Hello from Florida! I spent this week at home, and next week am off on another huge adventure, which should be the best one of the year. I can’t wait to share the full details of that.
I’m just wrapping up my last trip report based on the trip we just completed, so let me know if you guys enjoyed the “live” trip report format, or if you preferred the “preview” during the trip, and report after.
On the points & travel front, this week World of Hyatt launched an award sale, a Delta 757 had a very rough landing in the Azores, ANA announced they’d offer their new first class to Frankfurt and New York, British Airways strike dates were announced, United announced international expansion, and more.
With that out of the way, here’s a recap of this week on the blog:
It always pains me to see people not maximizing their credit card spending.
I’m not just talking about friends and family who have sub-optimal strategies, but even just being out-and-about I sometimes see the credit cards people use, and I can’t help but want to have an intervention.
Oh well, I guess any credit card is better than paying with a debit card or cash (assuming you’re financially responsible and can pay off your balance in full each billing cycle).
I had an incredible review trip trying all kinds of amazing business class products.
Suffice to say that this portion of the trip ended on a low note.
I actually reviewed EasyJet last year as I flew them between Milan and Santorini, though this time around wasn’t quite as pleasant.
Let me share why.
