|Doug Parker, biggest bad airline CEO in da world!|
I am trying to find a groove to be able to keep up this baby and keeping myself sane. So I start yet another section I will call it “In my mind”…which is exactly that…what’s on my mind presently. No time for any links for this section, sorry!
As you may have noticed this is a mini version of the original full versions of the TBB posts…I just don’t have the time to do this as I used to. I hope you still find it worthy of a visit!
ON MY MIND
I had predicted the US Air and AA merger a long time ago (yes I like to rub it in) and Gary Leff at One View from the Wing had said not likely (or no way, can’t remember). I can’t recall the exact blog post that was documented. I hereby declare victory:-)
Doug Parker is looking at himself in the mirror as we speak. His life long dream is now a reality, he runs the biggest airline in the world! He probably told his momma when he was a kid “Momma, when I grow big like daddy I will run the biggest airline in the world!)”. To all of you champagne and caviar lovers, he is coming to get you. Chris Elliott is throwing a party I hear to celebrate the huge victory against them Flyertalker types! Long term, we are screwed as the screws will turn even tighter slowly. In the short term we may be thrown some nice sized bones to chew on to keep/draw us in the tent. This is the final huge merger, the old days of super money loser airlines are gone. That only leaves ugly duckling Alaska Air that may get bought next but likely won’t happen for a while (if it does, it will likely be Delta snapping it up). Mileage runs in a few years may be reserved to true psycopaths:-)
Milesmomma is starting a new feature in her blog titled Milesbuzz from the blogosphere. Really?
I was going to get me some cards today now that the refi is behind me…but run out of time…again!
Got wife and daugther one way tickets from KUL to SIN on…Air Asia in their trip to see my inlaws. Really cheap prices about $39 each (yes after several fees!). Darn Amex triggered a fraud alert and had to start the purchase online all over!
MVP POST OF THE DAY
Million Mile Secrets is killing it now…”What I do and don’t do to earn money on the blog“. Wow. Isn’t it amazing if you do the right thing it just happens to make lots of good business sense too? Plus you have a smile while you look at yourself in the morning. Here is the comment I left at his site:
This miles/points addict salutes you Sir.
Like I said earlier, I wish your transparency and disclosure policies were copied by all other bloggers in this space. But they won’t as most will try to squeeze/maximize every freaking dollar they can.
I apologize for the crap I gave you in my blog for harmless things such as pics and arrows and too many pics with cards:-) Post away, you have earned it. Just keep it up, you know I am always watching.
I am saddened to hear about your mother in law being taken advantage of a charlatan bent oh maximizing his/her income…every time I hear of this it makes me sick to my stomach (I am sick quite a lot, lol).
I must admit I like the India pics:-)
