Best read on the travel hacking hobby today: Hawaii miles and points guide Part 1: What airlines can get you to Hawaii using miles?
The trend continues…Cathay Pacific devalues its Asia Miles program as of June 22, 2018. We are all going down…No worries, expert bloggers selling plastic will still be excited to sell you plastic!
Delta keeps doing its thing. Operationally excelling that is with earning Skymiles becoming an after thought I guess. It will fly non stop to India again and, this is important, will launch 11 transatlantic routes to Europe this summer. Azores anyone?
Another reason the hobby is not what it used to be is…these airlines. U.S. airports with budget airline flights to Europe.

Really weird to see Titan blogs all writing about the now infamous Chase 5/24 rule. But if you wanted to read more about it, here is the Doctor of Credit post with the 5/24 FAQ. What did you expect me to do, send you to a Titan blog? Can you imagine the traffic in my blog if I did that? Neither can I. Actually, I haven’t checked my blog metrics in a very long time. I need to get with the program…
In my regular TBBing duties I go to Boarding Area to see if there any new bloggers to add to my Feedly RSS feeds. While browsing it I noticed that the #1 spot holder in the infamous Blogs to Ignore list is not listed. Rene had shouted some time ago that he would leave BA if I ever made it there. But I am still here! Sooooo, what happened, anyone knows?
Plastic conversion #4 this month. Oh crap, I have not done the monthly support blog post yet! Priorities I guess.
Another song. I got a story for it. The person taping this was right in front of me. Iggy Pop is from Ann Arbor and he went to the same school as my kids! Not only that…but he was the class president lol. Then, you know, he went a little different path 🙂 It was a super fun concert. Likely contributed to my tinnitus, sad!
And I leave you with this…
