- Scott, over at Travel Codex lost his father a couple of weeks ago. He shares a pretty powerful post about his Father’s passing, and some of the lessons the experience has taught him.
- Matt, Allison and Dylan did a pretty epic cruise around the southern tip of South America, here’s the first segment, courtesy of the writer in the family..
- Seth keeps adding more fun tools. This one, a tool to identify where widebodies fly domestically. Why does this matter? Well, most times, it means a more comfortable ride, sometimes even an international configured aircraft with a layflat business class product (that might even be a free complementary upgrade!)
- The future of First Class, via Airways News. An interesting read, unfortunately, a bit dire for those that enjoy the ultra premium cabin.
