Travel, Points, M$ acronym list

Recommended Posts


Can someone explain this thread to me? :dntknw:

 

Sure Nate. Lets start at the beginning.

 

I spent hours compiling a list of acronyms that relate to travel, points and M$ discussion. I then made a post about it to share the info with everyone.

 

Breeze made it a sticky.

 

Some people have added suggestions of things I overlooked or was mistaken about

 

I added lots of different airlines from my travels around China / SE Asia.

 

I added some new European budget carriers that are making an impact on the US market in particular (Look in to how the US legacy carriers and DOT are screwing with D8) (D8 is on the AL) (AL is on the acronym list)

 

Cappy showed me that I was needlessly using the code tool when I could just cut/paste all nice and pretty straight from Word.

 

Juggs made a joke.

 

I responded to Juggs joke with another joke.

 

Witz I'm really not ever sure what he's/she's intentions are

 

Liz suggested I add things that already existed

Thanks for the updates. Just a suggestion...

 

The spacing is off... Also, probably easier on the eyes if it were all to be capitalized at least the first letter of everything. Simple Word trick does it. Also would help if in bold.

I can't get the second column to cut/paste and keep the justification

 

I capitalized proper names...and a couple stragglers.

SMAW- When douche bags shoot at you and you are too close for an air strike and don't have armor support. Pin them down in place with suppressive fire, call up the SMAW gunners, and level their place of concealment with HE or Thermobaric rounds. Move to the next block, rinse and repeat

I say separate the airlines, possibly even in categories of KrisAir and various airline groups

 

That is what makes my head hurt as I am not as familiar with them all, being a domestic goddess of course.

 

I do fly across the pond regularly but nowhere exotic like the Big K.

I just keep adding all these random Asian budget carriers I come across out of BKK, HKG, KUL, SIN.

 

Once you make it here from the US, stuff can be crazy cheap. $50, $60, $100 gets you to tons of places.

I've been tempted on more than one occasion to up the family and move to Taiwan.

 

You can feed a family of 4 for like $30 and still have stuff to take home.

 

Have a friend over there now and he posts on Facebook all the time, t he stuff he eats and buys and it's crazy how cheap it is there.

You should do it. If only for 6 months or a year. The kids would be better off for it.

 

I would have lived in China the last year or two if DHS/USCIS would allow it. Once my wife gets her citizenship and the high speed rail line gets finished in the city my factory is in, I might move to Guangzhou or Shenzhen where my kid can go to a US or Australian International School.

I'm sure they would be but they are at a point where uprooting them would so more harm than good.

 

I'm sure we could live very comfortably there. Maybe one day.
