A Delta flight from LAX to Nashville was diverted Friday after a passenger tried to break into the cockpit.

Some travelers taking a Madrid mileage run (or two or…) can breathe a little easier: Spain will soon accept fully vaccinated Americans.

And speaking of Spain, Airbnb is celebrating the 25th anniversary of “Macarena” with Los Del Rio.

Plus, the CDC gave its blessing for a Disney Cruise Line test sailing.

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

People were embarrassed for me — because of what happened in this post.

Remember that several credit card statement credits expire this month.

There’s a problem with some Delta upgrade certificate redemptions — SkyMiles members have to do some legwork to get their MQM, MQD, and MQS on award travel.

We found a couple of nice mileage runs: one from Seattle to Austin on Delta and an AeroMexico MQD trip from Chicago to Paris.

René just took his first trip since early 2020. Where did he go? To dinner.

Southwest Airlines celebrates its 50th anniversary this year — and you can win points, gift cards, or a Companion Pass!

Meanwhile, IHG is running a 100% bonus promotion right now for points purchases.
