First about changing dollars for euros at home. This is from Sharon Nold:
Regarding the bank and money exchange. I checked at my bank and they didn’t exchange currency, but while I was at my credit union I asked and they had a good deal. I could exchange any amount of US currency to Euros for $7.50 for the going exchange rate. They took my money, and I will get the Euros in the mail. It does take from 10 days to 2 weeks.
Those of us leaving from Los Angeles will be taking United flight #934 which departs LAX June 12, 2010 at 12:45 pm.
I will send your itinerary to you individually. If you have special dietary or seating needs you will have to contact the individual airlines. I tried to arrange seating via the internet on United and it looks as though it may be too early to do so. If you have a frequent flier number you may find it easier. I will probably attempt to call them directly in the near future.
