Why the Marriott Starwood Merger Wasn’t Smooth

and why it was unrealistic for you to have expected it to be… Before I get going, I will preface this post by saying that I work in IT. I have for the past ten years. I also happen to have specialized in projects dealing with mergers and acquisitions related technology changes, legacy systems replacement, integration and data migration. I enjoy this tremendously particularly because of all the challenges these circumstances pose to a...

Earn Alaska Airlines miles with ReachNow

I love it when airlines look for new ways to reward their members on the ground and help them earn miles. Alaska Airlines has partnered with the car share company ReachNow to grant precious Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles for each rental. What is ReachNow I suppose we should start with a quick rundown of ReachNow. If you’re not familiar, it’s a car share service that uses BWM and Mini vehicles and is a fairly typical...

Bluffworks Meridian Shirt 40% off Sale

It’s no news at this point that I like to travel light. I got a lot of practice before No Mas Coach started, when I had all the time and flexibility to travel and none of the money (and not a ton of miles yet). I had to find ways not to incur into extra fees when checking bags and overall just didn’t want to be bogged down dragging bulky luggage.   It’s been great. I’m yet to find myself in a situation...

Trials and Tribulations of Triple Citizenship

As I’m getting ready to acquire US citizenship, a coworker of mine made a comment in passing about how I will now be able to travel anywhere in the world without issues or visas. My instant reaction was to just say ‘yeah, that’d be great’, but it got me thinking. How many proverbial doors will open to me when I acquire US citizenship? As anyone who has dual citizenship, I get to enjoy the benefits of swapping...

Why do we fart so much on planes?

Why do we fart so much on planes?

As the old adage goes, he who smelt it, dealt it. The problem is that on most of the planes, there are dozens of people dealing it at the same time. Turns out there’s a real reason for it, and it’s not just the crummy airplane food. I’m sitting in a first class cabin on Alaska Airlines writing this right now and there’s a very common smell wafting around the cabin. You all know what it is. It’s poo gas! Someone is farting like a fiend...

Adios Mexico! Alaska Airlines drops Mexico City in November

When Alaska Airlines launched their Mexico City route, we were super excited. The relationship with AeroMexico was on the fritz and since we couldn’t credit any AeroMexico flights to Alaska anymore, being able to fly to the capital city was a huge benefit. We could use our companion certificates and gold guest upgrades on a route that had tons of space. Well, now we know why there was tons of space… no one is flying!...

Review: San Francisco’s Sheraton, Fisherman’s Wharf

San Francisco is one of the most expensive cities for a hotel room in the US. When we were looking to head down for a business appointment the options were looking grim. Luckily, the hotels near Fisherman’s wharf are usually quite cheap in comparison to their downtown cousins. Fisherman’s Wharf is great for shopping, dining, and a quick 15 minute drive to downtown, so staying there was super easy. The Sheraton was around $240 a night,...
