Most sell full-sized luggage as well.

(Just to avoid any confusion, the "Doc" that left the previous comment is NOT the same user as the "Doc" that answered the question, or left the earlier comment above)

comment Are there any Starbucks open after 11pm in the West Village?
Except the Starbucks website (which would have been the easiest place for the person asking the original question to actually look) disagrees with those times.

@O.R.Mapper All of my local shopping malls require you to be dressed when you go there, yet they contain countless shops that sell clothes. How stupid is that? 100% of the people there already have clothes, so why are they trying to sell them more?!?

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about something not related to travel.

comment Flying TYO - FRA - LAX - TYO
RTW flights are generally not a good deal when only 2 stops are required, especially when traveling in economy. It's only once you build in multiple stops that they (sometimes) become a good option financially.

comment Travelling from US to India through Frankfurt on H1B visa with approved extension
Note that LH9053 is NOT a Lufthansa flight, but instead a codeshare of United 903 (a high 4 digit flight number is normally a giveaway for most airlines that it's a codeshare).

comment Re-entering the US on visa waiver from Mexico by car
Although not directly related to the question, who's car are you planning to drive into Mexico? Most rental cars will not allow it, and even for private cars there are normally additional insurance requirements. Make sure you've done your research first!

comment Re-entering the US on visa waiver from Mexico by car
@AdityaSomani entering by land absolutely does change the requirements. When entering by land an ESTA is not required, and an I-94W form needs to be filled in UNLESS you have already entered the US on a VWP within the past 90 days and not left North America in the interim (which will be the case here, so in this case nothing additional is needed - but in a general sense your statement is very wrong)

comment Middle name missing on flight reservation, can I still fly?
The data used for APIS will be collected during check-in. There is no requirement to have a middle name listed on the ticket for APIS/TSA/etc.

comment Non-Biometric Venezuelan Passport Travel to EU
Are you saying that you have a passport without a machine-readable strip, or a non-biometric passport (ie, one without a chip in it). They are very different things.
