    Levitra vs. Viagra

    I've used Cialis for a couple of years now. I am 56. I have a script for 10mg tabs, and I've found that 20mg is just about right. That dosage will last me around 30 hours give or take. One of the known side effects is headache, but I only get that maybe 10% of the time. It does give you a diamond-cutter of a boner, but it makes it hard to finish the deed for some reason.

    Xiamen Airlines from LAX

    Thanks to all for the input. Out of nowhere, American Airlines now has a $2400 business class to BKK through Hong Kong. I fly AA for business so that will add a big chunk of miles. About to pull the trigger on that one. I got to see Hong Kong when it was still British in 1981. Can't imagine what it's like now but interested to see.

    Xiamen Airlines from LAX

    Yeah I've heard some stories about flight delays in China as well as customs issues. EVA is a little high right now (around $5K) but I will watch them. As this is my first trip to LOS I would rather pay extra for Korean Air. A friend of mine consults for the Army in Korea and uses them often with no complaints.
  4. Hello all - I'm down to a couple of airlines for my December trip, Xiamen and Korean. Xiamen is cheaper, and has a nice 1-2-1 business class for around $2400 Anyone try this airline before? I'm flying LAX->BKK. How is the transit through Chinese customs? Thanks
  5. Has anyone tried Air China or China Eastern before? They are the low-ball price at the moment for Business Class in December LAX->BKK at around $2200.

    SkyTrax Best Airline of the Year 2017

    I think they're 1-2-3 in the "Turkish Prison" category, though. I flew United out of Newark for almost all of 2013. I should get a medal. And another rabies booster...

    Qatar Airways Business Class?

    Yeah, I managed to stumble onto that later on. After my first search, I looked on Google Flights and found a few Asian airlines like you mentioned with even better prices. Flights out of LAX seem to have the best selection and prices. Xiamen Airlines (which I had never heard of) has a 787 for $2,350 which is amazing, but has long layovers (9 hours there, 22 hours on the return). I think Hainan and China Eastern came in around $3K, I may look at those again. I'm seriously looking at Korean Air, which is around $3,400. A bit higher, but it's an A380 and the layovers both ways are only 3 hours, although it's 2-2-2 also.

    Qatar Airways Business Class?

    Thanks for all the input. Actual service would probably seem like heaven to me; I fly U.S. domestic routes on a regular basis, which is just a notch above galley slave compared to what I read of most international carriers.
  9. Wanting to fly Business Class to BKK from the States this December but it's pricey. I found a deal on Qatar Airways that's pretty reasonable, DFW to Doha to BKK on a 777 for about $4K. This is $2k below the standard U.S. carrier's best price. I have a neck injury from a car wreck years ago, and I know that 13 hours in coach would make me a miserable grouchy bastard for 4-6 days afterwards, so that's out. I'm reading mixed reviews about Qatar on Google, anyone have experience with them? Emirates is only a bit higher, with better reviews. Any input on them is appreciated as well. Thanks DD
