This has got to go down as one of the most ridiculous reasons for a flight cancellation ever.
A Virgin Atlantic plane known as “Beauty Queen”, a Boeing A330-300 had just made its inaugural flight from Atlanta to Manchester, England. Upon landing it was given what the airline thought was a “water cannon salute” but it wasn’t exactly what it seemed. Continue reading
Yesterday I paid the bill on my Barclaycard US Airways Mastercard or so I thought…
I logged on at barclaycardus.com and expected to see an image of my familiar US Airways card but I was a bit surprised. Continue reading
The Freddie Awards were created in 1988 by Randy Petersen to honor the top airline and hotel loyalty programs.
The Freddie’s are a prestigious honor and it’s safe to say this due to so many airlines and hotels sending out e-mails urging members of their programs to cast a vote their way. Continue reading
March has been one of our busiest travel months that I can recall.
Earlier in the month Kim, Lucas and I headed to Charleston, South Carolina. Then we left Lucas home due to an invite to attend a family press trip to Puerto Vallarta. This week, we’ll be heading off on our spring holiday trip to a destination I’ve long wanted to visit. (Trip planning post should be coming soon.)
While on our upcoming trip I’ve heard and read that internet service can be quite slow so I don’t know how much I’ll be posting while we’re away. Continue reading
Here is some pretty interesting JetBlue News…
When a company opens a boutique hotel for its employees it’s probably safe to say that it’s gotta be a great place to work…
Forbes came out with a list of America’s Best Employers 2015 and named JetBlue as one of the top places to work in the country. Continue reading
Yesterday many of us noticed that our British Airways Avios balances were zeroed out to supposedly protect us from being hacked.
It was rather odd that British didn’t (and still hasn’t) communicated with us about exactly what is going on.
I wrote a post last night, Hey British Airways, Where Are My Avios. Continue reading
A couple of days back I came across a deal (mistake?) posted by One Mile At A Time. The Hilton Cabo San Lucas was offering rooms for an overly ridiculous low price of 279 points per night.
I quickly logged in to my Hilton HHonors account and booked a random weekend towards the end of September for 3 nights.
I wasn’t even sure if we could take the trip if the rate was honored since there are things to consider like work and getting a flight to the destination… Continue reading
When flying upfront in premium cabins like First or Business Class I’ve always found it exciting to see what the amenity kit will look like.
Last month I wrote about the most awesome airline amenity kits.
During flights we’ve received some really nice kits (Lufthansa’s Oktoberfest Inspired Kit) and some major disappointments (Finnair’s Business Class Kit). We’ve also received a couple of basic amenity kits when flying in the back of the plane. Continue reading
After I got home from work I stopped by the BoardingArea homepage and saw a couple of reports of British Airways Avios accounts being hacked.
I decided to read the articles from The Gate and Miles to Memories before checking in on my account.
It seems that many Avios accounts were hacked and British Airways may have used a preventative measure to protect others by locking their accounts and/ or zeroing the balance for now. Continue reading
