  1. That JFK-ICN flight connecting to ICN-SYD is a great way to get from the East Coast to Australia on an F award but how are the J seats out of JFK? Are they still Barcaloungers?

  2. We were at a hotel in Cape Cod in a Motel there. We were young, so do not judge. They required a 50% deposit by check to make the reservation. When we got there in the room there was no refrigerator for injectable medication that cost $1500 a month out of pocket (it was a new type of drug). The place was dark and dirty. The bathroom floor was bouncy like a trampoline, due to the floor being wet so much. I got the hotel banned from the AAA guide for 4 years. (this was before the internet). It is still a dump to this day.
