- A wonderful article about an oft overlooked part of the premium cabin experience. The Salt and Pepper shakers.
- Turkey tourism has taken quite the hit over the past few months. I’m curious what it will do to rates long term. Certainly from a miles award standpoint, we’re seeing greater availability.
- The biggest thing this week, is the surprise move of Scott Kirby from American to United. The part I found interesting in American’s statement was the “marketability of executives.” Did American market Kirby to United
- Travel Update reports that Amazon is offering a pilot program for folks to work 30 hours a week, but accept a 25% pay cut. They get to keep their benefits, and get the flexibility of having that extra 10 hours a week to do with as they please. I like it. I’m not sure that I’d go for it at this stage in my life, but its a great concept.
Miles and Points:
- Hyatt announced their promotion for the fall, and it’s just as good as the recent spring promotion!
- Justin Ross Lee has a book out. It’s on my wishlist, merely for the title.
- Joe talks about the 5/24 guideline. The thing that I think jumps out at me the most, is the topic a lot of folks are talking about. People trying to become Chase Private Clients. Because banking at Chase, while MSing and Churning never hurt anyone.
