$500 fines for smuggling an Apple, JetPrivilege adds AeroMexico, SmugMug acquires Flickr, JetBlue now codeshares with JetSuiteX

Posted on April 23, 2018 by in Travel Deals

should you be fined $500 for bringing an Apple (the fruit!) through customs undeclared?

– Jet Airways’ JetPrivilege has signed up yet another partner to earn (and hopefully redeem as well in the future) iles on – Aeromexico

– my favorite digital photo service SmugMug has acquired Flickr – the digital photography behemoth

This is quite amazing as Flickr was one of Yahoo’s biggest acquisitions and SmugMug is that tiny, family owned scrappy start-up I used to drive by every day.

– JetBlue is giving JetSuiteX the stamp of approval and started to codeshare on their flights

Customers purchasing these itineraries will get the benefits of JetSuiteX’s semi-private flying experience, traveling between private terminals for commercial airline prices. Additional JetSuiteX features include two free checked bags (combined up to 50 lbs.), 36” of leg room, power at every seat and complimentary cocktail and snack service on board. Unlike more traditional major airlines, JetSuiteX customers arrive just 15-20 minutes before departure and board in just minutes, with no cattle calls or baggage claims. And now Corporate customers may book JetSuiteX flights directly at JetBlue.com.
