Walt Mossberg, perhaps the most highly respected technology writer, has written his review of the iPhone 3G, here are some excerpts:
“…There are two big hidden costs to the new iPhone’s faster speed and lower price tag. First, in my tests, the iPhone 3G’s battery was drained much more quickly in a typical day of use than the battery on the original iPhone, due to the higher power demands of 3G networks. This is an especially significant problem because, unlike most other smart phones, the iPhone has a sealed battery that can’t be replaced with a spare.
Second, Apple’s exclusive carrier in the U.S., AT&T Inc. (T), has effectively negated the iPhone’s up-front price cut by jacking up its monthly fee for unlimited data use by $10. Over the course of the two-year contract you must sign to get the lower hardware prices, that adds $240, overwhelming the $200 savings on the phone itself. If you want text messaging, the cost rises further. With the first iPhone, 200 text messages a month came free. Now, 200 messages will cost $5 a month, or another $120 over the two-year contract…
…In daily use, I found the battery indicator on the new 3G model slipping below 20% by early afternoon or midafternoon on some days, and it entirely ran out of juice on one day. I overcame this problem by learning to use Wi-Fi instead of 3G whenever possible, turning down the screen brightness and even turning off 3G altogether, which the phone permits.
The iPhone 3G’s battery life is comparable to, or better than, that of some other 3G competitors. But they have replaceable batteries. The iPhone doesn’t…
…Bottom line: If you’ve been waiting to buy an iPhone until it dropped in price, or ran on faster cell networks, you might want to take the plunge, if you can live with the higher service costs and the weaker battery life. The same goes for those with existing iPhones who love the device but crave faster cellular data speeds. But if you already own an iPhone, and can usually use Wi-Fi for data, you probably should hold off and get the free software upgrade before deciding whether it’s worth getting the new hardware.”
Great, another Apple product with lackluster battery life and no replaceable battery. But don’t worry, if you just turn off the 3G you’ll be fine…
The only important difference between the iPhone and iPhone 3G is just that, the 3G! (Well, and the higher rates)
I would’ve picked up the incredible Macbook Air in an instant if just it had a removable battery. But who would buy such an expensive product meant for traveling without the ability to carry a spare battery? Surely a company like Apple can come up with a way to fashionably design a product with a removable battery?
Regardless with the cheapest ATT iPhone 3G plan (just 450 minutes) with unlimited texting starting at a whopping $90+tax, I’d be caught in a Yankees jersey before being seen with an iPhone 3G…

What a difference a month makes…
4 US carriers now charge a fuel surcharge on award tickets, although at the present the time the surcharge is significantly less than the hundreds of dollars that foreign carriers charge.
The airlines claim that miles are now worth significantly more now than they were a year ago because tickets cost much more now. While this is true, the fact remains that people are paying more money now for the tickets to earn those miles, so it’s not a valid argument. This is plain and simple a new way to devalue what was once pitched as free travel.
(Side note: Is this really legal? When flying the flight attendants still announce that you can be earning “free travel” by signing up for the airline’s mileage program. How can they promise free travel and then charge for it?)
At any rate, here are the latest fees:
AA: Effective 06/21: $5 fee on all award tickets.
Delta: Effective 08/15: $25 fee for US and Canada travel, $50 fee for international travel. Up to $400 fee for flights originating in Europe.
Northwest: Effective 09/15: $25 fee for intra-North America travel, $50 fee for Trans-Atlantic travel, $100 fee for Trans-Pacific travel, $50 fee for most other itineraries.
USAirways: Effective 08/06: $25 fee for US and Canada travel, $35 fee for Latin America and Carribean travel, $50 fee for Hawaii and Europe travel.
Remaining carriers with no fuel surcharge on award tickets:

HURRY! SMOKING HOT!!! Price Mistake! Save $$$$ With No Fuel Surcharge On Select Routes When You Book On LAN.com!!!!
Update 9: New York-Shanghai is just $562 on lan.com!!! ($928 on aa.com.)
Sample date: 11/04 (AA309/2)-11/11 (288/1918)
HT: Finckmyster, via dansdeals.com/forums
Update 8: You can manage your British Airways bookings (request kosher meals, assign seats, add frequent flyer info, etc.) made via lan.com by using this link.
Update 7: London/LHR to Los Angeles is available for just $267 round-trip on AA or on BA.
I was only able to get such a low fare to price out when departing from London.
Sample valid dates: 11/05-11/12.
Update 6: I just booked 7 tickets for my cousins from JFK to Tel Aviv for $613/ticket, so the deal is still alive and kicking.
In order to get it to book I did have to choose the multi-city option as follows:
New York-London: 01/26/09
London-Tel Aviv: 01/26/09
Tel Aviv-London: 02/09/09
London-New York: 02/10/09
All flights are on British Airways.
On the way there the layover is just 1 hour and 50 minutes, however on the way back there is an overnight layover in London of 12 hours.
I was able to get them a 4 star London Heathrow hotel room on Priceline with a $70 bid. It turned to be the Sheraton Heathrow, where the regular rates are over $200 with tax.
Again, I’d like to reiterate that this deal will not create cheap tickets for all dates, it will simply take about $650 off of the price of a British Airways ticket. So go to ba.com, find the cheapest dates, price out a trip until you get the tax-inclusive price, and then you will have an idea of how much the price will be on lan.com.
While some people have been able to book travel to Tel Aviv via the regular round-trip booking option which doesn’t require an overnight stay in London, most dates will give you an error. The only way around this is to try different flights or dates, or you can stick with the same dates and just use the multi-city option which will require an overnight stay in London, but should always work without an error.
Update 5: This deal is bookable from Tel Aviv as well!!! (And for that matter it should work with this method from any city in the world!)
Here’s an example of how to do it:
-Step 1: Search from Boston to New York for 02/10/09 to 02/17/09.
-Step 2: The next page is the search results page, go into the URL and find both instances where it says BOS and replace them with TLV.
-Step 3: You will now get the search results for Tel Aviv to New York. Select the British Airways flights and the final price comes out to $638 which is more than $600 off of the lowest price available on britishairways.com!!!
-Use this same method for any other orignination city by using its 3 digit airport code.
Update 4: NYC to Tel Aviv is now available for just $617 Round-Trip including all taxes on British Airways when booking via LAN.com, which is more than $600 off of the lowest price available on britishairways.com!!!
HT: Charles Light, via dansdeals.com/forums
Additionally Los Angeles to Tel Aviv is now available for just $796 Round-Trip including all taxes on British Airways when booking via LAN.com, which is more than $750 off of the lowest price available on britishairways.com!!!
Sample valid dates for NYC or LAX-TLV: 02/10-02/17.
Update 3: NYC to/from London is now available for just $353 Round-Trip including all taxes on AA and on British Airways when booking via LAN.com, which is more than $300 off of the lowest price available on aa.com or britishairways.com!
Sample valid dates: 11/18-11/25.
Update 2: It’s fitting that while I’m in Chicagoland I give back some love to the windy city! I just priced out tickets from Chicago/ORD to London for just $327 Round-Trip including all taxes on AA and on British Airways when booking via LAN.com, which is more than $300 off of the lowest price available on aa.com or britishairways.com!
Sample valid dates: 10/22-10/29.
Originally posted on 06/15:
Update: Some people are having trouble booking JFK-TLV-JFK. If you are having this problem the workaround for this is to use the multi-city search option and book it as four segments. New York-London, London-Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv-London, and London-New York.
-Book on the US version of LAN.com for the best deals!
-This deal works better if you only use one airline
-Tickets booked on LAN.com are refundable for 24 hours.
-If you want to select a destination city not on the list just scroll down to “other cities” and type in the name of the city (not the airport code). It will then give you an error message, but you should then be able to find the name of city that you entered right at the the drop-down menu!
-LAN.com is very picky with certain credit cards…keep trying different cards until you get one to work!

New routes will be added to this post as they are found!
LAN, home of the incredible 20,000 Starpoints=50,000 LAN kms. transfer and of the no fuel-surcharge award tickets, is selling regular tickets on other airlines without a fuel surcharge!
LAN.com is pricing out select routes and airlines without a fuel surcharge, yielding potential savings of hundreds of dollars!
Here are some sample routes with valid travel dates that I verified this on so far:
1. AA/BA: NYC/JFK to London/LHR on 11/05-11/12: Savings=$311
The price for this RT ticket including all taxes and surcharges from British Airways and from AA is $761, but is only $450 on either airline from lan.com!
2. Qantas: NYC/JFK to Sydney on 09/07-09/14: Savings=$258
The price for this RT ticket including all taxes and surcharges from Qantas is $1,637, but is only $1,379 from lan.com!
3. BA: London/LHR to Tel Aviv on 11/05-11/12: Savings=$311
The price for this RT ticket including all taxes and surcharges from British Airways is $728, but is only $417 from lan.com!
4. BA: NYC/JFK to Tel Aviv on 11/10-11/18: Savings=$663
The price for this RT ticket including all taxes and surcharges from British Airways is $1,377, but is only $714 from lan.com!
5. BA: NYC/JFK to Tel Aviv on 10/06-10/27 (Sukkos ’08): Savings=$686
The price for this RT ticket including all taxes and surcharges from British Airways is $1,850, but is only $1,164 from lan.com!
6. BA: NYC/JFK to Tel Aviv on 04/06-04/22 (Pesach ’09): Savings=$529
The price for this RT ticket including all taxes and surcharges from British Airways is $1,470, but is only $941 from lan.com!
7. BA: NYC/JFK to Johannesburg on 11/04-11/11: Savings=$763
The price for this RT ticket including all taxes and surcharges from British Airways is $2,060, but is only $1,297 from lan.com!
Find another great deal? Post a comment!
Things to note:
-The LAN website is incredibly buggy…
-This seems to only work with OneWorld carriers, but it may work for other carriers as well. Try to stick with travel on one alliance.
-There doesn’t appear to be a way to get the site to display more flight options, either take what it pulls up or search for a different day.
