    -Random Link #2: In which DDF user damaxer91 shares his experience using Starpoints for a suite at a Knicks game and getting kosher food from Abigael’s. Read further in that thread for a picture of view from the included front row seats at a Rangers game.

    -Random Link #3: In which you’ll read the absolutely fascinating story of Chaim Pikarski selling 9 figures of goods on Amazon.

    -Random Link #4: In which you’ll see why to avoid the coffee on planes, and not just because it tastes bad.

    -Random Link #5: In which someone has their credit score damaged because of a bad review they wrote about a company.

    -Random Link #6: In which you’ll realize the never-ending contradictions in baby rearing advice.

    -Random Link #7: In which you’ll read what’s probably the funniest tweet from the #UnitedUnfriendly saga, courtesy of DDF moderator Chaikel.
    The original #UnitedUnfriendly tweet from that night was retweeted 127 times.

    -Random Link #8: In which United agrees to participate in the boycott of United due to the #UnitedUnfriendly changes. #Fail

    -Random Link #9: In which a DDF noob follows my advice and uses 40,500 miles to go from Tel Aviv-NYC, “stopped over” in NYC for 11 months, and then had a free one-way flight to Phoenix for no additional miles. This stuff isn’t just for the experts though personally I’d have gone for a free one-way to Alaska or Hawaii 😀

    Random Link #10: In which DDF user Bailbino has been reporting live from a USAirways flight loaded with folks who bought sub-$500 tickets back during the August deal. The flight tonight has been plagued by mechanical issues on the ground.  After several hours of delays someone screamed out loud that he paid $1,500 for his flight and was tired of the waiting!  At which point several people simultaneously screamed back to him to start reading DansDeals 😀

    Dan, I would like to repeat my hakoras hatov for all that i learned and continue to learn from you. I am also flattered that you picked my comment as one of your random posts. I was aware of the Alaska or Hawaii option, but I really wanted to go to Phoenix. I am not out of the game yet, and neither is Alaska or Hawaii

    Were alot of the PHL-TLV travelers flying on Monday night (11/18)? I was in the PHL terminal A club and it was totally inundated with fellow Jews, including a group of Chassidim trying to put together a מנין for מעריב.

    elchonon

    I flew USair nov 19 from PHL flight was fine, must be nov 20 flight ? amd thanks dan, i actually paid 400.

    The USair flight was pretty empty, i had a 3 seat ghetto upgrade.. slept so so.

    The “blankets” on US air are a joke.. My pillow i use for flights was not much help as its meant for sleeping sitting up.

    I guess a travel blanket is on the shopping list

    my friend arrived at PHL this AM, she spotted some frum ppl and asked for a ride to Brooklyn. she got not such nice responses. “we rented a car” (so what, you cant offer someone a ride in a rented car? against US law?) “sorry”, best one was ” Im connecting to canada”. she took a train to the bus and a bus to nyc and then the subway. Guys, cant u be nice to a frum lady?

    best part, the guy “connecting to canada” somehow was on same bus to nyc..

    gary
