Thanks For The Heads Up Frontier...

I flew to Denver, Colorado last weekend on Frontier Airlines to visit a group of friends. I was scheduled to depart Omaha at 8:00 p.m. on Friday and return home at 11:00 a.m. on Monday. Friday morning I was able to check into my flight and download my boarding pass with no issues. Everything seemed to be going according to plan until I got this email from Frontier around 1:00 p.m...

My Experience Getting Bumped on Delta Airlines

My Experience Getting Bumped on Delta Airlines

My brother, Adam, and I just finished up our trip to Toronto, Canada last weekend. We both had great time and I was really impressed with Toronto, but I'll have more on that later. On Tuesday we were scheduled to fly home from Toronto (YYZ) to Omaha (OMA) via Detroit (DTW). We had a relatively short connection in Detroit and arrived at our gate right as our flight was scheduled to begin boarding. We weren't even there two minutes when the gate agent announced that our flight was oversold and they needed two volunteers to take a later flight.

We're going to spend four nights there so I'd originally booked us a room at the Toronto Marriott City Centre Hotel. It's not the most aspirational property so I've been keeping an eye out for a better deal as our trip draws near.

The internet has revolutionized the way people search for airfare. You can search directly on a particular airline's website, you can use a search engine like Skyscanner, or you can even use an online travel agency like Expedia.

How I Got Talked Out of Cancelling My AAdvantage Aviator Red Mastercard

How I Got Talked Out of Cancelling My AAdvantage Aviator Red Mastercard

Last year I signed up for the AAdvantage Aviator Red World Elite Mastercard after I saw their 40,000 point sign-up bonus (P.S. It's currently at 50,000 now so I'd suggest pulling the trigger if you haven't already). At the time I was in the midst of planning my trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi and needed few more AAdvantage miles to complete my award in Etihad's A380 First Class Apartment.
