The Morning Shave

Australia Is Giving Away Free Flights to the Outback. – You know you want to visit Australia. While you’re there, why not get a free one-way flight to the Outback from Sydney, Melbourne, or Brisbane.

Why Windows Could Disappear From Airplanes in a Few Years. – Could you imagine not having a window on an airplane? This could be incredibly freaky on long flights. They say there would be cameras and backup systems, but how often does every bit of technology work properly on a flight? Almost never. Hmm.

Southwest Airlines Offering Status Matches To Their A-List Elite Status. – There aren’t too many benefits to Southwest’s upper tier of status, but why not get it free while you can. You’ll get bonus points on paid flights, free wi-fi, and priority rebooking if the flight is canceled. This is why I wrote a discussion on whether or not A-List is worth it?

Delta Flash Sale Award Tickets. – Killer deal on Delta award tickets starting at 11K miles for domestic flights and 33K miles to Europe. Selection is limited and purchases must be made by June 13, 2018, for travel in Q1 2019.

You Have to See These Boutique Treehouse Hotels in Sweden. – What a fun and unique travel experience. I usually prefer luxury hotels, but switching things up once in awhile for a great story to share with friends over a beer is totally worth it.

  1. Windowless planes coming? Uh, not so fast. One guy at one airline things it’s a swell idea, but he doesn’t manufacture commercial airliners, no one elsewhere at any passenger airline has chimed in and, as far as research can determine, no plans to make windowless planes are under serious consideration. Click-bait crapola.
