TaggingMiles Weekly Travel News Roundup – March 13, 2015

A Season of Renewal

  • Gary of View from the Wing flew an Inaugural(!) Austin to Miami on American Airlines. Perhaps the most notable comment from his post: “…in this case we got the food without the tax.” We’d sure like to fly an inaugural – preferably an international one and in front.
  • …Now that you mention it, Joe did get to fly a Dreamliner during it’s launch year. Not an inaugural flight…but a fun ride, none the less.
  • Stefan of Rapid Travel Chai recently flew Iberia Business Class. Its a good quick read, and something we don’t often see from Stefan. Well done!

Talk Technical To Me

What’s the Big Secret?

What We Missed at FT4RL

  • Kenny at Miles4More had a great post on what he spoke about at FT4RL – Its pretty impressive that from all the puts and takes, he netted 4 figures profit from the travel he took.
  • Carolina Travel Girl also gave a good review of what we missed at FT4RL. Now we’re kind of regretting not going.
  • Meanwhile, As The (other) Joe Flies recorded a mega-podcast at FT4RL featuring a number of your favorite travel bloggers. He also got an exclusive sit-down interview with several other Saverocity family members, including Nick from PFDigest and Kenny from Miles4More.
  • After completing her second FT4RL, Dia the Deal Mommy is already planning the third! Will we see you there?

Speaking of Conventions

  • Stefan of Rapid Travel Chai shares his presentation from the latest FTU Advanced. Even without the talking points, this presentation is definitely full of great tips and tricks!
  • Plus, the New York Travel Festival is only a month away. Should be a great time, if you’re in/near/around/have the points to get to New York.

On a Serious Note

  • Mommy Points combats a rather difficult situation that has affected us all at least once. Both of us at TaggingMiles have been where Summer and her husband are – and Joe still is. We wish them great strength in this tough time, but know they will persevere and flying once again.
