Seattle is testing a new system that lets travelers make a reservation at the TSA checkpoint. – I love TSA PreCheck because it saves time and hassle when going through airport security. But, at some airports, even the TSA PreCheck lines are long. This new reservation system could make it even easier to skip the long lines. Or, you could always get CLEAR to speed yourself through security! Use my referral link to get a 2-month free trial.

This Airline Study Ranked Southwest No. 1 in 2020 — Here’s Why. – I LUV Southwest and am happy to see them get recognition. Like all airlines, there are places that they can improve. But, I’m super happy with my Companion Pass and good flight availability out of Nashville.

Startup Avelo Airlines announces new East Coast base just 1 week after launch. – My buddy Ben Komenkul just flew Avelo out of SoCal, and he had good things to say about it. More competition for the big airlines will help to keep prices low for all of us, no matter which airline you fly.

Is This Capital One’s Best Transfer Partner? – While Amex and Chase usually get all the fanboys, Capital One has quietly been building a strong lineup of transfer partners over the past couple of years.
