Here’s what I’m reading about today in the world of travel:
Cheap Flights of the Day: If you’re in an Alaska Air city on the west coast, there are fares as low as $69 one-way to places you actually want to visit. How about Hawaii for under $400? United has also started a bit of a fare war for flights to Hong Kong.
In Case You Missed It: Have you seen those Fuel Rod kiosks in a handful of airports? Ever wonder whether the batteries are any good? I’ve got the answer.
Easy free Starpoints! Make sure to check your SPG Dashboard.
Who would have thought that Greyhound would be the cheapest way to move your stuff cross-country?
Iberia is the latest airline to recognize that pregnant moms might be worthwhile candidates for some special consideration on elite status. This just makes way too much sense. I’m sure some airlines will find reasons not to follow along, but if there was ever a “me too” moment for them to follow each other….
A Boeing 767 sets sail on the ocean to become a hotel. Because isn’t that what all planes do when they’re retired?
Congress has a solution for how to fix those long lines at TSA checkpoints. If the airlines would just stop charging for checked bags, these senators claim the lines would be shorter. Look, I don’t like bag fees (though I rarely check a bag). But, telling private companies they should make less money to make up for government ineptitude? Yeah, chew on that one for a while.
