Wyndham boosts its all-inclusive footprint. – Dust off those Wyndham points. With this new agreement, there are now 15 new all-inclusive properties available for members to redeem points at. Four properties in Mexico are available now, and 11 more in Mexico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Brazil will be added in August and September. Could be an excellent use of Capital One Venture Rewards transfers, depending on how much those rooms cost.
These Two U.S. Airlines Have Plans to Make Flying in Coach Better. – While we all love flying in Business and First Class, the reality is that most of our flights are in Economy. And Southwest is our favorite domestic airline with its Companion Pass. So, it’s good to see that Southwest and United are making improvements to their Economy class options for those of us with limited budgets.
The 20 Most Mispronounced Places in the World. – As much as I try to learn a bit of the local language wherever we travel, I know that I totally butcher some of those words. And those tongue-brain mishaps extend to the names of certain destinations that are on my bucket list. Which of these locations do you get wrong?
Global Entry flyers will speed through some airports even faster now. – Global Entry already saves so much time and frustration when returning from international travel. It’s nice to see that they’re eliminating those paper printouts (at select locations to start). It’s available at 10 locations now and more are rolling out later this month.
JetBlue flyers, you now have lounge access — with the right credit card. – JetBlue and AA flyers already share a lot of benefits when flying with the other airline. Now, JetBlue travelers gain access to the Admirals Club lounges if they have the Citi AAdvantage Executive Card. However, JetBlue Mint and Mosaic passengers still don’t have access (yet).
