40,000 Alaska miles credit card, Grand Hyatt Bogota opens, two restaurants join Priority Pass at SFO, Radisson Blu Larnaca opens,
– Priority Pass has finally allowed two restaurants (both in Terminal 3) at San Francisco International Airport to it’s line-up – the first real competition to the American Express Centurion lounge at SFO in a long time
– keep in mind that Kochi airport is still closed if you have immediate travel plans to the area after the devastating monsoon floods
– the Alaska Mileage Plan bank of America credit card now offers 40,000 miles after $2,000 spend
The offer is targeted to California residents but it may work for out-of-state applicants anyways.
– the Australian Transport Safety Bureau has now issued a safety warning against Malaysia Airlines after their careless take-off with covered pitot tubes
Safety standards are typically lax in Malaysia and have certainly helped keep costs down in the past. However it won’t hurt to upgrade them.
