Are you ready for winter? Just think, the darkest day of the year is less than 8 weeks away and then we once again start to slowly gain light (you have to be Scandinavian to really get what this means). We are also likely only weeks away from some kind of Delta news of what “enhancements” will come to SkyMiles. Will there be any more bomb shell announcements? I would not be surprised one bit. But that is what is next and this month has been just crazy. Take a look for yourself!
