The Morning Shave

Alaska Airlines opens JFK lounge. – Always exciting when new lounges open up! You can usually enter Alaska lounges with Priority Pass (when they’re not too full). I like the option of craft beers, while Anna will swoon over the Starbucks-trained baristas.

Hawaii Is Giving Away Free Trips to Stressed-out New Yorkers. – Hey, the rest of the country is pretty stressed out too! Where are our free trips to Hawaii? I guess we’ll just have to use 12,500 Avios each way while we wait until Southwest starts flying.

How much fart is on your plane at any given time? – Oh boy, that is a lot of farting! Must be the pressurization or something.

Marriott/SPG Devaluation: Fears confirmed at Freddies. – Tough position to be in, you have all of this access to top-level airline and hotel Execs. You want to ask them questions, but you also have to be careful not to divulge some of our “secrets” so that they don’t “fix” the sweet spots. Either way, the cat is out of the bag, and more bad news is confirmed.
