Flying Out of JFK Terminal 4

I just noticed my departing flight JFK-DUB tonight, DL 92, shows it going out of "Terminal 4, Gate 22B".
Learn something every day, I've never been on a Delta flight at JFK that wasn't at Terminal...

I'm really not sure what you're expecting Delta to provide for you. I think we're only getting a portion of the story here, since there is a "case number" referenced I can take a stab at what...

I see available flights in June to SAN from PTY on various random dates. Did they used to have a PTY-SAN non stop, is that what you're not seeing any longer?

No, that "is" the Club Lounge. An amenity for those who pay for it (or get an upgrade). The LV Hilton doesn't have an Executive Lounge for HHonors elite members. They just have the VIP check-in area.

It really depends on what your plans are. If you're HH Diamond you're already covered for breakfast with the free buffets, anything on offer in the lounge isn't likely to compete with that....

I think it's a bit of a stretch to say it was "age discrimination" versus " the SC agent made a mistake". Yes, you should contact Delta so they can educate her so she doesn't make the mistake again....

I noticed a huge difference in the number of machines between two visits I made in 2010 (or maybe it was 2009). Anyway, a staff member told me the difference was in the gaming license; the LV Hilton...

Hmmmm...JFK, in the summer. Might be a possibility that once they lost their departure slot due to the lav issue, that it turned into an ATC issue of not having a slot available at JFK.

You don't have to deal with the hotel at all. Just report it to your credit card issuer as an unauthorized charge. They'll deal with the merchant.

I'm sad to see it go because I don't go to Las Vegas for the Strip and excitement anymore. I'm a video poker player when I go to Las Vegas. The LV Hilton has some good paytables. I can make a weekend...

I didn't say there aren't nicer properties in the Hilton chain. I'd take the Conrad in Dublin over the Kilmainham Hilton in a heartbeat, for example. But didn't want to pay their rates.

I've also...

I just had a stay there last week and enjoyed the property. The bottle of water, fwiw, was not "tap water" but instead was sparkling water. Unless they take tap water and inject it with gas or...

Certainly the areas to the east of Jeff Davis Highway (Route 1) are deserted at that time of night, the "office canyons". But the area of Crystal City with most of the hotels is actually pretty...

Actually, one stop away. While it's pretty unlikely you will be the victim of a crime during a 3 minute Metro trip, I'd probably go for the taxi just for the convenience. You might wait a few minutes...
