I have a big problem .
traveling with AirChina this weekend from copenhagen to japan.
But their limit on carry on is 5kg, one bag.
My laptop plus charger alone weighs in at around 5kg. Then i need my powerbanks also on the flight.
My question to you is, what is it that they measure. If lets say, i have the powerbanks in my jacket, does that count as carry on weight?
No they won't care if they're in your jacket.
You could probably get away with it in your carry on because they most airlines don't weigh it unless they look suspiciously large. I've gotten away with a few kilos overboard on my carry on many times before. Also, a lot of airlines don't consider a handbag or small backpack carry on - you could bring two bags if you wanted to and probably get away with it quite easily. At the end of the day, you're only gonna lose some pocket change if they charge you for the extra weight.
Ok, thanks alot!
Not so experienced with flying. Sas is alot more specific, one bag plus laptop bag. 8kg. But airchina, one bag 5kg. those three kg makes a big difference. But thanks again, feel alot more calm now :)
Yeah, don't worry :)
Like I said, they will only charge you for the extra weight and I doubt it would be very much.
Do you have check on?
Check in baggage? Yeah, one bag up to 20kg i think it was.
ATM my carry-on is heavier than my check in bag (Y)
Just throw the charger and any other unnecessary junk into the check in, honestly.
Ask questions that dont deserve their own thread
Any recommendations for shite to check out in Hannover. Is the nightlife any good ?
What are some of the best places to visit, cities to explore, and things to experience on the western side of the USA? Not California and not Las Vegas because I’ve already been there.
I will have five days. I’m 30 years old and healthy. Give me your recommendations!
Portland is pretty cool. the whole PNW is great imo. especially in spring.
Denver for sure .
Day in Frankfurt and Nuremburg or 2 days in Nuremburg. Opinions?
Taiwan threads never seem to last here so I would appreciate info on >where's the cool place to stay while in Taipei if you like bars and pubs? Or indeed Tainan, Kaohsiung or any other cities? >any off-the-radar but awesome spots on the island? I have time and money to go exploring a bit but am mostly interested in city stuff >Is Jiufen any good or will I get a few photos and then be bored? >any recommendations for places to hang out to meet expats?
Depends on what you want to do. Frankfurt has little interesting things. You wouldn't miss anything by skipping it. The one thing it has is world-class brothels so if that's your thing spend a day there.
Who else is addicted to flying business class? Full flat bed and sipping champagne.
Booked 14 hour flights with turkish airlines business in september. My longest flights (of 300+ total) so far.
I only book business class special offers however. This shit is just too expensive otherwise.
Because it fires up the dopamine in people's brain to get called up on the loud-speaker, stand up, and board while the huddled plebs watch on.
And it fires mine up to not give a shit while I stretch out one last time.
Seems pointless, if you're going to upgrade why not just go first class?
If first class is too expensive for you, stay in coach. "Business" class just seems like it would disappoint both groups of people. Either unworth it for the price difference, or like a half assed upgrade.
As a old guy I can tell you todays interconti business class of all carriers beats 1996 top tier carrier first class by a mile and todays economy is just short of those days business.
It was Economy <<< Business <<< First
Today the gap is Economy <<<<<< business << first.
The difference is so marginal that it dosen't warrant the cost. The usual difference is 20cm more space and better meals/higher class champagne (Krug instead of Moet). Overall not worth 2-3x the money compared to business unless you can get the upgrade by miles or voucher.
Who fucking cares I'll be asleep for all of it. I can spend the $300 I saved on a nicer phuket bungalow for the week
I've flown business and first, and it just is not worth the markup to me. I can do a lot of cool stuff at my destination with that extra money. If I was making upwards of maybe like 350k-400k usd a year I would probably go for it on long haul flights. Its not like its that bad to sit in a seat for 10-20 hours. The free beer gives me comfort for a much lower price.
Is a 46 minute layover at LAX to Australia too short?
Oh shit, didn't know you had to go through customs. If you do have to switch terminals or do customs, then definitely too short.
Where are you flying in from?
Just to be clear, there's a layover where you switch planes? I know a lot of flights from the east coast to Australia make a stop at LAX.
I can't remember the last time I went through LAX and it wasn't a total cluster fuck.
It is such an outdated and disorganized airport.
Just to be clear, unless there is an issue at the airport that actually causes you to miss your flight, they will not reimburse you if you dont make it. The long lines excuse wont cut it. They base this on the fact that they believe people should have good enough judgement and not buy a flight that they cannot make.
Where are you going next?
Why did you choose that particular country/region?
How are you preparing?
What are you most looking forward to seeing?
Going to Boston in a month, staying there for a week.
GF wanted to go there and its been a few months since we've traveled and I've never been there before Not doing anything yet Not sure any tips?

>Where are you going next? 40 days through Italy, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Slovenia, Hungary. Maybe Vienna >Why did you choose that particular country/region? I wanted a warm climate, to experience the balkans, and smack some good countries in because this may be my last chance to do a longer trip like this for a while. I've been infatuated with the balkans for couple years now too. > How are you preparing? Flights are super expensive right now currently, waiting for them to go down probably in the next week or two (planning to leave in mid May). I've had my route planned for several months. Already got a list of cool hostels to book as well. I'm going to book transit for my first two weeks and then book the rest while I'm there. > What are you most looking forward to seeing? Bosnia & Herzegovina. I haven't researched it much at all, will be in Mostar and maybe Sarajevo. No idea what to expect. Any thoughts? Should I include Sarajevo or drop?
Someone I know did it 2 weeks ago, just an average joe
are you looking for the bustling city aesthetics or chill nature/history/country?
I've 16 days in Japan with two friends. We bought the tickets cause they were dirt cheap ($400AUD return) and we're all a bunch of filthy weebs so we wanted to go for ages.
I'm preparing very poorly, I don't think we'll have much money for it, but we'll have to make do. I've picked up some basic Japanese phrases. I'm keen to see the various temples, onsen, and the Seto Inland Sea. Plus, the general atmosphere of inner-city Japan.
I am planning a trip through the fine nation of Norway in April.
I will land in Bergen and stay with friends for a few days before taking the train to Oslo to stay with family for weekend.
I will then fly up to Kirkenes for a few days staying with more family.
I like the outdoors and plan to pack gear including a bivvy bag to hopefully spend some nights under the stars.
I like culture too. Any suggestions for museums in Bergen/Oslo?
Any foods I should try? Or any other general tips from locals?
Cheers ladies and gents

Was gonna say, it looked shopped. Who the fuck photoshops a picture of Lofoten anyway?! It's already picturesque as fuck...
Looks better like this anyway IMO

I don't know, but I've seen it too many times.
I want to go to NYC.
But I'm scared. I literally know no one there, if anything bad happens to me there will be no one to take care, since I know no one there. I also have no idea what to expect when it comes to crime rate.
Any steps I should take to be less afraid?
It's one of the safest big cities in the US. It is remarkably safe actually.
I have never felt unsafe in New York City, even when I was around black and hispanic people.
If you aren't a sperg or an idiot I will chill with you when you visit.
NYC is safe, just don't go to certain neighborhoods (small places which you probably won't visit anyway) at night and you're fine.
The only big city I've been to and actually felt safer in is San Diego. You're going to be fine if just about anything happens to you.
Yeah the only places that might actually be unsafe at night are way out of the paths pretty much any tourists would go on.
I'm a 24 year old single male and I'll be going on vacation to New York City for about a week next month.
I'm getting an airbnb in the University Heights section, on West 183rd street, is this a good area?
I have a general idea of what I want to do (go to meseums, parks, eat, experience nightlife, etc.), but I would like some recommendations as well as miscellaneous pointers.
Any restaurants or bars in particular that you really like? This is a bit of a long shit, but it would be awesome if I could get laid. I'm not counting on it, of course.
what are you talking about?
Sure the Bronx is dirty but it's really not that dangerous, if it were its own city it wouldn't be considered particularly dangerous.
Long Islander trying to sound smart
Those lines all go to Lower Manhattan, which is the center of NYC nightlife.

1228597 again. Coming into Manhattan from Brooklyn in Queens will always be better for tourists. Look at the subway map. It's not like you're going to get your wallet and kidney stolen in the Bronx, it just has grinding, soul-sucking poverty and is further from anything you'd want to see.
Despite The Bronx being poor, rents are still pretty high there (even if cheaper than other boroughs)
Oh and if I can get a Puerto Rican chick to sit on my face I'll be sooo happy
I just got accepted to a college program that will allow me to study in my choice of Bath, England or Thessaloniki, Greece. Both seem like great offers, but I've never been to either place. What do?
>>1229192 >implying the byzantines didn't built those churches for the public
Why would you take the time to say that these churches were made for the public as if it was negative, aren't most churches built for the public?
Me and my British friend always joke about differences in English between countries. His 'american' accent vs my 'British' accent impersonation is always warrents a chuckle.
As an American, England will be very boring. Greece will offer you that exchange experience that I think you are intending on having.
is greece cool? I'm not OP but im thinking of going there soon. I am thinking of spending a few days in Athens.
I want to experience living in another country for a while, and just have some time to get up to shenanigans and grow as a person. Plus I've been in school my entire life, and always living with somebody, and I'd like to experience just not having commitments for a while when I finish up with uni. I was thinking maybe 3 months, since it's short enough for me to be able to fund it without working during that time, but long enough to actually do some stuff. Has anybody tried this before? How was it? Where did you go, and do you regret it?
>Pic semi related; how I feel in my current country sometimes, knowing that if I don't take a break after uni and before full time work, it'll just get harder
Figured I'd post my current plan, which I've done exactly 15 minutes of research on. Literally my first idea, so I'm definitely not married to it.

Myeah. I suppose. I'm not up to current with the value of your dollaridoos, though. Check rental prices, multiply that by ~2.5 if you just want to live there and do nothing.
Or, you can save that money, get a job and move out of your mom's basement, then travel when you have some cash set aside?
Going to Thailand to "grow as a person" by doing jack shit all day. Jesus christ.
