40,000 Alaska miles credit card, Grand Hyatt Bogota opens, two restaurants join Priority Pass at SFO, Radisson Blu Larnaca opens,

Posted on August 29, 2018 by in Travel Deals

– The Grand Hyatt Bogota just opened – Hyatt’s first foray into Colombia – an excellent addition to a great city

– 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

– the Radisson Blu Larnaca is now open for reservations

– 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.
