Any suggestions on where to eat dinner during a 3.5 hour layover in JFK? The problem is we’re flying out of T1 (Aeroflot) which has no obvious good options. We have time to go to any terminal but...

Hidden city with multiple airlines

I'm booked YVR-SEA-ICN-SEA-YVR, even though I live in Seattle, because the fare dropped by $700 when I added the YVR legs (instead of flying just SEA-ICN-SEA). That makes it worthwhile to go to the...

Same flight # on WN but 2 segments in air at once

I had an interesting experience yesterday on Southwest. I flew WN3125 on the 5th (and final) leg of its DTW-DEN-SFO-LAX-SLC-SEA run. When I saw that the 2nd and 3rd legs were running about 2 hours...

TPE airport (Taiwan Taoyuan) restaurant tip wanted

What's the best place for a Chinese (presumably Taiwanese!) dinner in TPE airport? I have a layover from 5:20-11:00pm (flying RGN-TPE-SEA). It doesn't sound worth rushing downtown for a quick dinner,...

Strange requirement for stopover

Anyone ever see this before?

I want to go SEA-BKK-SEA on DL using AS miles. For a 10/30 departure (the only date they have in my window), they offer me SEA-PDX on AS and then PDX-NRT-BKK on DL. So...
