Re: Finnair proposes Kathmandu-Helsinki flights

I personally do not see this route being something with demand considering AY's current fleet.

Re: food on domestic US flights

I received a snack box on Continental in 2012. In Europe it's only Alitalia, Aeroflot, Airberlin, British Airways, Lufthansa Group (except germanwings now Eurowings and SN) and TAP Portugal that serve complimentary meals on all flights.

RE: The CBP Experience At MIA.

I once waited over 5 hours in the immigration line in 2003, no organization whatsoever. It has gotten better with APC machines and Global entry.

You could be thru immigration and customs on average in about 30 minutes.

RE: First Time Uber X And XL User - Thanks!

Uber is definitely my preferred method of ground transportation. Especially in cities like Los Angeles, a taxi is $2.70/mile vs uberX which is 90¢ a mile which is three times cheaper. Now, what is your policy when it comes to tipping an uber driver? I never tip uber drivers because the transaction i...

Similar for dual US-EU citizens: For example someone Frankfurt-Miami, you would present your US passport at check-in and then clear exit immigration with your EU passport.

RE: 1hrs45min Enough To Connect In PHL?

If you don't have Global Entry, it could take 105 mins from deplaning to customs alone. You are safe with this if your flights are on the same ticketing, they will re-route you. You are hosed if this on separate ticketing.

If you are oneworld Emerald, in this case NOT Executive Platinum you can use the AA Flagship Lounge. Otherwiae just sit in the Admirals Club. An uberX will cost $35 each way so you then only have $10 for food/attractions.
