Upgrading to the Chase Sapphire Reserve

Yesterday, the newest and hottest credit card went live – the Chase Sapphire Reserve. The card includes amazing benefits such as 100k Ultimate Rewards points after spending $4k within three months and also an annual travel credit, up to $300. Sadly, many of us received the “pending” result on our applications, including me. When it comes to Chase, “pending” is rarely a good sign. This new… Read More

When Alaska has 100+ Airline Partners…

I’ll be the first to admit that I kind of like Alaska Airlines.. it isn’t because I live in Seattle half of the year, or because they have a cool brand video, or because most of the flight attendants are nice (which is true)..

My Latest Airline Video Obsession

Every few days or so, my obsession with an airline video changes. For the past two weeks, ever since I was able to fly Etihad’s First Apartment, I’ve been listening to Etihad’s boarding music constantly and also playing their amazing ad, about 50 times per day: Well, my obsession with that video has changed and I’ve found a new one, specifically SWISS’ older brand video. I’m flying… Read More

This Business Class cabin was officially “First” Class on the ticket, since Qatar Airways… Read More
