I couldn't listen with sound right now, but the visuals sure makes it seem like the traveler will see and do lots of island activities. In reality, though, the traveler will see lots of time on a plane. :)

Amazing!

Too bad you're gonna have to go alone... since, well, you know, you went back in time and undid my 20,000th post, McFly.

So AJK nixed this itinerary as he said DD is now to be known as DL for retroactive change to the elite qualifying post count, or because there weren't enough segments for the buck (new itin has 14 segments), or maybe it was because apparently he actually works for a living  (this seems the most unplausible of the 3).  At any rate...different travel dates and now we've got this mess.

Sunday:
UA1040 CLE-EWR 6:04am-7:31am, 73G First

UA15 EWR-HNL 9:10am-2:15pm, 764 Business

I can't figure out what DL stands for. Did the dates/cost change?

That return is a nightmare.

Should the connection in ORD read 5 hours? At least then you'd have time to go to Shallot's and Milt's

No earlier flight ROR-GUM so you could get to a hotel in GUM?

Lol

Option #4: I nixed the old itinerary because when people see *this* trip and look at me like I have three heads and ask me, "What the FUK, dude?" I'll be able to say, "precisely."

I can't figure out what DL stands for. Did the dates/cost change?

Delta.

Yes/no.
