Ten days ago I post that NOW is the best time to book any needed 2019 elite Delta elite mileage runs you may need. The deals that have been found this week have been just epic. Low cost and amazing returns. Oh and most of them in business class that make a “fun run” so much better. Some of the runs have even worked to start 2020 that would result in status for 2020 AND for 2021 ending 1FEB2022 (yes, this is correct believe it or not). So what did you miss? Take a look

Summer headlines are kinda wacky this week. Take a gander at the travel news stories that caught my attention as “click worthy” headlines:

So tell me, have you booked any mileage runs this month? Are you going to? Have you given up on Delta elite status with all the changes? What about others travel bits we maybe missed? Please comment below and please do include a link if it is to a travel story. – René




  1. I have gone through your links three times, is this bait and switch?

    Your headline reads:
    Delta passenger strikes crew – but no such article exists…

  2. @Bob – Very first news headline above! Delta Direct flight from Indy to Paris diverts to Detroit due to ‘unruly passenger’ – Punching and biting passengers!
