Here’s a classic clip: A Southwest flight attendant encouraged passengers to wave to a United flight and “show them what a full aircraft looks like.”
And a passenger waited until his flight was on the runway before announcing he has COVID.
We’ll get to those stories and much more in a few minutes. But first, here’s a quick recap of this past week at Rene’s Points!
Amex and Delta teamed up to offer some pretty massive welcome offers on the cobranded SkyMiles cards.
One of our readers received a very pleasant surprise: his Diamond Medallion status was seemingly extended into January 2023.
The Fly Delta app appeared to extend some SkyMiles members’ Companion Certificates and vouchers again — but don’t get too excited.
How fun does this sound? Qantas is selling flights to mystery destinations.
Time is running out to register for this quarter’s Chase Freedom Flex 5% bonus categories.
A Delta passenger reportedly died during a flight Thursday.
We may be able to take a spin — literally — on a space hotel sometime within the next 7 or 8 years.
The big $595 annual fee posted to my most recent Business Platinum Card from American Express statement. So I decided to see if they had any retention offers available. Here’s how that went.
So, this video is apparently three years old. But the humor is timeless. (And I’d never seen it until it popped up on my Instagram timeline yesterday.) I thought you may get a kick out of it — whether it’s your first time watching it or you’ve already seen it.

Again: the video is very pre-pandemic. So this is back in the day when full flights didn’t scare the bejesus out of everyone.
I’m guessing the voice belongs to a flight attendant — not because the person is female but the plane appears to be on approach (looks like SFO to me.). I’m guessing the pilots are were too busy at that point of the flight to try out their comedy material. But, hey, it’s Southwest. So who knows.
This makes me long for a Friday afternoon Southwest flight from Burbank to Vegas.
