Cheap Flights To Europe, A Great New Booking Tool And Don’t Lick The Walls. Really

Lots of stuff to get to this morning.  Here’s what I’m reading about in the world of miles and points:

Cheap Flights of the Day: Sub-$400 fares to everywhere in Europe from everywhere in the US are still available.  Yep, that’s what we’re talking about

In Case You Missed It: How long does it take for credit card sign-up bonuses to post?

Hyatt’s offering a discount on award redemptions!

Which way to the plane?

Ending Soon:  7 nights in a 3-bedroom villa in Mallorca going for about $750.  If the dates work for you this is a screaming deal for a beautiful place.

I missed this post when it first came out, but this looks like an awesome tool.  If you’re not familiar with Matrix, it’s like the Swiss Army knife of the airline ticketing world.  You can use it to find cheap fares to various city pairs and put together some wickedly complex itineraries.  I’ve used Matrix for years and, even though it’s been buggy since being acquired by Google, it’s still my go-to tool.  Having the ability to plug Matrix itineraries directly into an OTA will be very helpful to a bunch of folks.

A big improvement from Delta, with the news that their Global Upgrades are now valid on Virgin Atlantic flights.  One Mile at a Time has more detailed info about the new development.

A solid primer on how to fly in first class in the new world of far fewer upgrades.

United Airlines buys their way out of the jam where they bought their way out of some things.  But Smisek is still up for grabs, it seems.

Don’t lick the walls.

Dublin is the latest airport to offer US customs pre-clearance.  This is such a great plus for international travelers.  I enjoy flying back from Canada and knowing I can just hit the ground as a domestic US passenger when departing most major airports in Canada (except Billy Bishop, which is still pretty cool in its own right).

Guess how many US airlines are ranked in the Top 20 globally?  Hint: it’s not a big number.

10 Instagram accounts that will give you wanderlust.  Not to be confused with my Instagram feed, which is heavy on the food porn and donuts.  Mmmm, donuts.
