Thanks scented and Aventine for those suggestions, and it certainly helps that Seoul/Tokyo are two of our favorite cities. I did neglect to mention that I do intend to stay at the hotel as well so...

I've started to use contact lens cases; the right eye case holds enough Proraso for 3 or 4 shaves (I do bring a small travel brush) and the left eye case holds an equivalent amount of aftershave.

I can't speak for everyone else but I can assure you that I will never utter the word "Globalist", it's Diamond and I would bet that hotel staff would rather use that word as well. Discoverists are...

The same thing happened to me on this route as well. As I was connecting in LGA to another destination I just asked to be refunded outright (as a nonstop on Air Canada was more appealing). The BA...
