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: You still have about a week to purchase discounted miles for cheap business class travel to Europe. Or, $500 tickets to South America from the West coast.
InsideFlyer Thread of The Day: If you’re a Marriott elite (not a SPG elite) what do you think of the merger with SPG?
Southwest Airlines has had a pretty solid run of labor peace, but that’s been quietly changing. Why your Thanksgiving plans might be disrupted.
Southwest is also running holiday promotions through their shopping portal as well, as much as 5,500 points. And, not much time left on the AAdvantage holiday shopping promo for 5,000 bonus miles.
Get a chuckle out of United Airlines’ holiday video.
