While some airlines focus on how much you spend with them in order to earn elite status, American Airlines gives travelers an opportunity to earn status based on points earned from a variety of sources. In fact, you can earn elite status solely based on your credit card spend. Check out the latest offers on airline credit cards. Do you still value airline elite status, or are you a “free agent” who looks for the best deal/route?
If you’re interested in visiting smaller countries, you may not be able to fly directly into them. As we found out when doing a podcast interview about the best things to do in Monaco, some countries don’t have their own airports. Instead, you have to fly into neighboring countries and take public transit, rent a car or hire a taxi/guide to get you there.
My brother LOVES oysters, so this destination is definitely on his bucket list. Not only are you helping the environment, but you get to indulge in a foodie paradise experience unlike anywhere else in the world. If you enjoy oysters, you’ll know that a dining experience can easily cost more than $100. At this UNESCO Heritage Site, you’ll eat for free, and instead of being handed a bill, they’ll shake your hand and say thanks.
JetBlue remains optimistic that it can overcome the judicial & regulatory hurdles to complete its acquisition. However, as any smart management team would do, they’re crafting a “Plan B” to move forward without Spirit. The airline laid out this plan during its most recent quarterly earnings call to cut costs and raise revenue. They’re already offering voluntary opt-out packages to employees and looking to charge more for picking certain well-located economy seats.
Universal Studios is launching a fourth theme park in Orlando, and this one looks amazing! The new park will feature numerous worlds, including the Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Ministry of Magic, Super Nintendo World, How to Train Your Dragon — Isle of Berk and Dark Universe. If you love theme parks, you’re gonna love this addition to the mecca of theme parks. It will even include a hotel with its own entrance to the park… Universal Helios Grand Hotel is located inside the park at the end of Celestial Park.
