re: Upgrading Air - tccdc
Which airline are you flying? I know we always say it depends, but that is the truth. For example on a flight on United two weeks ago, for 900 dollars I could have upgraded to business class from economy, but that takes into account fare bought when purchased. A lot of the European airlines g...

re: 2016-2017 Season long ski thread. All are welcome. - tccdc
Small report....got back to DC this past weekend from Mayrhofen, Austria which was terrific. The setup and the choices for runs were just terrific. With the dollar being strong, it was actually quite cheap in my opinion. If you love Munich, imagine most of the apres ski as German Disco or Ger...

re: Regarding jet lag (MSY -> Europe), better to arrive in the morning or afternoon? - tccdc
[quote]Can you even arrive in Europe in the afternoon/evening? General rule is travel east overnight, sleep as much as you can on the plane, power through that first day.[/quote] Yes, I used to do a lot of work in London, and United for example has flights that leave early in the morning, so you ...

[quote]Leave MSY in the evening and try to sleep on the plane. Arrive in the morning in Europe and enjoy your day. Even if you don't sleep much on the plane, just try to power through. If you fall asleep when you get to the room you can go ahead and scratch that day off the itinerary [/quote] ...

re: Ireland May 2017- Updated Itinerary - tccdc
The Westin is nice....but if I am spending money, I like the Merrion or the Morrison. The Merrion is a classic Dublin hotel, that is right near St. Stephens green. The Morrison is across the Liffey, but walking distance to everything. If you are not looking to spend a lot of $$$, I sometime...

[quote]Saw the Shelbourne. Really debating it vs. the Westin Dublin. Since SPG and Marriott merged I can use either.[/quote] There is no debate..the Shelbourne has history and great (but expensive) bar used by locals. The Irish Rugby team stays there before games if that gives you an idea....

re: Ireland May 2017- Updated Itinerary - tccdc
As a Marriott guy, if possible, use your points and stay at the Shelbourne in Dublin, which is near Upper Baggot street and some of the more famous non-touristy pubs (Toners, Foleys) in Dublin. There is a great restaurant near there called Matt the Thresher that always has great fresh oysters. I...
