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: NYC-SFO for ~$250. That’s a solid fare for the route. It might be a bit chilly
InsideFlyer Thread of the Day: Emirates found a way to add another 98 seats to their A380. So, they essentially added somewhere between a regional jet and a Bombardier C-Series’ worth of capacity.
Chase is making it a bit harder in some cases to move your Ultimate Rewards points. And, in some cases, a bit easier.
How long would you wait through a flight delay in order to earn elite status? Pretty interesting from a timing standpoint.
