The Morning Shave

More competition landing in the California Corridor? – Living in Southern California, seeing more entrants into the semi-private luxury market makes me so happy.  I love being able to fly premium planes for about the price of an Economy ticket.  Let’s see what the prices are when they start flying in April 2018.

So You CAN Use a Visa to Pay Your Mortgage with Plastiq. – While it is possible, this isn’t good for most people.  The fees are simply too high compared to the miles you will earn… unless you are working to hit a minimum spend bonus or are able to get free spend by referring other people to Plastiq.  If you’re going to join Plastiq, please use my referral code “531866” to get $500 in fee-free dollars.


Chicago O’Hare Airport offers Flu Shots! – If you’re traveling through Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, stop by and grab a flu shot.  It’s about to be flu season and you don’t want a cold to interfere with your travel plans.  There’re few things in life worse than the pain from an earache when the cabin pressurizes.

A Toy Grenade Set Off a Bomb Scare at Miami International Airport. – You can’t be too careful nowadays.  But, seriously, parents should know better than to let their kid travel with such a toy.

Delta installing lie-flat seats on more domestic routes. – This is epic news!  I rarely upgrade to First Class on domestic routes because it just isn’t worth the extra miles when the seat won’t recline to a lie-flat position.  This is especially true when you’re taking a red-eye from the West Coast to the East Coast or the Caribbean so you don’t lose a day for travel.
