    Interesting insights everyone – appreciate it.

    We are leaving. from LAX.

    There is no particular expectations from LA and we are aware that public transport is subpar and the city is not pedestrian friendly either.

    We are not looking to walk everywhere but we appreciate a few hours walk a day even if that can only take place by the seaside or Beverly Hills as it seems to be walkable. Definitely we are not looking to go to hop-off major attractions by walking.

    Andrew – 100km walk over 6 days sounds like us, any particular recommendations?

    Any must-sees for such a limited time?

    If you have both the Platinum and BAPP, can you use the Travel Inconvenience insurance from the BAPP as it is more generous for baggage delays?

    You should always claim from whatever insurance you have that is more generous, but not more than one.

    Does this mean you can use the BAPP even if you paid for the trip with the Platinum? And do the replacements you buy, have to be bought with the same card you are going to claim from?

    Called one of the London stores.

    They don’t do price matching anymore but it used to be the case.

    You can’t use your account balance but you can use a physical gift card.

    Can you use your account balance in store though?

    Nothing personal or targeted, just a counterpoint. It’s a long and admittedly complicated conversation.

    If the insurance provided my the platinum card is not adequate, there are plenty more providers out there with better offerings.

    Most healthy people don’t have hypertension and/or cholesterol. On the other hand, most overweight and obese people do.

    Good evening.

    I have a one-way F booking to LAX and looking to add a BOG-MAD or BOG-MAD-LHR.

    Is it better to book the IB seats separately and contacting BA or call and have them add the flights?
    I’m assuming it might be more cost-effect booking separately myself.

    Thanks!
