  1. Call absolutely cheaper to maintain than a hotel room, the parking space (and it’s share of the parking garage driving lanes) tends to take up about the same amount of space as a hotel room – 300ish sq ft. If anything, many hotels are probably under-charging for parking even given these increases, if it’s still only 1/3 of the room rate.

  2. I’ve flown Bangkok airways several times. It’s not a surprise that an outsized share of their profits come from Samui, they have a monopoly there. That’s kind of how monopolies work. Not really a party airline, but is pleasant and friendly.

  3. Not sure about NYC, but the Etihad F reduction is NOT available on the Apartment to London. Only the crappy 787-9 F flight each day is reduced to 120k. The A380 services remain at 140k.

  4. I parked in a garage for 2 days told them I lost my ticket and they asked me when I came in told them got in that morning about 8am they only charged me for 1 day. Good thing they did not scan my License plate.

    Been in a Parking garage where it you were at 8 hrs the rate was US$20 at 7:59min it was $12 I got stuck waiting in line because the Darwin in front of me could not put his CC in correctly.

  5. That should be Etihad’s business class rate r/t NYC to Del jumped $2000 in the last week.
