Middle East Airline Carriers and Amazon Taking Over The World. Friday Travel Tidbits.

Are the Middle East carriers taking over the travel world? Scott McCartney has an interesting article about the aggressive tactics Emirates, et al are employing to grow share from the US to destinations abroad. HT: Loyalty Lobby

Quoting from the article:

They are winning over customers with service reminiscent of the early days of flying. That means hot towels in economy, plus amenities like onboard showers in first class and a bar in business class. Etihad has flight attendants trained as flying nannies who entertain children from first class, business and economy cabins with face-painting, games, crafts and contests during flights.

The new ANA award chart seems to be a winner, specifically for flights from North America to Europe. HT: Mommy Points

Hyatt Ziva & Zilara Resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico are having a winter sale.  I enjoyed a great stay at Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos prior to the hurricane that caused significant damage.  I still need to write that up.

A new policy from Dollar Rental Car irks travelers.

Free $10 Amazon Gift Card when buying Amazon gift cards.

More Free Amazon Gift Cards.

And, if you have a Barclaycard Arrival card, potentially more free Amazon cash.

Whew, that’s a lot of Amazon.  They really are taking over the world.  I need to run, I think I hear one of their drones approaching…..
