comment Why are prices published without tax in the US?
How about catalogs? And TV advertising? Newspaper advertising? The in-store problem is relatively easy to solve, the rest are not.

Almost certainly your bag of applies was $1.99 PER POUND. The bag weighed a little over 2 lbs, plus ~8% tax brings you to $4.50.

comment Who to contact for missed connection on a multi-airline flight?
@Calchas That may be (and frequently is) the case, but it's not what your answer says. Your answer says that the next carrier is "responsible", and they are NOT. Depending on the situations and alliances they may do it, but they are in no way responsible for doing it - the previous carrier is.

You've got this backwards. Officially it is the carrier that does/will deliver you late that is responsible for re-routing you. In this case that would be Air Canada. Air Canada in Frankfurt may be able to re-route (eg, FRA-IAD-MCI on United), or in YYZ they will be responsible for finding a new routing to MCI.

comment Are non-US citizens elegible to sign up for TSA-Pre?
@JBaruch I am a non-US citizen/non-PR, and I do not have a KTN, yet I still get Pre for about 50% of my flights in the US (down from maybe 90% before the change you're referencing) - most recently last Saturday.

comment Transit visa not required at amsterdam
@BurhanKhalid KLM has 5 transit desks at Amsterdam, as well as a huge number of self-service kiosks (which the OP may or may not have been able to use). There is no need to go airside to check-in, thus no need for a visa.

comment Is it safe to travel from Singapore to Batam by ferry?
Cars crash. Planes crash. Pedestrians crash (well, trip, or get hit or something). The fact something happens once isn't an indication on how safe or otherwise it is. This is an interesting event, but it's not an answer.

@MichaelHampton He "radically" alerted his question because I asked him for further information, rather than just answering based on guesses around things like luggage...

comment Transit visa not required at amsterdam
Given the updated information the original answer given here is incorrect. The updated answer is also incorrect, as the OP would have clearly provided details of his connecting flight. Your link to Timatic is also misleading as it is for the Netherlands as a destination, not a connection point.
