Here’s what I’m reading about in the world of miles and points:
Cheap Flights of the Day:
Norwegian is also still offering $150 round-trip fares to the Caribbean. Norwegian is a low-cost carrier, but they’re not horrible. I was on their inaugural flight to Martinique last year and enjoyed it reasonably well.
Martinique and Guadeloupe aren’t as popular as Grand Cayman or Aruba, but I saw enough to think that a family could string together an affordable Caribbean vacation by selecting the right hotel. You won’t find the Ritz-Carlton there, but you’ll find friendly folks, good food and cold beer.
In Case You Missed It:
Baby Born On Airplane Is Awarded One Million Miles. I could totally make use of that!
Auction Ending Soon: 3 nights in a Belize rainforest resort for roughly $100.
One flight isn’t a trend, but Lucky’s Delta experience seems to indicate the grass may not always be greener…..
A quick tip on how to get away from the in-your-face nature of the tourist areas near Niagara Falls. I agree that the area around the Falls (at least on the Canadian side) is a bit like being inside the movie Wreck-It Ralph. While we enjoyed the Sheraton on The Falls a few years ago, we definitely would have been happier traveling a bit further for meals.
Gary asks the question of whether it’s bad business for airlines to try and convince customers that giving them less service in exchange for more money is good. The short answer, I believe, is yes. The longer answer, involving shareholders, is more complicated. It’s something I plan to address in a separate post in the future. I’d say near future, but every time I say that life jumps in and smacks me upside the head. Besides, it’s unlikely airlines will pivot from ripping apart their loyalty programs and fare structures anytime soon.
Has the hotel business center become obsolete? Largely, yes. I was thinking the same thing about road atlases yesterday. Used to be you had to buy the new road atlas every year so you’d know about all the road changes.
Chase Sapphire Reserved appears to be live, and the sign-up bonus is a doozy. I’ll be covering this more in a separate post as well.
