The Morning Shave
When does it make sense to buy points and miles? – Airlines and hotels offer “sales” all the time to encourage members to buy points and miles. In most cases, it isn’t worth buying them unless the bonus is big enough. Generally, the only time you should buy them is if you need just a few points to book a flight or hotel room. What are your thoughts?
American Airlines bets on supersonic travel with Boom jet deal. – Airline travel is about to get much faster if these planes become a viable option. United and American have placed initial orders for Boom jets, which could cut the flight time between Miami and London almost in half (from 9 hours to 5 hours). Definitely a plus for Economy passengers, but sad to lose extra time being spoiled in Business or First.
The world’s most breathtaking clifftop hotels. – Some people only need a room to sleep in while on vacation and don’t care about the view. Others want a beautiful room with a view to match. These rooms are gorgeous and have even better views. Have you stayed at any of these properties and are there any other properties that you think should be on this list?
Frontier Airlines Boosts International Flying Out Of Atlanta Base. – Even though Frontier lost out on its attempt to acquire Spirit, it isn’t moping around and feeling sorry for itself. The airline continues to expand with five new international destinations from ATL to attract consumers with its low-cost approach. Even if you don’t plan to fly Frontier, its entry to these routes could force other airlines to reduce prices to compete for passengers.
Business Travelers Set to See Air Fares Rise by 8.4%, Hotel Rates by 8.2%, and Car Rental Charges by 6.8% in 2023. – We know that business travel has been down the last two years. And airlines, hotels, and rental car companies know that they need to go out and visit clients to make up for the lost time. So, business travelers should expect to pay more in the short run as travel companies have limited supply versus a surge in travel demand.
