Tragic news from Southwest flight 1380 which made an emergency landing at Philadelphia airport

One passengers sustained deadly injuries as result of the engine disintegration leading to shrapnel intrusion into the cabin and holes in the fuselage. Despite this sad event it seems this could have ended much worse.

– the Chase Offers have now moved to the Hyatt card (I always find the grocery chain promotions on a hotel credit card somewhat odd) but there is good deals to be had

– everyone is still digesting the good and bad of the new Marriott program (nobody knows in which categories hotels will end up in) – one interesting development is that all Marriott Gold will become Platinum from on August

Remember that you can get Starwood Preferred Guest Gold with the American Express Platinum card which in turn matches to Marriott Gold.

– Zimbabwe and Zambia are in desperate need for a domestic airline and better international feed – now the new Sol Air has trouble securing financing that seemed very safe just a few weeks ago
