The Morning Shave

Ryanair Accused of ‘Intimidating’ Passengers Trying to Claim Compensation for Canceled Flights. – Seriously?  But would you expect anything less from a low-cost carrier like this?  For most people, consider yourself lucky that you don’t have to fly them.

Travelers Find Hidden Camera in Their Airbnb’s Smoke Detector. – Absolutely disgusting.  Although an isolated incident, these types of things are a major concern in a system like AirBnB vs a hotel where the environment is more controlled.

If I stay at an AirBnB, I’m going to inspect the fire detectors carefully to be sure we’re not being watched.

5K/10K more Membership Rewards or $50 back with Boxed offer. – Easy opportunity to get a bunch of Amex points.

Hilton Plans to Add 100 Properties to Its Africa Portfolio over the Next Five Years. – If Africa is on your travel to-do list, then this is great news.  I was at a conference recently where a Marriott exec also talked about their plans to expand on the African continent in the short-term.

Delta Doesn’t Actually Want Anyone to Buy Basic Economy. – Totally true.  For basically the same product, they want you to pay more for standard or premium fares to fatten their profitability.  That being said, I still wouldn’t buy a basic fare, would you?
