Air Canada Saves Sailor Floating Aimlessly

Earlier this week an Air Canada flight traveling Vancouver to Sydney received a call for help from the Australian Maritime Safety Authority after an Australian sail boat suffered damage and was drifting away from Austrailia in a remote location in the Pacific Ocean. The airliner notified passengers of the situation and staff barrowed binoculars from passengers on the flight to aid them in their search. The pilot, after deciding they had enough fuel, diverted from their course and detoured to ...

Twitter: Aeromexico is on it!

tweet1

Just about every major US airline to American Express every company is upgrading its customer service to include social media. From news updates to airfare sales to pop culture and sports,  to live updates; people are constantly tweeting. Some airlines (Delta, Alaska) are great with responding to Tweets and customers’ problems. Others, like American Airlines, is good at solving problems but also enjoy twitter banter with fellow tweeters. And  then at the bottom of the barrel ...

Aeromexico: EZE-MEX Business Class Trip Report

2012-10-02-20.41.05

Really Aeromexico? You call this Premier class?

Flying business class is supposed to be a pleasant experience. Airlines putting their best employees forward, offering you quality service and top-notch meals is typical of a business class experience. I’ve flown a number of business class products, and I honestly must say Aeromexico is not one I think I would EVER pay for again! I opted to upgrade my ticket from EZE to MEX for $500. I thought it was a good deal. Yes, $500 is ...

Alaska Airlines Continues to Grow in San Diego

san-route-map

Alaska has been extremely busy lately. They’ve announce a number of new routes in the last year (including PDX-DCA, SAN-MCO, SEA-STL, SEA-SAT and more),announced their largest Boeing plane order in history, exercised all outstanding options for their B737NG models and ordering another 37 B737-MAX, and announced new streamline seats. If this isn’t enough to keep the people at Alaska busy I don’t know what is!

However, I have insider knowledge that there are ...

Alaska Warns Consumers Before Miles Expire

I honestly think Alaska Airline has some of the best policies in place to help customers and frequent flyers when it comes to their frequent flyer program. Last month I wrote about how Alaska Airlines notified me about my funds expiring in my wallet and I was ecstatic that they gave me notice. Sure, they wanted to me spend more than what was in my wallet, but at least they told me instead of just letting the funds quietly expire. Then this week I got another email from them. This time it was ...

New Routes, New Destinations, Lay Flat Seats & More On Delta From Seattle

506517_Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card

Delta Airlines has been growing in Seattle for a number of years and even pre-merger Seattle was an important focus city for NWA with a number of international flights. Before the merger, Northwest Airlines and Alaska Airlines had a strategic partnership in place in Seattle, allowing Northwest Airlines to offer non-stop flights from Seattle to destinations such as Tokyo, Amsterdam, London, Osaka and they had announced service to Beijing. The partnership allowed for not only frequent flyer ...

Aeromexico: MEX-EZE

2012-09-27-07.49.22

Aeromexico knows how to do one thing right and that’s economy class! Unlike a number of “American” airliners, Aeromexico is still a full service airline offering everything from meals on short flights to free luggage check and alcohol, all for free! MEX-EZE is a 9 hour + flight, so alcoholic drinks, meals, and free baggage is nothing new, however, edible food and good service is a different story.

After a very pleasant stay at the Aeromexico salon, it was time to go, ...

Aeromexico Salon Premier - Mexico D.F.

2012-09-27-05.24.28

Aeromexico hosts two Premier Salons at Mexico D.F. International airport in Terminal 2; one is for international flights and the other is for domestic flights. The two lounges are nearly identical and nothing really stands out between the two. Furthermore, neither one is marked international or domestic so any normal traveler would never know the difference, unless you were denied entry, of course. On my 4 hour layover, I visited both lounges and I will review them as one because honestly ...

Another Great 3 Day Sale from Aeromexico

Every weekend for the last 3 weekends, Aeromexico has had a KILLER weekend sale! They are quickly becoming my FAVORITE airline for Latin America Travel! This weekend the fares are not as good as the previous 2 weekends but again they are pretty damn good! Honestly, South America from the USA for as little as $499 is killer!

Aeromexico is the leading airline on this high frequency route!

To Fly Or Drive?

tweet

Being based in San Diego, choosing what airport to fly from can sometime be EXTREMELY difficult. Of course, some airports are MUCH closer to home and are more convenient, but sometimes the price difference is SO large that I cannot justify flying from my local airport instead of one of the many other area airports. I grew up in a doublewide trailer and driving a little further to save some money was the way I was raised!

250 Delta MQM per 2 Day Hilton Stay

hilton

I just received an email from Delta offering me 250 FREE Medallion Qualifying Miles for signing up for their Hilton Double Dip Fall promotion! Although the email made it appear as though signing up for the promotion would result in 250 free Medallion miles, when reading the fine print it does appear as though you do actually have to stay 2 consecutive nights at a Hilton resort to actually receive the bonus MQMs. Eitherway, if you’re short on MQM this could be a good way to boost your ...

3 Seats All To Myself

seat-map-at-booking

The seat mate game and best seat on the airplane game is all but familiar to any frequent flyer. After purchasing a ticket, many of us compare the seat map on the plane to that on seatguru or expertflyer and choose the best available seat. These seats tend to be bulkhead or exit row seats, providing more leg room and greater pitch. However, last night when checking in from my flight from Mexico D.F. to Buenos Aires I came across a conundrum. The seat map was showing the plane only ...

AEROMEXICO 3 day sale: Mexico From $199 r/t, South America From $399 r/t

Aeromexico is having another killer 3 days sale allowing you to travel from a number of departure points in the USA for as little as $199! This time, the sale is slightly more costly than last weekend’s rock bottom prices, however either way these prices are UNREAL! Not to mention, I recently cashed in on the deal from LAX to EZE for only $430 (last week price) and I’m not going to lie, my service and flight from LAX to MEX and onwards to EZE were amazing! Reviews will come in the ...

MASWings: Regional Flying The Way It Should Be

2012-09-04-06.37.08

 

 Last month when traveling Borneo, I had the opportunity to take a number of domestic flights on Malaysian airlines and their regional affiliate MAS wings. Being accustomed to regional jets in the States I was prepared for no leg room, no overhead room, limited baggage space, and all the other joys that come with regional flying. However, flying MAS wings was actually a pleasant surprise!

 

My route on my MAS wing flights took me from Kota ...
