Is Des Lynam as good as the other bloke?

Does Carol still do the conundrum?

I'm planning on 20 days back to San Fransisco / LA, not booked yet.

 

That sounds interesting! I also want to have a visit LA too. But just a plain plan for now. :rolleyes:

Isn't Des dead? or on some sex charge from 1962?

As I obviously have nothing else to do, I spent a whopping 45 seconds checking my flight to see how much it would cost me if I booked it today rather than a few months ago.

 

Result - it's 9000 yen more expensive to book it now.

The ticket I bought for my wife last week to join me in Canada during obon is 80,000¥ more expensive now. Quite the increase in one week and super happy I didn't wait any longer. My ticket, a direct flight to Canada at the end of July was 200,000¥. A bit more than I wanted to spend but paying the extra money to avoid having to transfer in America is worth it.

Yeah transfers that add a ton of time are awful.

I did that once - it adding 10 hours to my journey - I decided it was better to pay a bit more...

The added time can be bad but having to go through America is worse under pretty much any circumstance. I can't believe some of the people they have working at the airports in the states... Pretty much the worst of the worst and a shame that this is the first contact you have with America when you arrive.

US airports are truly abysmal and an embarrassment to the country.

I can't understand why any non-American would want to fly there for a vacation anymore.

Same sadly applies to UK, specifically Heathrow.

Totally.....when asked how long she was staying, she said 3 months, when they asked me I'd said a few months....that was the discrepancy in our story.....the tourist visa allows her to stay 6 months!! WTF?!? I was livid
