ME3 Business Class Deals: Asia to Europe from $1,400

When you think of the the Big Three Middle Eastern airlines (Emirates, Qatar, and Etihad), you probably think of blingy, over-the-top experiences. To be honest, you wouldn’t be entirely wrong either. It’s part of what makes them so much fun. While business class deals on Qatar aren’t that rare, Emirates are usually harder to come by. When an Emirates deal pops up, people run. Well, put on your running shoes,...

Hyatt’s Best Rate Guarantee: Stud or Dud?

When it comes to hotel best rate guarantees, I’m usually pretty skeptical. Hotels always seem to find some loophole or make it prohibitively difficult to avoid honoring it. In the end, they’re usually nothing more than a good marketing tool. Typically, I’ve avoided using guarantees for those reasons. If the price is close, I’ll book through the hotel’s site. This still allows me to enjoy elite benefits...

Japan Airlines Sale: US to Asia in Business Class from $1,800

Let’s face it, flights from the US to Asia are long. Until teleportation becomes a thing, you’re looking at a minimum of 10 hours from the west coast and 13 hours from the east coast. On flights that long, having a flat bed to sleep in makes a huge difference. However, unless you’ve got a stockpile of points, you’re usually looking at $4,000+ for that privilege. Even then, you might be looking at a less...

Reminder: Only a Few Days Left for the Amex Virgin Atlantic Transfer Bonus

Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club is often an overlooked program. Their program passes along carrier surcharges and flights out of London carry steep taxes. However, the airline has some really cool niche redemptions that can make Flying Club an incredibly valuable program in the right situation. To make things even better, Amex is currently offering a transfer bonus to Flying Club, allowing you to unlock some great points...

The Never-Ending Status Dilemma

The Never-Ending Status Dilemma

When you think elite status, you probably think upgrades, lounge access, priority check-in, and top-notch treatment. The higher status you hold, the better treatment you get. That all that sounds great, so why wouldn’t you want to hold elite status with an airline? Unfortunately, just focusing on elite status can overlook another important part of the equation – airline miles. While elite status comes with some great...

The Sky Is NOT Falling: Thoughts on Hyatt’s New Award Rates

If you’ve been around any of the travel blogs over the past week or so, you may have noticed a bit of a freak out over some changes Hyatt is making to their award program. If you haven’t, surprise!

The real one in Munich. While I’d been to Munich before, this was my first time going to Oktoberfest. Was it spitze or schlecht? Well, judging by the title, you can probably guess… What’s so great about Oktoberfest? Munich is already one...
