The Morning Shave

Reagan National getting a new concourse. – It’s a good thing when airports expand to provide a better experience for travelers.

Is Amex increasing exceptions to their Once Per Lifetime Rule? – This would be awesome because I’ve had just about every Amex card available, and I’m running out of options.



Thieves Stealing Air Miles? – A reminder to keep your accounts secure and watch your balances for anything out of the ordinary.  I use AwardWallet to keep track of my balances and love their weekly update on activity (miles earned and redeemed).

You’ve Been Using Escalators Wrong. – I almost never stand on an escalator.  I’m always rushing to a meeting or to catch my next plane.  It annoys the heck out of me when people just stand on the left. And when you say “excuse me” as the polite way of saying “get the hell out of my way” so many Americans just look at you give attitude like you called their baby ugly or something.

Major Changes at LAX for 21 Airlines Coming in May. – LAX is chaotic enough and the traffic is horrible.  If you can, stay away from LAX during the months of May and June.  You’ll thank me later.

Cathay Pacific Arrival Lounge Hong Kong. – I love checking out international lounges.  They are usually far better than what you’ll find in even the best domestic lounges.

POSTMATES – FREE $100 in Delivery Credit. – Wow, it’s hard to turn down $100.  I’ll have to figure out how I want to spend it!
