Interesting data point on bypassing Chase 5/24.
I burned 70k United miles for a one way Business Class award to Greece. Same old itinerary. Detroit to Frankfurt on Lufthansa and then with Aegean to Thessaloniki SKG. I could have tried to burn some AA miles but I did not want to stab myself. I found it interesting that in the UA award search engine I was seeing Air Berlin come up, WTF! I almost pulled the trigger flying Austrian Airlines so I can try their famous coffee but the routing was much longer/complicated.
Maybe I get to fly Lufthansa First Class finally on my way back to the US as it will definitely be booked within two weeks of departure, cross fingers.
My wife is going to NYC again to her brother’s. She just goes to the British Airways website and books her ticket flying AA at 15k per RT. One day we will exhaust them, so sad!
I am having some issues with my back. Specifically, two bulging discs in my lower spine. I had a cortisone shot last week per doctor’s orders, developing. I have a question. Since I sit on a chair so much, it is time to invest in a KICK ASS office chair. Any recommendations? Of course, I would like to try before I buy, please take that into account, if possible. Please let me know.
And I leave you with this…
