Book an Alaska Airlines Flight and the Price Dropped? You Can Get the Difference Back!

While most airlines charge an arm and a leg to change or cancel a flight, Alaska Airlines has one of the more generous policies. Recently I wrote about JetBlue‘s policy if a flight went down in price and many readers were asking about what other airlines have a similar policy.

Nothing Expected in Luxembourg.

Day 1:: Luxembourg After a 9 hour flight from ChicagoI landed in London Heathrow, it was only 5:55am local time and my connecting flight was not until 8:20am. At least it would look like a very decent amount of time to connect considering I didn‘t have any checked bags and had my boarding pass ready. Totally forgot how strict and busy Heathrow is. It was such a long walk to get to my boarding area, those hallways just seemed not to have an

Wells Fargo Go Far Rewards Program Changes (Effective October 7)

Good morning everyone. Yesterday, I received a letter from Wells Fargo about upcoming changes to the Wells Fargo Go Far Rewards Program, effective October 7. The letter was dated on September 11, so Wells Fargo gave us less than a month notice about the upcoming changes. The changes do not appear too drastic, but I am not a heavy Wells Fargo Go Far Rewards customer, so these changes do not affect me. Here is the full letter with a few important p

FINALLY: China Is Lifting Their Ban On Using Smartphones In-Flight

As I‘ve written about in the past, one of the most annoying aviation policies (at least as a passenger) is that you‘re not allowed to use smartphones or tablets on Chinese airlines, whether you‘re on the ground and the door is open, or you‘re in the air. Yes, you can‘t use your smartphone or tablet even in airplane mode. It‘s a ridiculous policy, especially given that some Chinese airlines have wifi nowadays. S

Brussels Airlines: An Example Of A European Airline Successfully Adapting

Europe is one of the easiest places to get around by airplane. Flights are insanely cheap, sometimes to the point that they‘re cheaper than a Subway sandwich. Last year I got a 9 roundtrip ticket from Gothenburg to London Stansted with Ryanair. Given the increased competition, traditional airlines are adopting low-cost models. Most notably, British Airways cut their free food and drinks and now offers "no-frills" fares just like their low-c

Is it a keeper? My take on BOA‘s new Premium Rewards Card

Bank of America‘s new card was originally expected to be an ultra-premium card.
