Greetings from cold and rainy Seattle. I am speaking at FTU this weekend and it has been a lot of fun. If you have not yet been to FTU, consider the upcoming Minneapolis FTU in June. This weekend I am speaking on stopovers, United Airlines, and will do a live award booking demo on Sunday afternoon. It’s a great group of people who attend these events.
I’ll be home for a couple weeks – thankfully – and look forward to catching up on trip reports and having more time to blog in the coming days. Of course there are all sorts of housing projects my wife has earmarked my time for as well and there is that baby who requires more attention than ever. We’ll see how the new weeks goes!
Garuda Indonesia’s First Class product was every bit as great as I hoped it would be. These are my initial thoughts on my 12.5hr flight from Jakarta to Amsterdam. The berries were great!
Garuda also announced this week it will begin 3x weekly service Los Angeles. This route represents quite a gamble if the goal is to profit on it.
Hyatt Place in the United States and Hyatt Place in the Europe are two very difference concepts. Check out my stay at the Hyatt Place in Europe.
Flight attendants generally prefer working economy class than business or first class. Here’s why.
