Towards the end of the tour you are supposed to walk through the Sistine Chapel, which is halachikly questionable. As I didn’t ask the question I wanted to avoid it, but the guards insisted that you had to exit through the chapel. David called over a manager for us and got rather animated, but in the end they allowed us to bypass and wait to meet up with the end of the tour. … [Read more...] about Trip Notes Rome: Veni, Vidi, Vici In 48 Hours; United Polaris First Class And Polaris Lounge Review

Both planes include United’s Polaris business class service with Saks Fifth Avenue bedding and pillows. Savvy travelers will also request a Saks Fifth Avenue mattress pad, gel cooled pillow, slippers, and pajamas, as those are not proactively offered by flight attendants as there aren’t enough of them for everyone. … [Read more...] about Fly Nonstop In United Business Class From Newark To Tel Aviv For $2,875 Round-Trip After Global Tours Discount!
United flights 84/85 feature the ex-Continental 2-2-2 business class seats on the 772. These seats are definitely less claustrophobic feeling than the newer seats, but they also aren’t as private and don’t feature all-aisle access. Starting 4/1/19 these flights will be on United’s new 787 Dreamliner. … [Read more...] about Fly Nonstop In United Business Class From Newark To Tel Aviv For $3,349 Round-Trip After $750 Global Tours Discount!
I’m going to make a number of comparisons between Singapore and Cathay Pacific first class. On Cathay you don’t have a suite per se but you do get a very comfortable wide seat that is semi-private. Besides for in the very first row in the nose of the Cathay 747 there are no good seats for couples on Cathay that want to see each other during the flight. Contrast that to Singapore suites where the double suites are just perfect for 2 people traveling together. Cathay First has awesome availability and can be booked with partner miles like AA and BA. Singapore Suites can only be booked with Singapore miles with fuel surcharges and it can be very tough to find 2 seats at saver rates. While Cathay First from the US means flying just to Hong Kong on Singapore there are flights to Moscow, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Seoul. … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Singapore A380 Suites And 46 Hours In Paris
-I requested a suite in the older building, but there are only 3 suites in that building and at first they were unable to fulfill the request. No matter though, we were upgraded to a spectacular Park Executive suite that was possibly the most spacious hotel room I’ve ever been in. The room normally sells on their website for $1,100 per night, so not a bad deal for 18,000 points per night (a value of 6.1 cents per point). The room had 2 bathrooms, a vast dining and living room area, an office, a couple of closets, and a huge master bathroom and rain shower and jacuzzi. Not that I don’t have any complaints about the room though. The light switches are seriously poorly conceived. They are too “modern” for practical usage, even their own employees could barely operate them. Also a dozen lights are controlled by a single switch which is highly impractical and switches are not where they ought to be and are quite … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Buenos Aires, Argentina
The weather didn’t cooperate for us in Dubai, but I did enjoy myself in the city. I’m not going to discuss the human rights aspects or politics and clearly you need to be careful not to get in trouble with the law. But as an Orthodox Jew I felt more comfortable in Dubai than I did in many parts of Europe. … [Read more...] about Maldives Trip Notes Part 2: Dubai and Abu Dhabi
