re: Upgrading Air - Furbs311
Just assuming because you're going to AMS you might be flying delta. I fly through there a lot for work, most of the time in business class. But if I was doing a personal honeymoon type trip, I wouldn't do it. First, it's going to be expensive if you don't have points to spend -- that's money I'...

re: Any OT ballers ever fly in the Concorde? - Furbs311
I have a customer that use to travel on it a lot. Said not only was it small, it was also incredibly loud inside. But the short flight time made up for it ...

re: May need help from a Delta member on here - Furbs311
Definitely do it, it's super easy. You should see some MP signs as you walk up to customs, just follow them. As soon as you land, fill out the questions and generate the QR code. Just have that up on your phone and flash it to the attendant directing people into different lines. They will send you r...

re: May need help from a Delta member on here - Furbs311
I NEVER go through CDG anymore. Between Air France strikes and that crappy airport, there's always issues. For the record, I've done Aeroflot before and it was actually really nice, at least internationally. I'm actually in Moscow now headed back to the states tomorrow morning but taking KLM to ...

re: Going on a pretty amazing trip to BVIs-Update Page 2 - Furbs311
Is the Falcon owned or chartered? If your friend owns it, have him give me a call when he wants to upgrade from a French POS with three baby engines :lol: Just kidding.. looks like a heck of a trip!...

re: Russian tourist Visa question - Furbs311
I'm headed to Moscow tomorrow for work, which will be the 5th time since last July. I did the multi-year through g3visas.com. It's a bit pricey but they handled every aspect and it was seemless. I had an invite letter from a work contact, but G3 can write your letter if needed. ...

re: Questions about TSA Pre-Check - Furbs311
Somewhat off topic, but I've found Mobile Passport to be even faster than Global Entry (if the airport has it). Answer the questions on the app when you land, generate the QR code, and walk right through. No kiosks. ETA: and its free ...

Moscow - Furbs311
Headed back to Moscow next week for work for what will be the 5th time since last July. I typically have a day to myself and feel like I've done all the touristy stuff (basically Red Square and surrounding, subway stations, etc). Anyone have any other suggestions?...

re: Why do commercial airliners throttle back at 10 to 12 thousand feet? - Furbs311
Correct -- 250 kts below 10k feet. Also the typical hand off from departure/local tower to center (controllers for large portions of airspace). Lots of departure clearances will only clear to 10k and tell the pilot to contact center at that point. Thus the speed riduction. FWIW, most pilots don't li...

re: Atlantic City Recs - Furbs311
Use to spend a lot of time in AC and came here to post this, White House is a must. I suggest taking a cab.. walked from Ceasars one time.. AC is not the nicest of towns :lol: If the weather is nice, walking around the pier/boardwalk is OK. Usually a decent rotation of shows at the casinos. T...

re: O-T aviators, recommend me a basic airplane - Furbs311
[quote]Having everyone climb through that one wing door sucks. [/quote] During PP training in the 172, my instructor showed me how to use the doors for lateral control if the rudder cable snapped. Can't do that in a Piper :lol:...

re: O-T aviators, recommend me a basic airplane - Furbs311
You can't go wrong with either for a starter. I have a couple hundred hours in both. Did my private in a 172, IFR and non-complex part of the commercial ratings in the piper. Personally, I feel like the 172 is a better handling aircraft but the Cherokee is more forgiving in maneuvers, especially sta...

re: Is gobal entry worth $100 if I'm only flying twice a year - Furbs311
I travel internationally a lot for work and have never gotten GE. With status through delta I get pre check randomly and use priority lines when I don't. I've been using mobile passport a lot when clearing customs and often times I beat the GE folks. That said, my employer has arranged for TSA to co...

re: More Sleep vs. CRJ 200 - Furbs311
I always pick the shortest travel day, so if you get there at the same time, go with the later flight. With delta I don't worry to much about the upgrade, especially on CRJs. The over head bins blow and I end up having to gate check my carry on which is a pain. ...
