Hi all,

Been browsing older forum posts here on FatWallet and FlyerTalk, but not much posted or shown for National.

My upcoming trip is from DFW to DTW (Detroit).
It's for a short Thanksgiving stay (Nov 25-27) from Noon to Noon.

Any online references/links/resources I should reference that are current? Don't have a problem trying different corporate codes or coupons.

Thanks in advance!

Banks: Card Breach at Hilton Hotel Properties
article by Brian Krebs
Sept 25 2015

"Multiple sources in the banking industry say they have traced a pattern of credit card fraud that suggests hackers have compromised point-of-sale registers in gift shops and restaurants at a large number of Hilton Hotel and franchise properties across the United States. Hiltonsays itis investigating the claims.

In August, Visa sent confidential alerts to numerous financial institutions warning of a breach at a brick-and-mortar entity that is known to have extended from April 21, 2015 to July 27, 2015. The alerts to each bankincluded card numbers that were suspected of being compromised, but per Visa policy those notifications did not name the breached entity.

However, sources at five different banks say they have now determined that the common point-of-purchase for cards included in that alert had only one commonality: They were all were used at Hilton properties, including the companys flagship Hilton locations as well as embassy suites, doubletree,Hampton Inn and Suites,and the upscale waldorf astoria Hotels & Resorts.

In a written statement, a Hilton spokesperson said the company is investigating the breach claims.Hilton Worldwide is strongly committed to protecting our customers credit card information, the company said. We have many systems in place and work with some of the top experts in the field to address data security. Unfortunately the possibility of fraudulent credit card activity is all too common for every company in todays marketplace. We take any potential issue very seriously, and we are looking into this matter.

As with other recent card breaches at major hotel chains including Mandarin Oriental and White Lodging properties the breach does not appear to be related to the guest reservation systems at the affected locations. Rather, sources say the fraud seems to stem from compromised point-of-sale devices inside of franchised restaurants, coffee bars and gift shops within Hilton properties.

It remains unclear how many Hilton properties may be affected by this apparent breach.

Several sources in the financial industry told KrebsOnSecurity that the incident may date back to November 2014, and may still be ongoing.

This is a developing story. More as updates become available."

Views: 1996 Replies: 2


The holiday season will be here before we know it, and if you want a good deal on airfare, planning starts sooner than you think.Thanks to the Orbitz Holiday Insider Index, we now know that travelers can expect to get the best deals on airfare for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve during the week of Oct. 5 to Oct. 12.When it comes to Turkey Day, the best day to book airfare is on Oct. 6, when the average price of a round-trip ticket will cost about $406. Orbitz explains that last year, many people booked their Thanksgiving Day airfare by September 20. This caused a spike in prices, so by mid-October, you can expect that airfare will be more expensive.

In the case of Christmas, the best day to book airfare is on Oct.9, when a round-trip ticket will cost about $428. If thats too soon for you, prices are also expected to dip on Nov. 6 and Nov. 7.And finally, if you want to ring in 2016 in an exotic locale, start planning now. The best day to book New Years Eve travel is Oct. 10, when the average round-trip ticket will be about $362. Orbitz says that last year, most people didnt book NYE travel until November, so get in ahead of the crowds to snag the best deal.

Hi all,

Need tips or suggestions on how to prepare for this trip. First time going to Europe and not sure what the best way to bring money for spending.
I've read the benefits of Chip + Pin over Chip + signature. I don't have a pin card but a signature card at the moment. Not sure if it's worth opening up a card that has chip & pin.

If I plan to stay about 6 days, should I bring enough US cash for those days or will a credit card suffice? Also, plan to check out countries around there like France, Germany...
so is it best to just use a credit card instead of exchanging US dollars to their units?

Also, best place to get the best exchange rates?

Views: 3166 Replies: 19

Carnival will never honor the "great vacation guarantee" it is the biggest scam going . Touted as the greatest thing to ever hit the cruise industry until you invoke it.

First off I am a Platinum member of Carnivals VIFP club or WAS and have 100 days sailing and 14 cruises. Until 2 days ago I was Hooked on Carnival and actually HAD 2 future cruises booked which are now being cancelled.We just got back from the worst experience ever on the Carnival Elation for a 5 day cruise leaving 8/17/2015 and return on 8/22?15 . Within minutes of boarding the boat I had an issue requiring me to Go to the guest services desk and deal with the deck officers. I am a Platinum guest and have expedited lines that I can use and took advantage of but this only hastened the impending rudeness of Barbara Plenca the Guest Service manager of the boat.With 1.5 hours before the sailing of the Elation it was made quite clear to me that this boat was quite different from anything I had experienced before and the level of contempt that this crew has for its passengers knows no bounds. I immediately invoked the " great vacation guarantee" which if taken literally describes no questions asked no refusal for any reason peace of mind ....ABSOLUTE %$#@..... I was immediately and summarily denied and was told that I did not qualify ..

********************************Passengers may invoke the guarantee for any reason. If the problem is something guest services can fix, it will offer to do so. But if passengers don't want a fix, don't believe their expectations are being met or just don't think Carnival is the right fit for them, Berra said the line will honor the guarantee, no questions asked, get them home from the first port of call and provide the 110 percent refund. If the return home violates the Jones Act, which prevents cruise passengers from traveling between two U.S. ports without also stopping at a foreign port, Carnival will absorb any penalties that may be incurred******************************

Dont believe any of the above statement from Berra Carnival Executive it is HORSE @#$% . Carnival is scamming cruisers , has no intention of ever living up to this guarantee and should be sued over this.The internet ( Cruise critic) describes how wonderful this guarantee is and that it has only been invoked 45 time over the last 15 years out of the 3 million passengers they have carried. Absolute *** again they only record a token few of the thousands of people that have invoked this worthless guarantee but never tell you how many claims they just deny.Carnival Elation and Barbara Plenca are a disgrace to the cruising industry and should be removed

Views: 4498 Replies: 16

You are about to squeeze into a long metal tube with other people for what sometimes feels like a lifetime. You will be shoulder to shoulder, knees to butt with strangers. It requires decorum. It requires thought. It requires that you make decisions based on the fact that every move you make affects someone. Every. Move. We are at each others mercy inside that giant flying toothpaste tube. Be kind. Here are the top 30 things not to do on a plane.

Attempt to board drunk

The days when flight crews looked the other way regarding inebriated passengers have long passed. And dont forget that your fellow passengers are all social media reporters. Best-case scenario is that you end up in someones Twitter feed drooling on your tray table. Worst-case scenario is that you stay behind to sleep it off curled on a cold, dirty airport floor.

Bring anything on board with garlic, onions, or fish

Taking stinky food on a plane is unconscionable. Not only will your seatmates be stuck smelling it while you eat, there are aftereffects to be considered.

Have a hygiene failure

Flight time is the wrong time to try a new antiperspirant, rush to the airport without a shower, or skimp on laundry. The stinkiest travelers are usually the ones coming home from long tropical vacations. All the clothes they took with them are now soaked in sweat, rum, and sunscreen. The plane soon smells like coconut-scented sneaker inserts. Do us all a favor and at least and wear a fresh souvenir T-shirt home on the plane. Go against us and we may hashtag you #PassengerShaming.

Exceed the carryon limits

We all know the limits. Most of us manage just fine within those limits. Join us and watch how much smoother the boarding process becomes. Hashtag for this one? #CarryonShame.

Bring a carryon that you cannot personally lift into the overhead bin

There is no amount of charm that makes this the right thing to do. Unless someone in your party can lift your carryon overhead, check it.

Put your coat in the overhead bin before everyone has boarded

Lets be clear. You are certainly entitled to bring your coat along with you as you return to Minnesota from your cruise to the Bahamas. You are not entitled to take up valuable bin space with it until everyone with an actual piece of luggage has boarded the flight.

Assume the airline will feed you, entertain you, or make you comfortable at no charge

Theres a price on everything these days. You are on your own in the friendly skies, so plan accordingly and bring your own non-smelly stuff.

Self upgrade

Look George, theres nobody sitting in the exit rows. Lets move up there. I once saw a pilot tell a passenger it was okay to move up to the premium seats, but dont expect that from a flight attendant. Cross that invisible barrier between regular economy and economy plus and youll get a stern talking to from the crew and glares from passengers on all sides those who forked over the money to be there and those of us behind you still in the cheap seats.

Think you can charm your way into an upgrade

You know they send flight attendants to FBI-quality BS detection classes, right? You may think youve got what it takes to talk your way into an upgrade, but why risk the smack down?

Think you have any rights at 30,000 feet

Your goal is to get from point A to point B. The crews job is to get you there safely. Sit down. Shut up. And let them do their jobs. Your rights basically end at wheels up.

Blame anyone for anything after take off

See the previous bad decision. Dont pick fights at 30,000 feet. Dont send nasty tweets. Save any and all beefs for after the plane lands.

Sit next to someone with red eyes

Red eyes mean one of three things: alcohol, drama, or germs. You really dont want any of those things spewed on you inflight. Even the most uncomfortable seat on the plane would be better.

Take Ambien for the first time

Or any other medication for that matter. Its infinitely better to tough it out through a sleepless flight than to watch your Ambien alter ego dancing naked down the aisles next week on YouTube.

Forget to take any medicine you normally take

The reverse of course, is equally true. If your daily routine includes important meds, both you and your seatmates will have a better experience if you stay on track.

Choose a window or center seat if you know you will be up and down a lot

Dont be a jack-in-the-box. The right thing to do is to weigh your options. Is it more important to you to look out the window or to stretch your legs five times during a flight?

Think exit rows are all about comfort

Either be prepared to look the flight attendant square in the eyes and answer verbally that you are able to open that door and save us all, or let someone who is more capable have the extra legroom.

Forget to count rows between you and the exit row

If there is only one safety precaution you take on a plane, this should be it. Knowing that you could find that door even in pitch black is more comforting than a good stiff drink.

Skimp on hydration because you hate plane potties

On second thought, you go ahead and deal with jetlag and dehydration hangover. It makes the lines shorter for those of us who want to arrive refreshed.

Use the business class potty, because you think it will be cleaner

It probably is. And the line is shorter. It may even be bigger. Its part of what those people paid extra for.

Take your child to the business class potty

There had better be a really urgent reason if you are going to use your child to gain access to that forward privy.

Change a diaper on the tray table

You do realize that people put their food on that tray table, right? There are no perfect solutions to the diaper changing issue, especially on long flights. BabyCenter.com offers helpful advice.

Assume everyone on the plane wants to entertain your child

They dont. Playing peek-a-boo over the seatback is cute for about three minutes, not three hours. Bring enough entertainment for the whole trip.

Forget to teach your children about airplane voice

Airplane voice requires leaning in and speaking softly. But most importantly, it requires airplane listening. Make a quiet game of it and everyone will enjoy the flight more.

Forget to use your own airplane voice

Chatty children are easier to tolerate than a blow-hard who talks loud enough for half the plane to hear. Tip: if you are hard of hearing or have a naturally loud voice, dont sit near the engines. The added noise level forces you and your seatmates to talk over the roar.

Think that your case of travelers tummy will improve inflight

To be blunt, things happen at 30,000 feet. Digestive things. Uncomfortable things. If you are already suffering from an uncomfortable digestive issue, know that it will worsen after takeoff. You should attempt to find a remedy before you board. Otherwise, prepare to enjoy your flight from the lavatory.

Leave your headphones on when the flight attendant is trying to talk to you

It is not only disrespectful to the person whose job it is to save your life, but it makes you talk loud enough that half the plane knows what you want to drink.

Touch a flight attendant

In case you havent noticed, they have a bubble of personal space that should never be breached. Its creepy and disrespectful.

Be an armrest hog

Keep your elbows to yourself and everybody stays happy.

Forget that someone is in front of you and behind you, trying to be comfortable

Look before you ratchet your seatback to its full recline, dont slam the tray table, and dont let your 7-year old kick the seat in front of him when he gets bored.

Think that your connecting flight is more important than everyone elses is

It doesnt matter how tight your connection is, there is probably someone on board with a tighter one. You dont need to get off the plane any faster than anybody else does. Your impatience will not get the doors opened any quicker. Of course, the drunk with the overstuffed carryon that he cannot wrestle down from the overhead might slow you down a bit. Just lend him a hand and you can both move along. Airplane karma will catch up with you eventually.

I'm going on a Royal Caribbean Cruise to Conzumel, Grand Cayman Islands, Haiti and Jamaica at the end of September. It's part of a writing conference. This is my first cruise, so I'm a bit nervous. Any advice for first-time travelers on a cruise? Here's a couple other questions.

- Once a ship returns to port, how long does it take to completely leave the ship? The ship is scheduled to reach the port at 7:00, and my plane leaves at 12:30. Will this be enough time?

- When do I present my passport, and what should I know about customs when buying souvenirs?

- I'm going on some excursions as part of the conference. What should I be aware of when I'm on tours in another country?

- How much cash should I bring, or perhaps more precisely, what should I expect to pay with cash and what should I expect to pay with debit card?

Thanks in advance from a traveling newbie

<![CDATA[UK airports -- "duty-free" tax brouhaha regarding some major retailers; you can refuse to show boarding pass]]> http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/travel-discussion/1456711/ Rating: 2 Posted By: NantucketSunrise
Views: 2996 Replies: 10


'It's an absolute disgrace': Passengers' fury at airport VAT rip-off that 'nets millions of pounds for shops including Boots, Dixons and WH Smith who don't pass the savings on to the customer'

  • Shops accused of making millions from tax discounts on duty-free sales
  • They avoid paying 20% VAT on goods if customer travels outside Europe
  • But few pass savings on, meaning products are sold at high street prices
  • Today, customers expressed outrage over companies 'taking advantage'

Customers have branded major retailers 'an absolute disgrace' after it emerged companies are milking their margins at airports by not passing on VAT savings to customers.

The furious reaction comes after it emerged high street giants including Boots and W H Smith insist that airside customers scan their boarding passes at the till so they can avoid paying VAT.But in many cases they are charging the same prices as they would on the High Street, making millions by bolstering their profit margins with the 20 per cent tax savings.Although not illegal, the practice has infuriated consumer rights experts and led to calls last night for retailers including Boots, Dixons and WHSmith to come clean with customers.

....Consumer rights experts have led to calls for retailers to stop misleading the millions of customers who come through Britain's airports.Holidaymakers were also warned to be wary of goods sold under the guise of being 'duty-free' as shops are often the only ones who benefit from airport tax relief.

Consumer affairs expert Paul Lewis said retailers are 'not being straight with the public', adding: 'They are asking to see boarding cards but not telling them that this is so they can make more money by not paying the VAT on what they're selling.'What of course they should be doing is passing on the savings that they make to the passengers who are travelling outside Europe.'

Guy Anker, of the website Money Saving Expert, said: 'There is an assumption that duty free means cheaper. But that is not the case. All it means is that the stores themselves are not paying the duty.'


Now airport shopping rebels refuse to show their boarding passes: Revolt grows after it emerged retailers make millions from tax discount without lowering prices

  • Millions of holidaymakers thought they were legally obliged to scan passes
  • But they are only scanned to allow firms to avoid paying 20% VAT on sales
  • Passengers revolting amid claims firms do not pass on saving to shoppers
  • Treasury Minister David Gauke has demanded an end to the rip-off charges

Airline passengers are refusing to show their boarding passes at airport shops after it emerged that retailers are making millions from tax discounts without lowering prices.

The growing revolt began at the weekend after passengers learned it was pointless to show boarding cards at checkouts because the only purpose is to allow firms to avoid paying 20 per cent VAT on sales.

Millions of holidaymakers and business travellers believed they were legally obliged to comply with requests to scan their passes for security reasons or because they were getting money off goods.It has meant frustrated passengers have for years endured the inconvenience of fumbling in bags or cases to dig out the passes in the queue at airport shops.But travellers were furious when it emerged that multi-million-pound retailers only ask to see the travel documents to boost their profits. Items, including soft drinks, books, perfume and clothing, that are taken to destinations outside the EU are exempt from VAT.Firms avoid paying it if they produce evidence such as a scan of a boarding pass but few pass the saving on to customers.

Last night Treasury Minister David Gauke demanded an end to the rip-off charges. The VAT relief at airports is intended to reduce prices for travellers, not as a windfall gain for shops, he told The Independent. While many retailers do pass this saving on to customers it is disappointing that some are choosing not to. We urge all airside retailers to use this relief for the benefit of their customers.

Boots emerged as one of the biggest offenders, according to an analysis last week by the newspaper.For every 8 bottle of Nivea suncream sold at an airport shop to customers travelling outside the EU, it can reclaim 1.60 in tax. The high street price is also 8. Although not illegal, the practice has led to calls for Boots and other retailers including Dixons and WH Smith to offer discounts.



Staff at Gatwick branded the situation a nightmare yesterday, as frustrated passengers struggled to understand the rules.

Confusion reigned as different retailers gave out different information. Some had stopped asking for boarding passes, while others refused to serve shoppers unless they presented their flight details.

....Saga Holidays spokesman Paul Green said: Treasury ministers have confirmed what many holidaymakers believed for some time that you need to be wary when shopping at Britains airports.The VAT exemption is supposed to benefit hard-pressed holidaymakers, but the only ones who appear to bagging a bargain are rapacious retailers swiping a 20 per cent VAT refund without passing it on to customers.'Saying that it is just too difficult not to charge the VAT-included price is nonsense their systems are clever enough to reclaim the VAT so treating customers fairly should be simple.He added: This is tantamount to racketeering.

....An HMRC [UK Government] spokesman said: There is nothing in VAT law to require the production of a boarding pass to purchase goods in airport shops.

<![CDATA[Article abt. the same vacation being priced very differently depending on which country's website the purchaser books on]]> http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/travel-discussion/1456710/ Rating: 3 Posted By: NantucketSunrise
Views: 3120 Replies: 6

It'snot surprising these days to learn that a companymight charge different customers different amounts for the same product/service, depending on where the customer lives or how the customer accesses the company's website(s).

I don't know if the info in this articlewould beuseful to anyone here -- it's aimed at British consumers --
but as a wider issue, it does go to show that it's worth checking around online to compare prices, even looking at foreign-language sitesif they sell the product/service you are thinking of purchasing (especially if it's not something that has to be shipped and paid customs tax on).


Identical holidays - but we pay hundreds more than the Germans and French

British holidaymakers are paying hundreds of pounds more for holidays than families across Europe when they book exactly the same deals online.

A Mail on Sunday investigation has found prices listed on British websites can be vastly higher than those on equivalent sites in Germany, France or other countries.Last night, experts and consumer groups hit out at what they called rank profiteering from holiday companies. Marc Gander, of the Consumer Action Group, said: British people will be very surprised to find this is happening its just an opportunity for these companies to make extra profits by treating them as cash cows.

Our investigation found camping holiday website Eurocamp charges British tourists 2,495 for a two-week holiday next August in a three-bedroom mobile home in the resort of Berny-Riviere in Picardy. A German tourist would pay just 1,472 for exactly the same break a 1,023 difference.

The company, which has more than 160 resorts, also lists on its UK website a seven-night holiday in August next year in a two-bedroom mobile home at the Norcenni Girasole Club in Tuscany for 1,210. However, the same holiday is being sold on its German site for 979.

Meanwhile, French company Club Med charges two British adults and two children 2,936 for seven nights in December in the Alpine resort of LAlpe dHuez La Sarenne. A French family would pay just 2,586 a saving of 350.

Transport too can be cheaper. On its UK website, Direct Ferries is offering return tickets from Dover to Calais with P&O between August 19 and 26 for 180, while its DirectFerries.fr site has the same tickets for 147.Elsewhere, sailing holiday company Sunsail offers seven nights on a three-cabin yacht in Greece in August from 1,260 but German or French sailors will pay just 1,007.

Last month, the EC announced it was investigating Disneyland Paris for charging visitors from the UK and Germany more to visit the park than those from France. A week for a family of four from the end of August is on the UK website for 5,753 but the same week is priced at 4,946 on the French site a saving of over 800.

Eurocamp said: Our prices are in line with the demand we see in each of our source markets. DirectFerries failed to comment.

IF you want to save thousands on your holiday, it might be time to brush up on your childhood German. Just knowing that Zimmer means room and Bad means bath could help you snap up a break at a discount as you can book via a cheaper foreign-language website.

Eurocamp.com has links to its different country websites, so if you usually book through Eurocamp.co.uk, try seeing what the holiday costs on the German (.de), Danish (.dk), Irish (.ie) or Belgian (.be) sites.

Club Med also has different language sites for the UK, France and Germany.

Eurocamp, like Disneyland, says you can choose what market you book through, and so if dont want to book online, you can do so over the phone specifying which price you are quoting.

Hi all,

I am looking for a one way rental from mid town NYC to PVD (Providence airport). I will need the car on 8/26 evening and return the next day later afternoon (1 day). All rates are extremely high using travel site (no corp codes). They were all about 200. I checked individual sites using corp codes, and found Hertz does not have any car available. Avis does have cars available, however the rate was just as high, unless I use the Citicorp leisure travel code. The catch is that this code does not include any mileages for the low rates, and Avis wants 35 cents per mile. The drive is about 200 miles, so after adding the 70 bucks, the rates are still lower, but not as impressive.

Anybody has some insights to share, as of how to get a reasonable one way rental for my need?

Views: 2541 Replies: 5

2weeks ago, I was flying via LHR so booked it in such a way that I landed Terminal 2 at 7:30am and had connecting flight at 930pm from Terminal 4.
That gave me (technically) 14 hours in London. Thanks to FW forums and a very helpful long PM from "Nantucketsunrise", I had a good time.
Here is a quick account of my "day in London".
Quick Summary : I ensured to be free of all bags, Took local train to St. James Place station, Walked from there to London Eye to Westminster station and train back to LHR in 8 hours. 6 hours of walking, 2 hours in train.

Landed at LHR and had to claim my baggage (2nd flight was more than 6 hours out and different airline so no through checked luggage). BUMMER...
Found "Excess Baggage Company" store in the Arrivals area (they seem to be in every terminal). Deposited the big luggage and small carry-on bags. Flat rate 10 per bag per day. Conclusion: Well Worth every pence!
Current time around 845am. Walked out and across to local train (tube) station. {Avoid Heathrow Express train}. They sell "Oyster Card" and u add money on it to handle your train expense. I was able to pick 2 cards lying around and filled 10 on one of it.

Took the next train {Blue Line} to CockFosters (Only train that runs from Heathrow airport). Got down at South Kensington in approx. 35 min and changed to Yellow Line, 2-3 stops later deboarded at St. James Place. local time approx. 1030am.

Walked out of station, spent about 5-7 minutesto read road signs to gather my bearings. Walked to Buckingham Palace. Found myself at the right place right time. It was the time for Changing of guard (happens once daily at 1130am). I was in the middle of about 5,000 strong crowd (beautiful sunny 70degree day after 4 days of rains). Witnessed the useless spectacle but enjoyed the theatrics nonetheless.

Walked towards BigBen on Birdcage Walk (local map on back of umpteen number of tourist bus flyers was veryhelpful). Really liked the walk and seeing all the local buildings on the way.
Reached BigBen around 1150 and bought some sandwich+ice-coffee from a shop. As I was munching it, heard a lot of ruckus around me. Guess what. it was NOON. The most popular time to be witnessing BigBen as it gongs 12 times! Took some customary pictures and selfies in red phonebooth, with bigben in background, with few other "notable" buildings etc...
spend about 45 minutes walking around and appreciating the parks, Westminster Abbey etc. Really liked the Lavender blooms around the Parliament Sq. park in front of Abbey.

Walked across Westminster Bridge with eye on LondonEye. Spent about 30 minutes on the bridge watching all the Romanian crooks (it sure looked like a very strong and organized gang) offering a near-certain win in 3-shell games. Kept the discipline and didn't partake. Didn't try to be smart aleck and walked away. Was at EYE entrance around 2pm. With the various lines and waiting involved, it would have been 2 hours for me to climb and be back so decided to skip it. Sat in the park where some local guy was trying to control his 3 daughters who were jumping in puddles and running around in park. Chatted with him or 15 minutes, enjoyed the general scenery and kept walking (downstream?) towards Jubilee Bridges.

Almost bought a pint of beer from roadside caf but beer stench all around was so strong that it put me off and I skipped it. I am so glad for all the visible police presence in NYC now that I have visited London!

Walked across the bridge, around the Charing Cross, Around the Trafalgar Square, some souvenir shopping etc, walk on Whitehall witnessing the ScotlandYard, 10DowningSt and other noted buildings. Was at Westminster Station at 4pm. Took the train back to S. Kensington and walked out. Visited one museum to witness some "local" life and spent around 1 hour around there. Took the Blue Line back to airport.
Walked to "Excess Baggage Store" and paid 20 cash to recover my 2 luggage pieces. Boarded the train loop for Terminal 4 and was at super-crowded check-in counter by 7pm. Crossed the Security and was at the "Plaza Premium Lounge" in Terminal 4 (Part of the perks I got from my Chase Ink card Thanks to FWF few months back). Double shot of Glenmorangie, nice hot shower, another double shot and some good food. 1 hour on recliner and wifi to connect back to my world.
Local time 845pm. most of the tiredness from past 28 hours cleared up. Hurried walk to the airline gate. one of the last passengers to board. Doors closed, 2 single-serve bottles of Gin and 5 hours of sleep!

In short. 6 hours of walking tour of Central London and a 2 hour recovery in the lounge was well worth the day.

Thanks again to FW forums. I value this community and will be happy to give a little back with this memoir.

Not looking for march of death hikes but something that can be done over max of 4-5 hours.
