Another big thank you for all the wonderful and helpful information.
Someone asked about my purchase of the Copenhagen cards. I am actually going to buy it through Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards. I love Southwest Airlines but they do not seem to fly wherever I am going. I have amassed about 40,000 miles but you can use these miles to buy all kinds of rewards all over the world even if you are not flying Southwest. I believe this is the only airline that does this.
I am actually going to be able to buy a three day Copenhagen Card and still have miles left over from Southwest Airlines Rapids Rewards.
Well, I am relieved that I will not have to buy much or any currency before. One big thing off of my mind.
Re my question about bathrooms at the airport. After a flight, I often need to go to the toilet before anything else and I was worried about having the right coins.
After all my responses on this site, I am feeling so much more relaxed and relieved. I am feeling more excited about my trip.
I still have not booked my air. I have about 27,000 rewards with American and need 30,000 unless I want to buy miles. Perhaps I should not wait any longer.
I live in Austin and here is the deal with American. I can fly directly from Austin to London non stop on BA but still going through American. Then I transfer from London to Copenhagen. That is 30K miles but also about $270 cash, no matter what.
Now, if I want to fly from Austin to Dallas, then on to London and then on to Copenhagen. it is still 30K miles but I only have to pay $27, quite a difference for the inconvenience. Again, this is through American.
Flying home, I believe that I am going to fly Norwegian.
The airfare is shocking on the major airlines, like $2,600 ONE way.
I am glad that Copenhagen airport is wonderful because I may have to spend the night there when trying to get home. My cruise ends on October 2nd but by the time I get to the airport, it is too late to fly out. I have to wait until the 3rd. If my budget allows, I may spend the night at Clarion Hotel but my flight is so early, I may just want to spend the night in the airport.
