What a Brilliant Personal Touch! This Is Way Better Delta Than a Forced GST “Thank You”!

Power port from the 80’s plus a broken window shade so I have to use a safety card to block the sun, stuff happens. Even a CRJ with bits falling onto passengers heads at takeoff, meh (then fixed with band-aids). My point is – I fly a TON, literally hundreds of segments a year on Delta, and rarely ever ask for any kind of point compensations for common Delta issues with their aging fleet. However, on one of my two recent trips to Alaska I intentionally booked and PAID 1st class from ATL to ANC direct because it was a long flight and I wanted power to work plus working IFE for that long of a flight (~8…

Trips of all kinds — work and personal — scheduled for 2020 are tentatively postponed to next year.
A bizarre tragedy occurred at Austin-Bergstrom Airport: a man was killed after purportedly being struck by a Southwest Airlines plane.

This could get interesting.
We’re taking a side trip today.
This isn’t a post about status, credit cards, flight suspensions, or hotel closures.
No quarantines, lockdowns, or social distancing.
Let’s talk about fun travel stuff — a topic we all share and love. Frankly, many of us need it right now (I sure as hell do).
Specifically: what are your travel go-to places? Are they near? Far? A restaurant? A hotel? A family property? A favorite seat on a plane? Beloved city? Tourist attraction? Something else?
Those in the Los Angeles area willing to spend $60 can pick up almost 2500 MQM in about eight hours during a quick trip to Austin. It comes out to just 2.3 CPM!
Reports are circulating tonight that Coachella 2020 is being postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
