comment Super Saver vs Flex awards
appreciate the edit, but you may have noticed that "super saver" and "flex" don't even appear on that page. Also, I still don't know what isn't clear about the definitions the airline programs provide. An answer that just copied (or reworded) that page couldn't be helpful, could it? What help do you need?

comment Super Saver vs Flex awards
At a minimum, tell us about the page, maybe paste some of it in, and ask a specific question - for example "why, if super saver is cheaper, would anyone buy flex?" or something like that. Then you may have an answerable question. Just asking "hey what do these words mean in every possible context they could be used, even though they may have different meanings in different places?" is not an answerable question.

pick an airline. Also, explain what it is you want to know that is not clear on that airline's own web site where the terms are defined.

it's my understanding that this is permanent. It was for my uncle, anyway. I recommend you contact a US consulate for advice specific to your situation.

comment Is there a legal limit to the amount of cash one can carry on domestic flights
i recently saw an episode of Border Security where an American producer brought $400k in cash (hundreds and twenties) into Canada to pay crew etc during a shoot. They let him and the money in. Obviously in order to get to Toronto he first had to travel within the US and the TSA or other authorities did not relieve him of the cash first. He declared it to Canada; I'm sure he also declared it earlier in his journey. So that's one data point that says you can sell your house for cash and probably be ok flying with it.

comment Electronic devices security on airplanes
pretty sure it was Turkish. I found the combination of "we will all watch the same movie" and "free wifi throughout the flight" amusing.
