Double Miles on QANTAS

This is awful nice of QANTAS:
Simply register and then make your bookings between 29 March and 5 April 2016, for travel between 29 March 2016 and 17 March 2017. So with almost a year to fly, you can book all of your flights now for twice the rewards later.
Too bad Northern Hemisphere airlines won't copy this promotion.
I don't seem to have a QANTAS picture handy

Happy Travels This Weekend

I'm still grounded at work. I'm considering mileage run opportunities to keep pace.

Denver Airport Back In Business

Denver International is open again.  Snow shut it down yesterday. When was the last time Oslo was closed for snow?

Um, Thanks Twitter

I must follow a strange collection of companies to see this ad. Also I couldn't buy anything, strange feeling since all the advertising I see is for things I can buy.

Starwood+Marriott Called Off

A Chinese insurance company made a much better offer for Starwood and Marriott walked away.  Good news for me because if I wanted to be a Marriott loyalist, I would already be one.

Rimowa and Lufthansa Electronic Tag

This is so cool! Lufthansa and Rimowa, two of my top 10 German brands, have teamed up to make built in luggage tags.  Unfortunately the bag costs over $1,000.
I Love Lufthansa

Free Movie

My United Visa offered me free tickets to a movie I don't want to see. Nice offer, but lets keep trying on the movies.

Be Flexible When Redeeming Miles

It’s a great idea to have a destination in mind when collecting miles. Some destinations are much easier reached in some programs and certain award programs give extra space to their members. Another way to stay flexible is to remember your other currencies, including money.  A round trip to Thailand may be the goal, but tickets could be very inexpensive (less than $800/rt from Denver).  It could possibly be worthwhile to send money in some instances and save miles for another adventure.
Not As Far As You'd Think
The month long search on ITA Matrix is a great search tool.

Map + Movie

The remote in business class on United's 787 Dreamliners has an option to show the flight map on the controller. This is a great development because one would have to stop a movie to see where you were and how long until landing.
