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


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.


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!

To Fly Or Drive?


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


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


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



 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 ...

PAGSS Lounge Manila: Home to Many Airlines


Lounge Membership comes with a price, however the best part of traveling internationally is most international airports have a Diners club lounge! My Diner’s Club card, provided by my work, allows me free access to these lounges while traveling! Although this does very little for me in the United States, due to the limited numbers, it’s great when traveling outside the country.

On my trip home from Manila, I had a chance to check out the PAGSS lounge at MNL. This ...

A Free Upgrade to GOLD

This morning I woke up to a very interesting email form Marriott. The subject read “You’ve been Upgraded”. I have no current reservations with the Marriot so I knew there was no way I was getting a notification that a room I had booked was being upgraded to a suite. Ready to delete the email without giving it any thought, I decided to open the email instead, thinking to myself that it was just another announcement of a change to their program or a promotion they were ...

ATTENTION: Your Credit will Expire soon!


Again and Again Alaska Airline has proven to be one of my favorite airlines bringing not only topnotch customer service to every flight, but doing things for passengers that other airlines do not. Being in the industry to make buck, I feel like airlines favorite thing to do is either let your miles expire or your electronic credit voucher expire without notice, leaving it up to you to know the details and the fine print.

Alaska Air, like most airlines, only allows ECV to be good ...
