The QC20i have unbelievable noise reduction. If I could get custom ear molds like I had for my Etymotics, they may be the ideal noise suppression solution.

I loved the sound of my Etymotic HF5 and even had the custom ear molds made which were super comfy. Unfortunately the cable started to short out after only a year or so.

What model of camera does he have now?

Remember, Moore's law applies to digital photography. The new model of his camera will perform much better, be smaller and lighter, and cost less.

I am a side sleeper, so prefer in-ear headphones to the Bose "cans". I went with the custom-molded inserts for Etymotic headphones.

Global Entry is awesome - especially since UA paid for it!

You are correct, I forgot to double the miles, but the rest of it is right on to my experience. I fly IAH-MXP several times a year.

I disagree - with a 1 hour express train ride into town and back, you need a LONG layover to make it worth it.

I agree KL is a fantastic city, though. Just a shame the airport is so far out of town

Last time I checked, you could not exchange miles directly for cash. So, you can only compare the cost of the upgrade versus the ticket you could get for the same miles...

If you go to Vienna, you should stop by Bratislava on the way back. For 2 national capitols only 50 km apart, they may as well be on different planets. Amazing the difference communism had on...

Yes, I am familiar with how the upgrade process works.

Was I not clear that I just need to find out which fare class I'm buying from Turkish to ensure it is Y or B?

SIN - free guided bus tour leaves from the airport and brings you back.

That said, the airport is so nice I wouldn't be inclined to leave for 4 hours.
