Success!

Haven't been to Kenya for 5 years, and am flying out tomorrow night. So a couple hours ago, I googled to see what the current visa-on-arrival fee was.

Luckily, one of the first results was...

Yep! Tried to see if KL or DL had something similar, but haven't found it yet. :(

It's a good thing I put that (yet) in there - I've since picked up an itinerary that will see me fly another 21 or 22 thousand miles (yes, I said an itinerary, singular) on a mix of UA, LH and LX. ...

LAX?

Bump

MyETA.biz mentioned upthread doesn't seem to exist any more, and LJR's web site is dead as well. Is AirportAssistance.com (Airport Assistance Worldwide) the way to go now? RML? I don't...

Novice-traveler shepherding service at LAX

I've just booked my mother-in-law on an itinerary to the US, which will involve her flying to AMS, doing AMS-LAX on KLM, presumably clearing immigration and customs at the Bradley terminal, then...

Checked UA.com and called - when Ethiopian still hadn't gotten back to them after 72 hours, they flat-out cancelled it. So now I have a shiny new open-jaw on UA/LX/LH and the remaining short side of...

Is United.com actually doing something right?

I fly around some for a non-profit. We have a flight co-ordinator, who finds the best prices on Orbitz or Expedia (same thing now, I guess) or wherever. However, I used to be the co-ordinator, and...

Oh, this didn't even register with me on Monday and Tuesday, but yeah - straight to the safety vid, or maybe the Barracuda Networks ad replaced Jeff?

I'm sure I'm not the only one here who's surprised at either CRJs or ERJs being elevated to such lofty status. :p

(And I say that having flown on both types, as well as Avros and E-Jets)

No buy-ups, right?

After my last trip, I'm over 42,000 PQM, but only at 2,900 PQD. I didn't have the cash flow for any E+ purchases to pad the balance, and I don't have any more travel scheduled (yet) before the end...

Got the Munoz email (haven't read it yet) just after getting off a 772 where I had a chat with the purser starting with this dialogue:

Nope, still trying to find a tinier violin for accompaniment.





When I flew last weekend, there were teasers for a new safety video (funny again) coming this fall. Not sure exactly when.

Were the handful of 118's the ex-Australian ones, N49xHA's? Those are what come to my mind when you say handful.

I've always found LGA a pain to get to by road, and even though it's "closer to Manhattan" than JFK or EWR, I've preferred the others due to their rail connections. So at first glance, this sounded...

Some things still being moved upstairs

I was through last week and one of the agents said they were still bringing some stuff up. Not sure what. Maybe some decor. Not the fountain. ;) Maybe the printer?

Hmmm.

I think the best shots I have at this are:
PQI-BGR (1991, CO Connection - not sure how long it's been since anybody flew this route)
EWR-BTV (1985, on a 727 - but I know UX is still doing CRJs...
