United has a details drop down like this that you can look at
Thanks. If we go we’d buy last minute on Stub Hub. Marlins game interests me more tbh but staying right down on the beach...good chance we don’t make it out of the hotel pool.
which airline has the best loyalty program in the US?
its not really worth staying loyal to one imo
unless the airport makes that decision for you
They all suck at this point
Assuming you mean major US carriers.
American IMO...if for nothing else than the systemwide upgrades. Delta is he best airline.
Lyrtch right though, not worth trying to do AA in Atlanta but if you have a choice (e.g., Chicago, NYC) Id go American
team Delta but I also don't really have a choice and have flown them 10x all the others
I should clarify my answer is dependent on reaching the top status. I think Exec Plat is better than Delta Diamond but not sure which one has better miles redemptions if that’s the goal
I’m gold with Delta right now - fly out of NYC (LGA mainly, sometimes JFK)
Highly doubt I’ll make it to Diamond, but Platinum is likely this year
Assuming you're not going to get status any, southwest is the best for points
i'm going to hit silver on delta in a month or two and imagine it'll do nothing for me
For what I want, I equally fly United, delta, and American based on who has the best deals for that flight.
It kinda sucks. I wish I could develop a loyalty program to one airline consistently.
Same with Gold. Its pretty consistent with the upgrades, but thats obviously flight dependent.
skyclubs are great and domestically are lots of places
the old former NWA ones are the best, self serve bar
I was silver for one trip and got upgraded to comfort+ on a flight to and from Seattle so not bad
Platinum on Delta. Out of every 10 flights I take I'd say I get comfort + 8 of those and first class 1 of them.
I hate American so much. Never really fly United
I assure you it's more tolerable when it's free
$850 flights to rome in late april from american. good flight schedules. don't know if it will get better than that. May hold out for slightly more leg room
Except that two of my free flights ended up getting delayed so much they were cancelled. American is by far the worst airline I've ever dealt with. .
Sadly, I've only been to 3 (8, 10, 23).
Heading for my first real trip to Denver this weekend for 4 days. Heading to Red Rocks Saturday night for a show, but outside of that nothing else really planned. I will have an SUV so any advice on mountain drives, best lookouts, can't-miss places would be appreciated. Also I think the gf is wanting to do some horseback riding, so if anyone got knowledge on that I would be forever indebted.
It will definitely get better than $850
Yea went back in March and rolled it into a larger Africa trip, was good times thanks for the recs.
Only thing I'd change is 5 days is too long and I wish we didn't have a full moon in the Serengeti.
Depends on what you are looking for and how far you are willing to drive. Rocky Mtn Natl Park has a loop road that has some amazing views and lots of stop off points. But that is about 2 hrs from downtown Denver.
If you are wanting to stay in Denver some of the places we went that were pretty fantastic were:
- Denver Biscuit Company- delicious breakfast
- Sam's No. 3
- Improper City- fun, outside bar --> then walk around this area of town for a number of cool breweries and what not.
- Wynkoop Brewing Co- fun brewery with a fair amount of activities on the top floor
Ours was free.... What does the full moon mean?
Made the night sky too bright and I was hoping for a good view of the stars out there. Don't know what you are referring regarding the free part.
Looking into a new duffel for my weekend work trips. I’m intrigued by a few of the bags made by Herschel, anyone bought/used their duffels?
i went ahead and got them. They were 1200 for the "main cabin extra " which has more leg room , you get to pick your seats, 1 free checked bag, etc.
Nice on the tickets. That's expensive though. Doesn't matter if you got it like that
Just booked 6 nights Hotel Xcaret. What do I need to check out. Haven't been in that region in years (Cancun Cozumel)
I have this Herschel duffle in navy with brown straps. I use it for all my one/two night getaway type trips. I like it, don't love it. Stylishly it's great. My only real issue with it is the top can get a little flat so you sometimes have less room than you think you do because it's tough to zipper when you fill to the brim. I also have size 13 shoes and when I use the shoe bag feature it expands and take up a lot of room. Overall I'd slightly recommend - it's been very durable even if I've had to find myself cutting back on a sweater or jeans when I can't zip it.
That was the first one I was looking at, but I think I landed on this one if I get a Herschel
I'll never go back to a duffel bag for trips through and airport. Wheeled luggage is so much easier.
I still take my overnight bag for trips driving
Just finished the vid for Jasper
Same. My Herschel is really nice for car rides but fuck carrying that thing through the airport.
Leave for Bonaire on Saturday. It's going to be an annoying week. I have to get work sorted/finish next week's work before I can leave (typical), and also get scuba certified.
Will report back, but don't think it'll be a full on write-up when I get back. Going with the same crew that I went to Azores with last year.
Heading to San Antonio for an annual guys trip on Thursday morning. Playing a couple rounds of golf and mainly causing chaos around the resort. However, I have never been to San Antonio so I booked a late flight out. Any things that are can't miss in San Antonio on Sunday? I assume the Alamo but don't know if it's become a tourist trap or not.
Yeah, maybe I misunderstood his question. I use my duffel for all my car trips, but would be a hard pass on it for the airport; wouldn't be able to comfortably carry that and a back pack / work briefcase. Would stick with wheeled luggage or get a large backpack for trips of one night of travel if you want to bypass wheeled luggage.
The Pearl Brewery was pretty cool, cool place to hangout, grab brunch and drinks
He said it was for work, so maybe he drives a lot
Apparently there's a Liberia in Costa Rica...was about to say this is absurd to get to a random country in Africa.

locked down the itinerary for my Scandinavian trip. 2 nights in Copenhagen > fly to Bergen, Norway for a night > train to Flam, Norway for a night, train to Oslo for 2 nights > fly back to Copenhagen for a night. Any recs for things to do in Oslo?
Viking Ship Museum and Vigeland Park
i want to move to copenhagen
Tight. Going with the lady?
What time of year?
You can do most of the Oslo tourist city things in one day as the city isn’t too big. Vigelandsparken, the Opera House, Stortinget (Parliament), the Botanical Gardens, etc.
If you want to do nature stuff you can take the ferry to the islands, hike (take the metro to Sognsvann or Vettakollen), and/or walk up the Akerselva river from the city centre.
1st week of September. Need to book a hotel in Oslo v soon. Recommend any neighborhoods?
The weather should still be nice then so that’ll make it easier.
Most of the hotels seem to be in Sentrum, Aker Brygge, or at Majorstuen and either of those are fine. You won’t be too far away from anything and will be close to the majority of restaurants/bars.
