One Mile At a Time

New ANA Award Chart, Delta’s New “Sale”, And Insight Into Google Flights. Travel News I Missed Last Week

It was a crazy week of travel for me, so I got fairly far behind on my blog reading.  Here’s a few of the key posts I missed from around the world of travel this week. Google Flights is answering any and all questions.  I’ll be interested to see how deep they go, and I applaud them for doing it.  I was nervous when they took over ITA Matrix a few years ago, my favorite travel tool.  Results-oriented, I was right, but I wish I was wrong.  There have been lots of […]

A Second FREE Ticket To The San Diego Frequent Traveler University March 6th-8th!

ETA:  Winner selected in the comments!  Thanks for everyone who participated. Apparently, giving away tickets to the advanced session of Frequent Traveler University is a popular thing this week.  I’ve had another friend ask me to give their ticket away.  While they can’t make it to the Frequent Traveler University in San Diego March 6th-8th, you can win their ticket!  This may sound a bit cheesy, but it’s pretty cool to see folks helping a fellow mile junkie out. My first giveaway ends tomorrow night.  I’ll go ahead and draw […]

Airplane Seats That Don’t Recline, Airlines That Don’t Want To Save Their Miles, Airlines Downgrading Passengers To A Low-Cost Carrier and a Husband Using Miles To Solve His Wife’s Issue. Things I Find Interesting On Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Here’s a quick peek at things I found of interest today in the world of travel: Would you trade the ability to recline in your airline seat for a convenient place to mount your tablet for in-flight “self-supplied” entertainment?  Monarch Airlines, a British low-cost carrier based at Luton airport, has installed a new seat that doesn’t recline but has a spot in the seat back in front of you to mount your tablet.  HT: uggboy on Milepoint. Is one major airline deciding there’s no money in selling miles to their […]

Sometimes Good Things Come Out Of Bad Social Media

It was only a few hours ago that I posted my thoughts on the little Twitter kerfluffle from last night over One Mile At a Time’s Kickstarter project to raise money to fly in a new Etihad residence. It might be a bit of a buzz kill to folks that want to pick a fight with me on this, but I really don’t have a huge issue with what she said.  I’m a big fan of free speech and respect people’s right to express their opinions.  And, I’ve seen a […]
