Qatar Fare Sale

Want to wager the recent airspace restrictions on Qatar will be short term? Then book a coach fare on Qatar for a discount. Worst case your flight will take much longer than it should.

Thanks SWISS

I recently booked an award flight and was excited to fly on a Swiss CS100 from MAD to ZRH. I then had a 777-300 home and it was all in business class.  Then Swiss canceled the Madrid portion and now my trip is in air. I really wanted to fly that new aircraft. Oh well, I guess I need to wait for Delta to roll it out.

Don't Purchase Miles

Don't buy miles. If you're in a pinch and need <10,000 miles, try earning through a partner. The online malls usually work for gift card purchases.

Keep Burning Miles

No use hanging on to a currency that inflates 5-10% a year and is accept less often.

A Gold Member Was Upgraded on United

I was shocked to receive an upgrade as a Gold level member. It was Sunday morning LAS to LAX and the flight was hideously delayed. Also I had already taken my seat in coach, then was plucked out and handed seat 1D. I had a great view of The Strip and enjoyed some Bailey's on the 65 minute flight.
