nothing gets ticketed until it clears.

16 year old and 8 year old siblings flying together; would airline make us pay an unaccompanied minor fee for 8 year old?
