The Morning Shave

TSA Considering Merging PreCheck and Global Entry Programs. – Because Global Entry is only $3 a year more expensive, this makes total sense.  Plus, it could encourage more people to travel internationally, and I’m a big believer that people should explore other cultures more often.

One airline has launched… holiday sweaters? – Holiday sweaters used to be a joke on someone… and somehow the tables have turned and these ugly sweaters are now part of the joke.  It’s is now cool to be uncool.  Either way, let’s have some fun.

Many US Airlines Now Banning Smart Luggage. – Yeah, it turns out putting a cheap, unstable battery inside a suitcase with highly flammable clothing and then locking it underneath a plane traveling 30K feet in the air was a bad idea.  Who would have thought that?  Charlie returned his “smart” luggage over a year ago.

Marriott International Signs New Co-Brand Credit Card Agreements with JPMorgan Chase and American Express. – Great news for credit card junkies.  No changes to existing cards and they’ll be launching new cards for us to apply for on both platforms in the coming years.  Win-win!

You’ve Been Sleeping on Planes All Wrong. – Excellent tips for getting better sleep during your next flight, even if you’re only flying Economy.  My favorite tip that they didn’t mention is this… if you can, do not place any bags under the seat in front of you.  Having that extra leg room to stretch out a bit can make all the difference in the world.
