We’re Back! And We Missed You

Hello y’all! It’s good to be here 🙂 And it’s good to be back. It’s been a whirlwind few months with Covid and we’ve seen a lot of changes in the travel space. Rest assured, all your emails of “are you still alive” have been received, and we appreciate the support. We took about a month off to refresh and regroup, even heading out on a few vacations (remember what those were?) and will have...

American Airlines 737 MEX-DFW Review

American Airlines offers a “domestic” service on what is very obviously an “international” route, and disappointed on many levels. Here’s a review the underwhelming flight. Perhaps you can use this and learn that just because you’re crossing an international border, it doesn’t mean that you’re going to get a true international service. Mexico City to Dallas is short enough, luckily, that we were back in the states and on our way...

Alaska Airlines Service and Catering during Covid-19

Each Airline is taking their Covid-19 situation slightly differently. Alaska Airlines seems to be taking it a step further, rolling out a “Next Level Care” operation that takes into account everything from cleaning to touch points in the airport.  Alaska Airlines’ policies on Covid will remain in effect until October 31st, but I imagine they’re going to be extended past that. An empty plane! Onboard...

One hotel chain is turning over 500 locations into voter registration centers, allowing you to register to vote when you check-in. What’s ESA? ESA, or Extended Stay America, is a chain of long-term hotel stays...

American Airlines Snuck in Negative Changes to their Fee Waivers

Unless you were living under a rock for the past 36 hours, you’ve by now noticed that the three legacy carriers in the United States, American, Delta, and United, all eliminated the fee waivers for domestic flights for 2021 and beyond. While this was heralded as a huge win for customers, not all was perfect.  Delta and United still will charge you for International changes to Canada and Mexico, and American Airlines slipped...

Airline Change Fees Waivers Mostly a Marketing Ploy

Recently American, Delta and United all instituted their own versions of new change fee waivers, something that they’ve already had in place for months due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  Each airline has a different type of fee waiver, so just because the headline says “FEE WAIVERS FOREVER” doesn’t mean you ticket is included.  For me, the waiver is a nice gesture, but something that seems more like a...
