It was my first experience with Etihad Airways, and it was the most pleasant flying experience I ever had. I am flying for 70 years. In Russia, it was Aeroflot, and other Russian Airlines; in Canada, it was Canadian airlines. I flew almost every European airline and thought Lufthansa was the best. I flew every US airline and found none of them matches Lufthansa. This time I decided to try Etihad Airways from Los Angeles to Cairo with a layover in Abu Dhabi. It was truly the best flying experience in over 65 years. I flew in economy class. From courtesy to cleanness, to price, comfort and layover time this experience was superior to my any other flying experience. Those conditioned to fly only domestic airlines are missing on something extraordinary."

Initially, I was pleased with Metromile. It was a young, dynamic company, offering a good service. However, it changed for the worst. I am 81 and leave alone in the heart of the Sequoias. Last year I had a major surgery and went to my friends in Long Island, NY. to recuperate. Before I left, I call Metromile and ask if it is OK to suspend my insurance for about seven months and reinstate it when I am back in California. I was told there is no problem, but no one took care to explain that my rates would go up. They increased everything: the base rate, per/mile rate, even an after 100 miles discount went up to 250 miles. They said I had to be treated as a new client. No explanation and no consideration. They lied, saying that it is also because the industry has increased rates. When I checked it out with Progressive and the 20-th. Century, I was told, no rates were increased in that period.
Metromile is a good concept. However, be aware of their iron fist in a velvet glove.
