Watch Out: Delta Now Gives You Basic Economy When You Redeem Miles on Many Routes. – Be careful when booking Delta award flights, otherwise, you may find yourself sitting in a middle seat in the back of the plane.

Centurion Lounge Seattle Temporarily Closing March 11, 2019. – This is super lame. I’m flying into Seattle this weekend for FTU Seattle (tickets still available! save $35 with my promo code and link) then headed to Salt Lake City for snowboarding on Monday. I was looking forward to checking out the lounge… but of course, that’s the day the Centurion Lounge is closed. At least I can visit it upon arrival. Be aware that new restrictions for entrance start March 22nd.
Best things to do in Melbourne. – I interview Abby Lewtas to learn where you can see penguins on the beaches of Australia. I could listen to Australian accents all day. What about you?
