8 Business Class Seats To Australia! SPG Expansion in Las Vegas And American Has Too Much Money

The Best of the Rest is my effort to summarize all the travel/miles & points stories that interested me on a daily basis but didn’t have time to write about  in length.  Culled from over 100 blogs/authors I follow, some are passed along without comment, while I add my analysis to others.   This is your shortcut to find out what’s going on in the travel world without having to read dozens of travel blogs to get all the best info.

Here’s what I’m reading about today:

Cheap Flights of The Day: Big discounts to/from Canada on Porter.  $184 to Vancouver from LAX on a bunch of airlines (one of our favorite cities).  New York to SFO for $250.  $300 to Barbados.

InsideFlyer Thread of the Day:  Should you get offered a drink on really short flights?

Take a look at this.  She scored 8 business class seats to Australia!!!  In peak season, no less!  I’ll need to sneak some tips from her for the Qantas F redemption I managed to grab for later in 2016.

American Airlines: We have too much money.  Don’t we all?

Starwood is taking over the SLS in Las Vegas.  Well, part of it.  That’ll be a little weird, but it’s a great addition to the SPG collection.  I don’t love the location (this is the old Sahara) but the building is beautiful.

Forgot to post this follow-up.  What was actually wrong with that bathroom I posted about a few days ago?
