Amsterdam’s historic Red Light District is being relocated outside of the city. And a new Vegas resort won’t allow gambling and smoking.
Like, is the travel police’s vice squad cracking down or what?!
(Kind of a depressing way for some folks to start the weekend, sorry. 😉 )
Tour: KLM Amsterdam AMS New #52 Crown Lounge (Between Concourse E & F)
Vacations rentals such as Airbnbs have been banned in some sections of Amsterdam.
Plus, a few of Boeing’s 737 MAXes are airborne again.
Happy Monday, everyone! Let’s take a look around the interweb and see what travel headlines grabbed my attention to start the week:
Review: KLM 777 Business Class Full Flat Seat 2020, Dinner and Breakfast Atlanta to Amsterdam
What is happening to the world?! A woman dressed as Minnie Mouse got into a fight on the Las Vegas Strip. Some tourism officials want people to not visit Amsterdam. And a guy released rodents in hotel rooms — just to get comped.
Want to take a business class mileage run to Amsterdam in lie-flat seats?
Doesn’t “Amsterdam Fog” sound like a hot beverage or 1970s rock band? (Some friends once told me about a fog or haze they felt after a few days in Amsterdam — but I think that was something different altogether.)
Unfortunately, this Amsterdam fog is a weather condition that may affect flights at Schiphol Airport (AMS) during the next two days.
Heads-up if your travels tonight (or those of colleagues or loved ones) involve Amsterdam Schiphol airport.
Reports out of the Netherlands suggest an attempted hijacking took place aboard an Air Europa A330 scheduled for service from AMS to Madrid.
Heads up if you (or someone you know) is traveling through Amsterdam Schiphol on Sunday or Monday. (Or both, if you’re weekend elite mileage running!) A pair of strikes — including one from KLM workers — threaten to give travelers headaches.
In fact, Delta issued a travel waiver for Monday, September 2 (Labor Day).
HURRY! Toronto to Amsterdam ~$2000 Business Class AeroMexico / Delta Elite Mileage run 23,436 MQMs, $6,250 MQD credit + 37,483-49,980 SkyMiles earned!
