A friend just asked for some help reorganizing their wallet. Their credit card choices had become outdated and they had way too many points they didn’t have any immediate use for. I was stunned when I found out he had amassed four million Marriott Bonvoy points from credit card spend. I’ll admit, I think I cried just a little bit. One of the cards I suggested he get is the American Express Gold card. I think this is a real sweet spot for many folks, which I’ll dig into in […]
I think the American Express Gold Card is a great fit for many families. The bonus categories align very well with areas where families spend plenty of cash. Here’s why I added the card to my wallet.
Remember the olden days of the US Airways Grand Slam promotion? This won’t get you back to those heights, but you might score a few free miles. If you’re trying to earn bonus miles for family travel, it’s worth taking a peek to see if you can add a few miles here and there.
Food is generally an after-thought when I’m in an airport. There might be “better” choices in a terminal, but I rarely find must-have choices in airports. Air Canada blew my mind this week. I can only hope this becomes the new standard for food quality in airport lounges.
This was my first time flying Austrian Airlines but I hope it won’t be my last. I redeemed United Airlines MileagePlus miles for 4 business class seats for our family’s return trip from Europe.
The seats, service and meals all exceeded our expectations. I’ll cover all of these areas in detail along with plenty of pictures. I’m happy to answer any questions about Austrian Airlines’ business class product.
The best fact about DFW Airport I can remember is that the land area of the airport is larger than Manhattan. It’s an incredibly large airport housing the largest US-based airline. And, it’s getting a much-needed facelift in its older terminals.
Getting around Athens airport is very easy. It’s a mostly modern, clean airport with plenty of shopping and dining as well as a children’s play area. There’s public transportation and a hotel onsite.
