comment Am I too heavy for Chinese hard sleeper trains?
Yup, at 120KG you'll be fine. 220KG as originally stated would likely be a different story!!

comment Incentives to change flights
$5000? Sorry, I can't believe that. If they are unable to find volunteers they will "Involuntary Denied Boarding" (IDB) someone, which will cost them a fraction of that amount. $500, maybe. $5000, not a chance.

comment Incentives to change flights
Having flown International First Class (ie, on a 3 class plane!) on what was booked as an Economy ticket only a few months ago (as well as being "paid" $200 in vouchers), I can guarantee that upgrades can still play a part in the conversation...

Wait.. 270 lbs is NOT 220 kgs - it's 120kg. Are you saying your weight is 270lbs/120kg, or 485lbs/220kg??

The problem with that logic is that the person asking the question does have "much more than [your] weight", so...

comment Backpacking with visa B2 in USA
Once you've applied there's no way to withdraw the application. However I suspect that (at the time the question was asked) the OP had not actually "applied", but instead had just made an appointment for an interview and potentially filled in the relevant paperwork (eg, DS160). At that point, no actual application has been made - that only happens at the interview - and he could easily cancel the appointment or simply not show up and it would not be considered a negative.

comment Re-entering the US for the third time in a year with total of 240 Days
@phoog Yes. You can request to have an "exclusion hearing" in front of a judge, and then even potentially appeal the judges decision. The odds of this actually succeeding are extremely low, but technically it is your legal right IF you have a valid visa. If you are entering on the VWP, then you waive these rights.

There is also no rule that pigs can't fly, but IMHO it's more likely that they would than this person being allowed entry to the US.

comment ANA non-stop flight from BOM to NRT
I believe it was an all-business-class config when it first started (similar to what SQ used to run from Singapore to LAX/JFK with their all-business A350's), however it now has about a dozen economy seats in it too.

comment Should I get travel insurance for a trip booked as a mileage award?
It probably would have helped to mention that you are flying United. Cancel fee (presuming no status) is $200/person.
