Important Note to Email List Subscribers: Thank you for letting me know you are not receiving my automated emails. So, I logged into Mailchimp and I noticed they simply stopped sending the emails after November 23rd! I had recently praised their reliability too, sad! No phone technical support so I sent them an email. It is funny how they right away started billing me $15 per month (from $10) when the number of subscribers exceeded the applicable number. And they STILL have not adjusted it down to $10 when the number of subscribers went under that threshold number, boo! I am VERY sorry for this! I am waiting to hear back what they say. I really have no time for techie issues like this. I will have an update soon. I may kill the emails as it will allow me to fully focus on the content here. To be continued!

When it comes to pollution, aviation is way up there! But we have progress: How the airline industry is cleaning up its climate act. The two airlines that are trying harder than the others are United and JetBlue. But still soooooo much left to do here! To get an idea:
United uses more biofuel than any other airline. But the over 1 million gallons it uses annually is only 1% of its overall fuel use.

Congrats Marriott! The biggest data breaches of all time, ranked.
I always wanted to go to one of these free dinners set up by financial product sales types. And record everything. But I feared for my physical safety afterwards lol. Anyway, this New York Times journalist did and here is the article: We Went to a Steak Dinner Annuity Pitch. The Salesman Wasn’t Pleased. Avoid these salesmen! At all costs. Not worth it. And you can rest assured the products they SELL are GARBAGE! Sounds familiar with bloggers hawking credit cards hey?

I have plenty of miles, I don’t trust LifeMiles and the thought of getting entangled in phone call hell quickly makes me lose interest. You do what you do.
Yet another interview of Randy Petersen. Not much new that you have not heard before. Other than Boarding Area having 140 bloggers….140?
Back in the old TBB days I would be posting scathing reviews of “select” Titan posts . One of them would have been a post by the blogger formerly known as Mommy Points who moved on to The Points Guy and now has to produce content on a regular basis. So, she wrote a post about how she ended up having a crying fit because she could not get into the United Polaris lounge LOL. And some of the commenters, I swear, were way more harsh than you guys ever were 🙂 Reader alerted me to it so I went there and felt bad for giving it a click, sad!
I will be around Brooklyn in NYC for the holidays. Maybe I’ll try for a TBB readers meetup again, we shall see. I am collecting “Best of” 2018 posts I am going to unleash at you over the holidays as everything slows down big time!
