In Topic: Delta... are you sure you wern't hacked?

So I was at the LAX Delta terminal.... another delay.. this time I pushed around some of my "you know how much money do I spend with Delta a year... right" weight....  Needles to say of to United they sent me.... 


But, people were losing it.. one guy almost got cuffed and hauled away.... kind of felt bad for him...


I am dreading the return trip....



really, there's no need to go off on the counter people,  they're pretty stressed too,  unless they're being a dick..   what most people don't realize, is you can take your ticket over to another carrier and they'll convert it over to their airline and get you on a plane..




Can you elaborate?  I'm interested... never knew this was an option...  Or are you just trolling.

Go to a bar, waive a big wad of dollars in the air and ask who will change them into Chinese money.  Then follow your new best friend into a dark alley and he will give you what you want. It works great every time.



This and Scratch's plan should have me all set.


Should I insist that they are all card carrying Triad members in good standing?

Thanks all!  Great tips.  


Credit card called, and no dice there. 

Not an AAA member...

I'm liking the Seattle airport idea for quick cash for car hire, then either an ATM, or bank transfer China side with USD cash for all the rest of expenses.


The cash culture is interesting, I wonder if their government doesn't want the citizens to rack up the debt like we sure do in the US.

Some of those anchor-outs were super strange.


Is that crazy lady still living in that 1/2 sunken wooden tug way up near the houseboats?


Without a word spoken to her I was taken to task for all my flaws (there were many apparently) whenever I sailed the dingy or kayaked within earshot. 


Had to laugh, but it was really sort of sad.  She needed help.
