I love this hotel. It is adjacent to the arrival area of the airport. I am always greeted in a warm, friendly manner. The rooms are beautiful and well furnished. The food is great. The exercise room has good equipment and a beautiful view. Today they surprised me with a birthday gift. I encourage you to earn status with IHG and particularly take advantage of it with their #CrownePlaza, #Intercontinental, and #Kimpton brands.

Save this or pass it onto a friend so they don’t let their frequent flyer points and miles expire! Many frequent flyer points don’t expire as long as you keep your account active. You can usually do this by earning or redeeming points at regular intervals e.g 12 - 36 months depending on the program. Check out our guide (link in bio) to learn more about the details of many of the programs on this list. ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ #frequentflyer #frequentflyers #frequentflyerlifestyle #pointsfinder #frequentflyerpoints #velocityfrequentflyer #australiantraveller #australiantravel #frequentflyerpoints #frequentflyermiles #awardtravel #awardtravel101 #awardtravelpoints #qantasfrequentflyer #businessclass #instatraveling #traveltheworld #travel #travelling #travelguide #travels #travelblogger #traveler #traveller #travellers #travel #tourist #vacation #travelling

~Travel Tip Tuesday~ If you’re a frequent flyer or about to start traveling, I would recommend picking an airline or two that has a frequent flyer program. The pros of these programs is that every time you purchase a trip, the points are accumulated. So these points can allow you to eventually receive a free trip, upgrade to business or first class, go to events, or buy technology/merchandise. Also remember to research the programs because each one is different. For example, American Airline points expire while Delta does not. —————————————————————————- #frequentflyer #traveler #travel #flyer #frequentflyerpoints #traveltips #traveltipsandtricks #traveltip #travelgram #travelguide #traveling #jetblue #americanairlines #virginatlantic #deltaairlines #blacktravelgram #blacktravelista

Last week Jetstar gave us a sneak peak at what its new Airbus A321neo LR aircraft will look like. The first will enter service in August 2020 and the full fleet will arrive by 2022. Jetstar will deploy the new aircraft onto domestic routes to free up some of Jetstar’s Boeing 787 Dreamliners. Because of this, the A321neo LRs will have no business class seats and instead will have an all economy class cabin of 232 seats. Some of the features include: 📌 A smartphone / tablet cradle on the back of each seat 📌 The ability to stream Jetstar’s inflight entertainment options through an app to your own device 📌 In-seat USB power 📌 Slightly increased seat width from 17.9 inches to 18.2 inches 📌 40% more space in the overhead bins The new aircraft also has some impressive technology allowing it to burn 15% less fuel than its predecessors, and produce 50% less noise. 📷: Jetstar ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ #jetstar #jetstaraustralia #jetstarairways #airbusa321neo #airbus #airbuslovers #airbus320 #airbusa320 #businesstravel #businesstraveller #oneworld #frequentflyerpoints #awardtravel #frequentflyermiles #airlinemiles #businessclass #inflight #frequentflyerpoints #avgeek #pointsfinder #frequentflyer #awardtravel #frequentflyerlifestyle

More and more 747s are being retired, so we thought we would celebrate the “Queen of the Skies” with this picture of the first Boeing 747 rolling off the assembly line! 📌This photo was taken on 30 September 1968 in front of the press and 26 representatives from the airlines who had ordered the airline. The first flight took place the following year on 9 February 1969. 📌In Australia, Ansett Australia had twelve 747s by the time it collapsed in 2001 and Qantas still has six 747s still flying as of October 2019. 📷: @boeing ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ #avgeek #avgeeks #avgeekoftheweek #avgeekphoto #avgeekery #aviation #aviationdaily #aviationpic #aviationgeeks #aviationgeek #pointsfinder #frequentflyer #travelblogger #businessclass #luxurytravel #frequenttraveller #frequentflyer #frequentflyers #frequentflyermiles #frequentflyerpoints #frequentflyerslifestyle #747 #b747 #boeing747 #747lovers #boeing747lovers

Would you pay £55 (approx $103 AUD) to get into the Qantas London Heathrow Lounge? Qantas yesterday announced it’ll allow paid access to this lounge. We rated it a 4.5/5 stars in our review back in August, and think it could present value to travellers who plan to enjoy several drinks and a larger meal before their flight. Those stopping by for a quick drink and meal might not find much value in paying for entry. The lounge also gives you shower facilities, which might also sweeten the deal.

Before leaving for @Miami with @BritishAirways, I had plenty of time to visit the Quantas Lounge at Heathrow Terminal 3. Sorry guys, I love lounge hopping. You too? The Cathay Pacific and Qantas Lounges are really close to each another ;). The Quantas Lounge London can be accessed by all @oneworld @firstclass, @businessclass, @Emerald, and @Sapphire passengers. While the Cathay Pacific Lounge has a separate first class section, the Qantas Lounge doesn’t, so all passengers have access to the same space. The Quantas Loungs has two levels which are connected by a show staircase. Really posh! In the lower lever you will find a bar, which is also where one of the two buffets is located. You can sit there or at one of the tables. The elegant design continues in the upper level. This level has also a manned bar and plenty of seatings. A second buffet was located here. More or less the same offer as downstairs plus a large section of tea. The Quantas Lounge offers also a la carte dining. All the bathrooms and showers are located on the second level.

On the road and up in the air again! First up is American Airlines to Nova Scotia with no lounge access. However, because I have credited one world flights to BA, I have status that gets me in the AA lounge for free. Crazy isn’t it? I am crediting these flights to BA as well. The hotel will be an award redemption with Choice points. The flight back will be on United via AmEx points, since I will get a lot of extra United miles from a promotion that ends 10/31. #travel #destination #destinationdoc #travelingdoc #doctor #points #miles #rewards #worldtravel #traveler #worldtraveler #seetheworld #tourist #airplane #plane #travelgram #traveltheworld #frequentflyer #frequentflier #frequenttraveler #frequentflyermiles #frequentflyerpoints #travelersofinstagram #americanairlines #aa #americanexpress #amex #united #britishairlines #novascotia

Has anyone dropped by the Cathay Pacific Business Class Lounge London Heathrow Airport? What do you think? After you entered the business class section of the lounge you will see the dining area on the left. For me slightly reduced canteen chic, but that is of course my personal feeling. Anyway, I love the noodle bar, which is a popular feature at many Cathay Pacific lounges. You can sit down right there and watching the preparation of the dishes. On the other side of that is the main buffet area. The next room is the largest one in a modern lounge style and this room offered a manned bar. Here you will find plenty of seats, for groups, singles, to work or relax. The lounge offers several shower rooms. All OneWorld business class and Sapphire members can access this lounge before any OneWorld flight! ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ #airport #travel #airportlife #airportstyle #frequentflyer #travelblogger #airportlounge #airportlounges #airportloungelife #instatravel #businessclass #luxurytravel #frequenttraveler #businesstraveler #businesstravel #luxurytraveler #frequentflyers #frequentflyermiles #frequentflyerpoints #avios #britishairways #cathaypacific #cathaypacificlounge #oneworld #sapphir ✈️ ✈️ ✈️ 🔜@Vienna, @Berlin, @Switzerland, @Paris for @madonna

In August/September, I redeemed Qantas frequent flyer points for business class Emirates flights to Scotland for a wedding. I had accrued the QFF points from credit card sign up bonuses. Flight costs incurred were (all in AUD$): $394 card annual fees $1257.78 taxes & carrier charges $240.90 connecting economy flight to Frankfurt. TOTAL $1892.68 (~1292 USD) That's a little more than the price of an economy ticket. Why did I need to take a connecting flight to Frankfurt? There weren't any reward seats available from the UK for the time period I was looking at. Now Qantas has greatly increased the points required for international business class flights, I'm planning to use future Qantas points for domestic economy travel to hard-to-reach places. What are carrier charges for points redemption like in your country? #frequentflyer #frequentflyerpoints #budget #budgeting #budgetlife #budgettips #savingmoneytips #saving #savings #savingstips #frugal #frugalliving #frugallife #ozsavingcommunity #businessclass #champagne #emirates #qantas #personalfinance #financialfreedom #financialindependence #hiddencosts

My wife and I spent four beautiful days in Aspen at the gorgeous St. Regis. How did we do this? We “bought” first class tickets to get here from ATL on United using AmEx points. We “paid” for our hotel room with Bonvoy points and were upgraded due to having platinum status via the AmEx Bonvoy card. We also received free breakfast due to the platinum status. We will leave tomorrow on Delta. Yep, first class due to AmEx points again. We also accumulate ff miles on United and Delta. While here I booked a trip to Copenhagen in the Delta One cabin for my wife and I for 320,000 Delta Skymiles. The cash price for those tickets was $32,000 ($8,000 each way for two people). I also booked a 6 day trip to Tahiti and Bora Bora. Air Tahiti Nui wanted $10,000 a person for just the flights out of LAX. Thanks to discounts, United miles, Hilton points, and Chase points. I have Economy Plus ATL-PPT, 2 nights at the Papeete Intercontinental, 3 nights in a suite at the Conrad Bora Bora, and business class PPT-ATL for $3100 plus points for everything. Points and miles can let you make wonderful trips for very reasonable costs.

Yesterday was a nightmare flying. Our original Atlanta to Denver flight was delayed 4 hours causing the continuation flight from Denver to Aspen to be cancelled. Val of @united gave us the great advice of getting a hotel in Denver just in case. “In case” happened, and we are stuck here (temporarily we hope). Hopefully my gold United status will help get us on the way to Aspen. Remember any little thing that gives you some priority is a good thing.

This mileage run involved 3 different airlines: Delta, Alaska, and Singapore. I had the miles credited to Delta and Alaska. The route is ATL-EWR-LAX-SIN-EWR-ATL. Crediting Singapore Air miles to Alaska Air is typically a good move. I stayed for a few hours at the beautiful Changi Airport Crowne Plaza as well.

The busiest mileage run I have done is now in the books. Now I have to be sure I get proper credit. British Airways has already notified me that I made silver. Delta has credited two of three flights. I have to watch for Alaska Airlines miles, British Avios, and more Skymiles. Here is another pearl. Always be sure you get proper credit from loyalty programs. They virtually never make an error that favors you. The opposite happens regularly. This trip was ATL-LHR-ATL-DFW-ATL-PHL-LHR-ATL.

Thanks for a phenomenal, unexpected upgrade. Several Virgin team members told me that it couldn’t be done, but the right guy made it happen. 45,000 Virgin miles and 194 pounds later, and I am upgraded and enjoying the superb Virgin clubhouse. How did I get the Virgin miles? They were transferred from AmEx. I even received a 30% bonus. They are great miles to have. Their was absolutely no way to upgrade this flight via Delta even though it was their ticket, and they own 49% of Virgin Atlantic. This is my last flight, and if you have been keeping track I have spent 0 money on food even though I have had 4 and 5* dining. I missed one flight, but was able to rebook using AmEx points. I have spent $50 and 194 pounds, but I will be getting a $150 refund. Every one of my 7 flights was in first class. I received Alaska Airlines miles and status, BA Avios and tier points and increased status, and Delta ff miles and MQM miles. I had one hotel on Saturday night with free snacks (cherry ice cream and a monster) and free breakfast. I had a free Uber ride there using AmEx points and a free shuttle to the airport where I had expedited screening and lounge access. You can do this too. I put a lot of bargains on my travel list found under @johnnygayton on Twitter. My trips are originally posted on Instagram at DestinationDoc. I have been vigorously using points, miles, cards, and status for 7 years now. It works.

I had a beautiful flight from PHL to LHR. The BA team was fantastic. I slept most of the flight and did not take advantage of the fantastic food. The sleep was much needed and was sound. I woke 40 minutes prior to landing and enjoyed a beautiful London sunrise. Thanks to the BA66 09/29 team for a wonderful flight.
