Flying 100,000 Miles,Surviving Airplane Food and the Pez Museum

  • Never rent an American car. Japanese or Korean is the way to go.

  • Never “Upgrade” to an SUV, there is no way to park it in San Francisco and there is no need for nine passengers on a business trip.
  • On the way to California never check in any luggage. A TravelPro trolley is an investment for life.
  • Take enough cloths for one week+.
  • Laundry bags are really useful. Not the ones that say “IDF Basic training 1991”.
  • No need to wear  smelly clothes. Laundry is cheap and sponsored by your employer.
  • The dry clean guy would always ask for three+ days and can always do it in one day, unless it is Saturday.
  • It is OK to check luggage on the way back from San Francisco to Tel Aviv, but the gifts to the spouse with you.
  • If the trolley does not fit in the overhead compartment,on the way back , take our the laundry bag and put it under the seat. I said it would be useful.
  • Sleeping pills are a great invention.
  • Never eat on US Airways. Never eat on Continental. Never eat on Delta.
  • Unless you fly business (I’m not…). If so, take the filet minion and shrimps. It is pay back for all the “pasta” or “chicken”.
  • Egg white omelet is not horrible. American omelets are made out of three eggs, by default. that’s 30 eggs for a ten days trip. Bacon not included.
  • Continental Presidents’ club in Newark has no food (cheese and crackers does not count). But it has a shower !
  • There are nice wine bars in both Newark and Philadelphia. Airports are expensive anyway, at least this is fun  and the service is good.
  • Wine and Oysters

  • Walgreen sells five t-Shirts for $10. No need to carry gym shirts with you. Leave them as charity (after laundry) on the way back.
  • You don’t have to visit Burlingame museum of Pez Memorabilia. But maybe.

    Boy, sounds like a horrid business trip..

    Here’s my tip to add: take a small trolly on the way “to” the destination (naturally, don’t check it in) and pack 2 huge collapsible duffel bag in it. These will be checked in on the way back..

    *Always Upgrade to an SUV in Dallas, being the smallest car on the road is not a nice feeling
    *fly a European company to the US, re-checking baggage is a hassle (and they usually have better food)
