We enter a Cortezless world by inviting Spencer Howard, miles aficionado, on to discuss trips to Korea, the Demilitarized Zone, overlooked redemptions, and recent credit card sign ups. We also talk about the hoops he jumped through to successfully take advantage of the Garuda 90% off promo. Please drop us a review in iTunes if you enjoy the show!
Trevor and Joe Cheung get together to recount Trevor’s Jetblue Mint experience, discuss how to deal with kids on planes who can’t control themselves, and chat about their summer trips. After the break, Trevor updates us all on what’s going on in the reselling world and we answer the age old question: “SNES Classic resellers – jerks or true Americans?” Enjoy and thanks for listening!
With Joe Cheung off celebrating his anniversary, the inmates were once again given the keys to the asylum. Unfortunately, they left Joe Cortez and Trevor in charge of the podcast. In this episode, the two talk all about the recent Skytrax World Airline Awards, and their biggest takeaways from the announcements. Did Etihad really deserve best first class? What about the best economy class? And… shawarma? All will be revealed in Episode 59, and hopefully order will be restored by Episode 60!
Trevor AND Joe Cortez (yay!) are off gallavanting, so I called up Leslie Harvey from Trips with Tykes to discuss hosted media previews and bias in blogging/media coverage. Both of us have experience in this area as it results to Disney, but we also discuss how it may or may not creep into the miles and points space. Speaking of media previews, Leslie just checked out Guardians of the Galaxy Mission Breakout in Disneyland and I visited Pandora the World of Avatar at Disney World, so we end the podcast with some Disney discussion!
