Couldn't take the Metro from Aeropuerto Barajas into Madrid this morning (5-Mar), signs show it being out of service.

Taxi to/from central Madrid is flat 30Ä each way. I didn't check for a bus.

Have just under 3 hrs T4 to T6 (all airside), wondering if there's decent lunchtime dining in T4 or should I just hoof it to T6 and grab a bite before retiring to the AS Board Room (I'm a AC member).

Aa: Aus-lax-nrt-lax-dfw-lgw-rdu-aus $1200

$1200 for 23,201 EQM

Wasn't really a true MR as I did spend a few days in Tokyo, Kyoto, SoCal and London.

Upgrades to business class exceeded the airfare but really added to the trip.
