For train travel on Amtrak in the US: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/amtr...t-rewards-399/

For European train travel:
https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/euro...il-travel-654/

For other countries, the appropriate destination forum

It depends. Sometimes the Amtrak forum when Amtrak is involved. Sometimes in the European Rail Travel forum, when European rail travel is involved. Sometimes the European and other train travel is in a region-focused airline forum. And sometimes it's in destination/country/regional forums on FT. And sometimes its scattered elsewhere in the forum when there is an airline/airport connection of some sort involved.

If you are looking for the FT equivalent for international train travel, not sure what that would be.

Hi, You can get every possible information regarding Travel Insurance on different platforms. The most reliable source for me was investopedia(.)com. This source was very helpful for me. Thanks!

How to fly a specific aircraft?

Are there any easy tools to help find routes specific aircraft fly? For example, I still haven't flown the Airbus A380 and searching through booking details is tedious.

Many thanks in advance!

Welcome to FlyerTalk!

ITA Matrix software offers a useful filter. You will find tips on this thread: Upper Deck Flight Routes in One World Airlines

Specifically for the A380, only a handful of airlines operate it so it should be easy to narrow down if you have an approximate route in mind.

Google Flights also usually shows aircraft in the search results. Keep in mind that aircraft can change from time to time due to operational requirements.

Flights Edinburgh to Dublin

Sorry I couldn’t find where to post this or how to start a new thread to ask a question.
i need to book a flight Edinburg to Dublin for the end of July, one way. It seems my only options are Ryanair or Aer Lingus. I have not had positive experiences with Ryanair due to the lack of Customer service support. But Aer Lingus flights are by ATR turbo props which I’m not so fond of.
Any suggestions, please? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Perhaps the UK forum would be useful. each of those airlines also has fora if you have questions. But at the end of the day, you'll have to make a choice based on which of your personal preferences outweighs the other. It's a short flight.

Hi Adam,
Thank you so much for answering.
yes, my choices very limited, either go with the company that I’ve dealt with before very unhappily, or just get on the turboprop.
i think that either ticket would be nonrefundable.
