Airlines Are Making Bold Bets on Continued Strong Demand.

American Airlines and Delta Air Lines are taking the lead by expanding their routes and destinations for 2024. This is an excellent sign for the economy amid expectations that consumers and businesses will continue the strong demand for flights. Hopefully, this will lead to some softening in fares and award availability. But, that’s still up in the air. Are you planning to travel more next year?

Book by Saturday: United offers Pacific award sale with flights starting at 40,000 miles.

These Are the World’s Strongest Liquors.

One of the great joys of traveling is sampling local food and drinks that you can’t order in the U.S. This list of the world’s strongest liquors will make you happy to take public transportation or book a taxi to get back to your hotel. Many of these liquors are so strong that you cannot bring them back to the U.S. So, book your flight and enjoy them while you can during your trip. Then, be sure to take a couple of aspirin and a glass of water before going to bed to avoid a nasty hangover in the morning.

As a Hyatt loyalist, here’s why Europe is more appealing than ever.

Hyatt may have one of the smallest footprints of the major hotel brands, but it taking steps to expand. When a brand has fewer hotels, it is harder to find properties at the destination that meet your budget. This also makes it more difficult to earn elite status. Hyatt continues to expand in Europe, recently acquired the Apple Leisure Group and Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and announced a partnership with Lindner hotels in Germany. With so much activity, you’ll find it much easier to book a Hyatt stay for your next vacation.
