Several US Senators had stern words for Delta and JetBlue — for how the carriers took CARES Act money but cut employee hours.

Plus, Dr. Beach announced what he thinks is the best US beach.

We’ll get to those stories and more in a few minutes. But first, here’s a quick recap of this week at Rene’s Points!

The week started off with a bang on Sunday morning. A reliable source told us Delta may retrofit some planes to an all-Delta One configuration.

It’s been reported that Ethiad may get rid of their A350s. You know that Delta’s ears must’ve perked up. They do love themselves a used jet deal.

As of post time, this great deal on compression socks is still available (in case you’re interested).

Apply promo code COMPSOCK50! and apply the 5% instant savings coupon!

What do you think? Should Delta SkyMiles gifts be a way we can thank Delta employees? (Similar to Job Well Done certs.)

That idea came on the heels of Rene’s post about ways you can burn your miles — with virtual experiences. (Um, no thanks.)

A New York couple decided to visit Costa Rica for their third date. They’ve been stuck there for two months.

Las Vegas launched its new ad campaign this week — and you can watch the video here.

Chase and United relaunched their Club Infinite card — and are waiving the $525 annual fee for the first year. I asked if you would sacrifice bonus miles if a credit card waived its annual fee.

One airline’s CEO ain’t joking around when it comes to wearing masks — and said his carrier will divert flights if people don’t comply.

Disney World might have a bunch of guests soon: the entire NBA.

A Delta Air Lines Boeing 717-200 tail number N993AT is seen parked at a Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) gate at Terminal 3.
