The Morning Shave

After Peaking in May, Airfares Continue to Drop. – Excellent news for travelers paying cash or booking flights with miles on airlines with dynamic pricing. While demand for flights is still high after two years of COVID, prices are coming down as the cost of gasoline continues to drop. If you’re flying on an airline that offers free rebooking or cancellation, review your flights to see if you can save money or miles by rebooking your reservations.

Delta Is Making This Big Change to How You Board Its Flights, Starting Now. – The longer an airplane sits on the ground, the less money an airline makes. Even saving a couple of minutes adds up quickly when you’re operating thousands of flights each day. I can’t wait to check out this “Parallel Reality” technology when it spreads to other airports.

Munich Airport installs high-rope activity course for passengers. – This is such a cool idea! Airports continue to upgrade the experience for travelers who are waiting to catch their next flight. Sadly, this installation is only running through September 11, 2022. I might have to book a flight to Munich just to experience it myself. Hopefully, it will be so popular that they decide to extend its run or make it permanent.

If you’re going to see a ritual, show appropriate respect. – One of the best things about traveling is being able to experience and learn about other cultures. As the article says, you need to respect the locals and show proper respect. Set aside your “American persona” and embrace the local culture, even if it’s just for the ritual’s duration. I guarantee that you’ll have a better travel experience.

Guide to Hyatt All Inclusive Resorts. – As a new Hyatt Globalist, I’m still learning about all the benefits I receive for my elite status. One of the more alluring parts of the Hyatt brand is the incredible all-inclusive resorts you can redeem points at, especially with their new partnerships. My buddy Ross does a great job summarizing the Hyatt all-inclusive options in this article. This guide will come in handy when Anna and I visit the Hyatt Zilara in Cancun later this year.

  1. Glad to hear you’ve joined the Globalist family. Come on in, the water’s just fine. My wife and I just got back from the HR in Merida, Mexico and for a Globalist this place is a gem: Category 1, breakfast buffet until noon (yes, really), located a US$2.50 cab ride from the historic center, okay swimming pool, great staff, and club lounge heavy snacks/dinner and drinks from 5-8 every night. That’s great value.

    • Yup, I’ve been watching Hyatt for awhile and Kimpton was my primary focus. But, my Kimpton friends and I have noticed a considerable downgrade in service and benefits over the years, so I’m exploring other brands. I’ve heard good things about that Merida location.
