I was talking with a friend this morning about a long layover he had a few days ago. He was flying from Austin to Charlotte via DFW, in order to attend a family get-together. His American Airlines flight from DFW to Charlotte was cancelled, and he had to wait several hours for the next available seat.
The information in this well-done article at CreditCards.com would have helped him:
Southwest Airlines offers a Companion Pass to anyone who earns 110,000 Rapid Rewards in a calendar year (with a few restrictions). Today (April 5) they made a change, effective today, that will make this more difficult for most people.
In general, from now on you will probably need to own a business in order to get the Companion Pass.
Award Wallet has a blog post listing credit cards that offer trip-delay insurance, and the details for each one. In general, the best insurance is offered by the credit cards with the highest annual fees.
For example, four cards with $450 annual fee (Citi Prestige, Citi AAdvantage Executive World Elite, Chase Sapphire Reserve and Ritz-Carlton Rewards) will pay out up to $500 for delays as little as 3 or 6 hours.
All the other cards listed (with exception of Barclay Arrival Plus) require that your delay be at least 12 hours.
The frequent-flyer community is excited about a new offering from Chase: the Chase Ink Cash business credit card. This new card has a sign-up bonus of $500 after spending $3000 in 3 months, and is a no-annual-fee card!
Under certain circumstances you can convert the $500 bonus into 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points, which may be used to purchase up to $750 worth of air travel or converted into frequent-flyer miles.
Bermuda is an island in the Atlantic Ocean, several hundred miles east of South Carolina. The national language is English.
Scott’s Cheap Flights has found Basic Economy fares on American Airlines / Delta of just $379 round-trip.
Bermuda has no rivers or natural lakes, so all water is harvested from rainfall. When you go, notice that every house and commercial building has a white roof that drains into a cistern…that is its only source of water!
