Will you be doing a one-way rental from the UK to Ireland, or will you return to the UK at the end of the trip? Also, which part of Ireland, the Republic or Northern?

Will you do other flights? What do you want to use any miles gained for? Upgrades? Short flights? Long flights? And have you looked at whether any of the other OneWorld frequent flyer programs might be a good fit for you already?

comment How can you get the best value when converting American Express points for airfare?
Which frequent flyer programs are you already a member of, and how flexible are you with dates and stay duration? Oh, and I take it you mean London (UK) and not say London (Ontario)?

comment Can you enter the departures area without a boarding pass at London Heathrow airport?
Could you buy a fully flexible + refundable ticket, for a flight later in the day from the same terminal, then cancel it once airside (probably paying a small late cancellation fee)?

How many of you will there be? That'll affect if train+ferry or car+ferry is likely to be cheaper

comment When is it that you can't reserve a specific seat on a plane beforehand?
BA will let people with BAEC status select seats in advance, at 7 days for Bronze, at any time for higher. I think a lot of airlines tend to do something similar for their frequent fliers, but not all

comment Is it risky to wear a name tag in public in an unfamiliar city?
Depends where you are - in some cities if you're holding a map people will come up and try to help you. (Perth, Australia was one place where everyone was amazingly friendly and helpful). All depends on what city you're in, and what area within the city!

comment Is there a ZIP code I can enter when paying-at-the-pump in the USA with a foreign credit card?
In my experiences with using a UK card in the states, 00000 doesn't work, and the staff in the gas station are able to handle the exception, but I wouldn't say "well equipped to handle"...
