    I saw 0% APR for 36 months at a Nissan/Infiniti stealership. The deals are out there.

    Reading the various tweets regarding them, it looks like I'll get the popcorn.

    If you decide you just want a good burger and don't want Tex-Mex, the nearest Whataburger to IAH - https://www.google.com/maps/place/W...dcda88c796ff40!8m2!3d29.9799925!4d-95.2763772

    I'm not sure that this is PBM worthy, but LAX-Europe is $2100-2400 in P, and works for Labor Day.

    ETA: I think it is a mistake...game on!

    ETA 2: It seems to be good through November, and will even allow routings on LH (748 on FRA-LAX).

    ETA: Includes segments operated by TP, SN, LH, LX

    Delay/cancelation question

    At dca and my 8.05pm to cle was pushed to 9.35 pm then to 10.20 but inbound aircraft has not left destination yet. Was told it would likely be canceled anyway but not officially just yet

    Was told I could have a cab voucher to Dulles but likely face a cancelation there also

    Next flight out tomorrow is not until 11 and is sold out

    United telling me they have no obligation for hotel or anything else due to this being weather.

    No big deal I've rented a car to drive straight home from here ....have an important family function tomorrow I can't miss. Am I missing anything here in terms of comp?

    I don't have the luxury or confidence to sit around until 10.30 and hope when I can hit the road and be two hours closer to home by then

    one of their better recent efforts for sure, from a place that is (IMO) already the best of the 20+ in Fort Collins.

    Early flight with @Xyzzy is REALLY early especially considering I played a gig last night and haven't slept.

    To quote one of the songs we played last night, "I'm so tired, I haven't slept a wink...I'm so tired, my mind is on the brink."
