It was another Thursday afternoon and I was flying to SFO from PHL. However, today was a bit different. I couldn’t get an aisle on the nonstop so I booked a connection. PHL-ORD then ORD-SFO. All was good until I noticed the seat map for the ORD-SFO leg.
Lately I’ve been on delayed after delayed flight with United. I even started a single twitter thread where I just keep complaining about SFO-PHL, and PHL-SFO flights being chronically delayed. I started to wonder; is it just me having bad luck or is United getting worse overall with on time departures?
I was going to title this after the popular catchphrase coined by Capital One, but didn’t want to take the chance of getting a cease and desist letter.
Credit cards are one of the focal points of nearly every frequent traveler blog. So, I thought I jump right in and inventory what I carry around on a daily basis. I don’t sign up for several credit cards a year just for the bonus then cancel them. I don’t sign up for a personal credit card then also sign up for the business version just to get double the bonus. Some bloggers travel so they can blog. I blog because I travel. With that said, I get enough points based on the few credit cards I have and my extensive travel through work. Continue reading “What’s In My Wallet?”
I figure, everybody else has a blog, why not me.
A lot of the points and miles sites you read are geared towards the ins and outs of “the hobby”. While many of us like to travel, it’s not our full time job to apply for credit cards to get large sign up offers, book award travel with a stopover and two open jaws, or search the Internet for “discount” business fares which are still unfordable.
I plan to write about and comment on general news from the travel industry. This is based on the perspective of a “road warrior” consultant who travels every week for work. And no, I don’t fly first class (or business class). I fly coach like the 99% of us. Sure, once in a while an upgrade clears (more rants on that later), but those seem to be few and far between these days.
So check back every once and awhile.
