It was an adventure driving to the airport on Saturday as it had been snowing all day! I only managed to spend three hours at the Lufthansa Senator Lounge this time! I am flying on a United award Detroit to Frankfurt on Lufthansa and onwards to Thessaloniki, Greece on Aegean Airlines. In Business Class. This could be the last UA award ticket flying Lufthansa after the devaluation massacre last month. Oh it will be so so missed…I had to wipe some tears off, thank you for understanding!
I will NOT be adding the usual section titles in my blog posts while traveling. So I am just going to throw at you whatever I noticed that was worthy letting you know about it. I may miss things so please don’t judge
The Flight Deal had a phenomenal post on ” All Nonstop US Airways Flights from Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Phoenix and Charlotte with British Airways Avios Starting March 31st, 2014″ Some fantastic awards can be had this way. Hurry, quick, may not last that long!
Amol of Hack My Trip wrote “Alaska Airlines Stopover Rule on Domestic Awards“. Some great ways to take advantage of this!
Be careful with them Vanilla Reload cards boys and girls! Weird stuff is happening. This post by Free Travel Guys “Vanilla Reload Scam-And Incomm’s Response“. I can’t believe they will respond this way….I can’t believe this has lasted so long if crap like this is done! [Note: By featuring something here it does NOT mean I like that particular blog!]
IHG Rewards is going for a second round of the Win Big promotion! I am at 95.8k points for 4 nights in two brands and wife is at 84k pts for 4 nights in two brands too! Much better value proposition this time! I may look to mattress run my 3 night award stay at the Orlando Four Points by Sheraton. But I am afraid of further and deeper devaluations in this program. I will have to think about it over mother’s home cooking
