The Morning Shave

Hertz sharply devalues its loyalty program with little warning to members. – Loyalty with rental car companies is almost worthless. As far as I’m concerned, the only status you should have with rental car companies is what you get from credit cards.

Why You Should Never Swap Seats on a Plane. – Unless it’s children trying to sit next to their parents, I never swap seats. As much as I love my wife, I can survive sitting apart from her for six hours while we fly to our destination. Besides, she’ll be sleeping the entire time while I either read or watch a movie.

For the Ultimate Dolly Parton Experience, You Can Now Book a Stay on the Music Legend’s Tour Bus. – Dolly Parton is a national treasure, and now you can stay in her tour bus to bask in her greatness. It will cost you $10,000 for the unique experience, and the money goes to The Dollywood Foundation.

Ryanair boss O’Leary says the era of €10 flights is over. – With fuel prices higher and low-cost carriers either going out of business or merging with larger airlines, there is less competition for cheap fares. Although I typically avoid LCC airlines, their low fares cause major airlines to keep a lid on prices. Bottom line… airfares will increase.

This Iconic Flight Snack Has Been Around Since the 1980s — and It’s Still the Best Treat in the Sky. – I always look forward to grabbing some Biscoff cookies when we fly. They taste better than airline pretzels, and Anna loves having them with her coffee. I grab a couple of extra cookies to save for later, do you?
