As soon as this item hit, I swear it was posted in several Boarding Area blogs almost simultaneously. Maybe Boarding Area should invest in a writer to do all these standard news releases and change them just a bit so it is not a dead giveaway? Or maybe get a robot 🙂 Oh, the news was that AA will change the upgrade priority to favor the passengers who actually spend money buying tickets from AA #wow.
And the other news of the day was that Chase is already limiting the Sapphire Reserve bennies by changing from a calendar to a cardmember year so no one will claim the $300 travel credit twice in a year. Expect more hits. Next go several categories that now are applicable for the travel credit.
A more severe ban laptop will cause chaos in travel. Not that we needed to be reminded of it so brace yourselves!
From Landlopers: My Favorite Adventure Travel Experiences Around the World. Not going to ask you the typical blogger cheesy question at the end “Which one is your favorite?”, I am sure some of you will likely tell me 🙂
Ok, way too serious educational subjects. How about something like this to laugh a little? Man found ‘masturbating vigorously’, says he did it because he hates Portland. I am not so sure I want to visit Portland for the next stop in the TBB Reader Meetup tour. WTF Portland? Lol
This goes back some years but so educational: The Dot-Com Boom and Bust.
Lets go inside a grocery store. In North Korea. Is it just me or aren’t North Korean women very attractive? Discuss in the comments 🙂
I am telling you, there is something in the water in Southern Europe.
This section is for advanced level hobbyists and veteran blog readers & personal rants & stuff
These 13 US lounges restrict your entry as a Priority Pass card holder. Boo!
Blogs pumped the crap out of the latest “Buy Miles” bonus promotions. When you click on one of so innocent (and not prominently disclosed of course) links they dish out…they benefit. I don’t know the exact $ arrangement. I assume cookies are placed in your computer, yes? Anyone who knows arrangements of these non-trasparent deals, please let us all know, thanks! Don’t buy miles, don’t be a victim. You are just expediting the time for the next devaluation and making some bloggers richer! Why don’t you ask them how they benefit? Go ahead, I’ll wait.

AffiliateLink Mile at a Time is getting a TV show on Bravo. And The Points Guy does not…even with all that staff!
This is what pumping is all about. And moronic incidents becoming blog posts. And, so you don’t forget, I have no integrity. Bwahahahahaha
Shaking my head: Grammar mistakes on headlines, Passengers spills tea crap, that Canadian only coming out to sell another credit card, the hideous non stop selling of credit cards….and I have no integrity. I mean, what can you say other than just laugh at the ridiculousness of it all!
And I leave you with this…Ok, this is not that funny…
