Notice: Function amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `init` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the plugin with slug `jetpack` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Speculation on Award Travel to Cuba

A blogger has analyzed the possible number of frequent-flyer miles needed when Americans are permitted to fly to Cuba.

The airlines covered are American, Delta, Southwest and United.

It seems likely that very few award seats will actually be released, since the airlines probably will be able to sell (for money) just about every seat they fly to the Cuba.

Korean Air Has a Great Program for Award Travelers

Some of their routes require few frequent-flyer miles.

Even their new changes are still much more passenger-friendly than what travelers on U.S. airlines (except Southwest) experience.

Need some Korean Air frequent-flyer miles? You can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards and Starwood Starpoints in.
