JFK airport woes, United keeps adding routes, 50,000 Southwest card

– I never liked JFK airport much for its bruising winds (in winter), shabby state of terminals and mediocre lounges but what happened during the winter storm and the subsequent (failed) recovery is more akin to Mumbai than the US

It’s amazing how backwards and fragile many infrastructure projects (still) are in the US.

– United keeps adding flights like its 1999


– there seems to be a new working link for the 50,000 bonus miles Southwest card (great to earn a Companion Pass in 2018!) (HT Frequent Miler)

Keep in mind that these cards count against 5/24 (so you better have a clean sheet of recent applications).
