The food is not that important to me -- I don't get excited about it when I am in D1. I usually travel with some "emergency rations" -- usually for those times I wake up at 3am local time and my body...

I seem to be called for "random" ID checks at LAX about 50%of the time (had six in a row for at one time), which always caused a delay because I didn't have my ID out and handy. Now I do have it...

I don't know if you are looking for a boom mic but I can answer/make calls with my Sony WH-1000XM3. I think most of the Bose do as well (my wired QC-25 could).

Just a heads up -- the final product is much bigger and heavier than the one shown in the video. I've yet to use it on a trip, but I am disappointed on the size.

I've called twice and gotten the same "it can not be done" but haven't pushed it. I am a little hesitant because even if they do it they (TMO) says it is not supported and I don't want to be in East...
