– I’m still somewhat in the dark what you can and can not do when traveling to Cuba – I always had another passport to travel but never got around to see the island anyways – this handy guide spells it all out

There are 12 categories of authorized travel to Cuba: family visits; official business of the U.S. government, foreign governments, and certain intergovernmental organizations; journalistic activity; professional research and professional meetings; educational activities; religious activities; public performances, clinics, workshops, athletic and other competitions, and exhibitions; support for the Cuban people; humanitarian projects; activities of private foundations or research or educational institutes; exportation, importation, or transmission of information or informational materials; and certain authorized export transactions.

Gulf-Air-Reviews

Gulf Air FalconFlyer miles are tough to get (the airline is a an AAdvantage redemption partner though) but if you have miles – the company runs a 50% off redemption on all Economy flights – and November is high season in the Gulf

The promotion for 50% off FalconFlyer miles redemption allows Gulf Air passengers traveling on Economy class and Falcon Gold across the airline’s network during the month of November to redeem their FalconFlyer miles for Gulf Air tickets – at a 50% discounted rate*.

– RwandAir recently got its first long-haul Aircraft, an A330 and has a few more Boeing 787 scheduled for delivery next year.

The airline has confirmed plans to fly to Guangzhou, Mumbai and London and make Kigali (it is also building a new airport) a major air transport hub. Rwanda is a country that can actually achieve their lofty goals.

Air Arabia is launching Baku in spring 2017, Baku is one of the destinations on my list for 2017, but look at what Air Arabia charges for a ‘promotional’ fare!

Barista-Experience-1

– the Emirates Business Class lounge at concourse B has gotten an $11 million refurbishment, but wait they laud their new Costa Coffee Barista experience? Now Costa Coffee isn’t exactly known for high end espresso beverages. I’d love to try this out!

KLM-resumes-flights-to-Tehran-1

– KLM is restarting daily service to Teheran, Iran – but look at the name they gave their inaugural jet – those Dutch are bold people!
