I didn't know this was an option from Hertz. The Southwest partnership looks like the only enticing value. As with most transfer opportunities, don't transfer points unless you need them or there's a limited time bonus. Always remember the relative point values.

I like to star planning early and am thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas season travel later this year. I have a few ideas and a few programs with miles, so it gets complicated quickly.

The Southwest Airlines infant fare isn't really a deal. I love the idea of having a row to ourselves as a family of three and I called reservations to ask how much an infant fare would cost. The Wanna Get Away fare was $205 round trip. The infant fare is a modest discount off the Anytime fare of $716. It's not worth buying if a Wanna Get Away fare is available.

All the Air France strike news has rekindled my interest in flying to Europe. Seriously. Lufthansa has strikes about 1/3 of the time I have a reservation with them. Memories. Last time I got to fly British Airways and Air France. The time before got me my first ride on a 747-8. All those trips were bought with miles, but Lufthansa paid cash to rebook me, so I earned miles. Strikes can be fun.

Is the former Virgin Atlantic A340-600 G-VWIN flying scrap or will it see passengers again? UAM announced they bought the aircraft for dismantling. It landed in Tupelo, MS for likely it's last flight. Then a few weeks later I spotted it flying into SFO. It stayed for two days then went to Manila. There's a A330/340 heavy maintenance base there. Will G-VWIN see the sky again? At least some parts will.

Good deal if you have 20,000 SPG points, you'll get 31,250 AA miles. Don't forget to register first. The deal works with most, bit not all, AA hotel partners.
