First things first: if you’re traveling in the Upper Midwest — especially through Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) — this weekend, please be aware of the waiver Delta has in effect Saturday and Saturday.
Now, on with the show!
I hope you enjoyed at least some of the holiday week! I was in Fargo and on my way back home to the warmer weather and hideous traffic of Southern California 🙂 .

But first: our final weekly recap of 2019!
Prepping for 2020!
The new Medallion qualification year starts Wednesday. René has some ideas (as do some helpful readers in the post’s comment section) about ways to meet Delta Amex spending requirements.
Rene’s Mileage Run
René started his weekend by starring in a Washington Post feature about mileage running! Then he took a mileage run to Brussels for dinner. (Hey, they have great mussels over there!)
He saw a Delta gate agent provide great service in Detroit. He started the run in Las Vegas — and used a Regional Upgrade Certificate (RUC) to get a nice, cushy seat up front.
On a somewhat related note, make sure to read his post about paying an entire mega-trip with points.
Speaking of which…
A Lesson Learned
One of my family members lost out on several thousand easy points — simply because he didn’t have the right credit card. Learn from his mistake.
Two fashion-related topics came up this week: Should People Dress Up for Flights? and Should Airline Crews Be Allowed to Dress Up for Holidays?
What Are You Watching?
A recent article uncovered the most popular movies and TV shows on several major airlines this year. And Wonderfully Ale (one of my favorite YouTubers) proudly showed off her airline’s new logo and plane interior.
