Re: Whom did you say was flying this plane?

DrFumblefinger ·
I don't mind autopilot and I don't mind a second opinion from a computer, but I don't like the computer deciding when to "fly" and override the humans, unless with very clear program instructions (eg. If plane is clearly out of control. JFK Jr could have used such a system to prevent his plane crash because he was completely disoriented when he crashed his private plane)

Re: Air Miles vs Low Fare Airline

PortMoresby ·
Continuing my search for an economical way to use my miles and avoid absurd fees, I tried a combination of 2 one-way flights, one with miles, one on Norwegian. One way on Norwegian is as low as $286. If I avoid using BA with points, flights on AA to Paris are 20,000 miles (before May 15th) plus a $5 fee (excellent!) but with a stupid schedule, 3 flights and 2 days to get there.

Re: Hotel Rewards Programs. Worthwhile or not?

That's what I do, too, SayMoi. I think it's a good plan. Use my rewards for expensive cities. Pay in lower priced cities and built up more points there. It is nice to get little upgrades and free nights for being a member of a program. Plus I like having a place of consistent quality I can count on. I like knowing what kind of room I'm going to get.

Looking for a multi-destination map program

PHeymont ·
I'm trying to find a program that will let me plot out, and eventually print, a map of upcoming trips. I've looked at a number, and each has a problem, the most common ones being limited number of destinations, and no ability to make one stretch off the route car/rail and another by air. For example, I will be arriving in Rome, flying to Palermo, driving around Sicily, taking a train to Naples and then flying to Nürnberg, and continuing onward with more stops. Obviously, Rome to Palermo and...
