Cheap Flights To Asia And California, Restaurant Acting Badly And Lufthansa Joins Airbnb

Here’s what I’m reading about in the world of miles and points:

This just strikes me as really bad service at a restaurant.  I’ve operated restaurants/bars in DC, so I feel pretty comfortable with the various liquor laws that govern restaurants.  Underage drinking is an issue for every restaurant/bar in the US, but that’s what managers are paid to do.  They train their staff accordingly, and watch the floor diligently.

I don’t fault a restaurant like Cantina Marina for having a policy like this, though this one is much tougher to administer than just barring people under the age of 21.  Many kids don’t carry ID on them all the time.  Heck, if you don’t have a driver’s license, you might not even have ID that you would normally carry.

The manager definitely didn’t handle the situation well in making the exception, especially given his words and tone.  The subsequent apology by the restaurant was fine, but still leaves me thinking this could have been handled so much better.

Lufthansa is selling seats on Airbnb????

A Cathay Pacific Airbus A350 passenger decides to rip down a ceiling panel.  Uh, yeah.

A suitcase you can ride through the airport.  Unsurprisingly, the Kickstarter campaign seems to be running behind on delivering these suitcases to early adopters.  This isn’t the first group trying to innovate suitcases.  I saw this crazy one earlier this year at CES.  While the Modobag seems to be a bit less vaporware than the one I saw, I still don’t see a wide market for gadgets like this.

I give Mommy Points plenty of credit for being brave enough to let her 6-year old travel on her own.  I’m not quite ready for that yet.
