@Delta & @AeromexicoUSA Complimentary Upgrades and Upgrade Certificates

With all the recent schedule changes and the announcement that Delta Medallion members would receive both complimentary upgrades on Aeromexico flights as well as the ability to apply both types of Upgrade Certificates to flights operated by Aeromexico,  I logged in to see if any other flights had been affected. Flight changes are not uncommon … Continue reading “@Delta & @AeromexicoUSA Complimentary Upgrades and Upgrade Certificates”

More Norwegian Deals!

Since my last post on Norwegian airlines, I’ve received two more emails with some really tempting deals. The first email was for expanded fights to Europe (from larger airports, this time around), while the second was from the East Coast to the French Caribbean. Are any of you going to take advantage of these sales? … Continue reading “More Norwegian Deals!”

Escorting Planes in Bologna

Just recently, a good friend of mine in San Diego returned from a vacation in Italy and had a very interesting picture to share with me. While at the Bologna airport, he noticed planes being led by a Lamborghini on the tarmac. Apparently this is a common occurrence because of Lamborghini’s relationship with the region … Continue reading “Escorting Planes in Bologna”

Excellent Fares on Norwegian

Even though there is reason to be worried about flying (Ultra) Low Cost Carriers like Ryan Air and Monarch, particularly with the news of late, there isn’t reason to rule them out altogether. Norwegian is running quite a nice deal for those living on the East Coast who are looking to get to Europe. This … Continue reading “Excellent Fares on Norwegian”

Instead of needing the $25,000 spend on your Delta-branded American Express card, you will now need $250,000. As most of my MQD are accrued by flight purchases thanks to work … Continue reading “@Delta 2019 Medallion Qualification Change”

Delta Schedule Change Fallout

Schedule changes are really no surprise in the travel game, but they are decidedly not fun. A few days ago I received an automated call from Delta to let me know that there was a schedule change that would make one of my connections in an upcoming trip illegal. Taking a deep breath, I logged … Continue reading “Delta Schedule Change Fallout”

@Delta’s Narrow Wide-Body, the Domestic 767-300

Recently I had the opportunity to fly on what I like to refer to (affectionately, of course) as a narrow wide-body. Delta has a handful of Boeing 767-300 (not ER or LR, mind you) that have their first class in a 2x2x2 configuration. These seats are standard recline only, not angled or lie-flat as other … Continue reading “@Delta’s Narrow Wide-Body, the Domestic 767-300”
