-Service at the Park Hyatt Buenos Aires was somewhat inconsistent. We were not addressed by name as consistently as we were at international Park Hyatt locations. The vast majority of the employees at the hotel were awesome and very friendly. English is spoken by all very well. However there are a handful of employees that made for some unpleasantness that I have never experienced at an international Park Hyatt before.

Wow had sale fares from the US to Tel Aviv for as little as $220 round-trip, making them one of the cheapest options to Israel. As an ultra-low-cost carrier, they work better for some than others. If you can hop on a plane and don’t need a lot of luggage, don’t need a specific seat, and are OK if you wind up delayed overnight in Iceland then it’s fantastic. If that’s not how you travel, then the model becomes less attractive. … [Read more...] about Wow Air Will Resume Flying To Israel In June
