We all want to travel, we all want to travel more and of course we all want to travel better. Since some of us travel more frequently, some have more travel perks than others and this time of year it’s more important than ever to share that good fortune. We’ve offered similar ideas on our Facebook page before but this year we wanted to introduce our new “Season of Sharing” initiative, helping people help people with their upcoming holiday travels…

So How Does It Work?

Elite status in airline or hotel loyalty programs come with some great perks. It’s a reason many people bother to earn points and stick to one airline or hotel. One of the great perks is that many of the benefits can be shared with others, such as guest privileges for lounge access, upgrade certificates for hotels and airlines, drink certificates, free nights which anyone can use and so forth. We want to use the comments section to allow people to share their upcoming travel benefits which they’re happy to invite someone else to experience, or which they can’t use. You can post what you’ve got or make a request, like “I am flying December 23rd out of JFK, anyone have a lounge they can guest me into?”…

MANY people are posting perks on our Facebook page, so head there to find something you can use too. The post with the offers will now require a little scroll, but it’s TOTALLY worth it.

We’ll Start Things Off…

We have one American Airlines upgrade certificate from the Business Extra program, which is valid for a one way, one segment upgrade in the US up for grabs. We can help determine if there’s space on your flight for an upgrade so it doesn’t go to waste! We ALSO will be flying British Airways from New York to London on December 21st and back January 5th. That means that if anyone is flying out of Terminal 7 at JFK the night of the 21st, we’ll be happy to guest you in to the British Airways Galleries Lounge where you can relax, have some food and drinks. On the 5th of January, we’ll happily guest you into the Concorde Room or other British Airways lounge with us. If any of you are traveling and have benefits you can share, please leave them in the comments below. The first person that emails you should get the benefit. 

Let’s Be Thankful and Respectful…

Some of these benefits will fly quickly and only one person will get them. Please don’t complain if you weren’t quick enough, or if someone’s plans change. It’s the thought that counts and people can really brighten other peoples day’s here. Also, as a guest of someone, or someone using a hotel upgrade, a free night certificate or lounge access, please be respectful to the lounge rules and to your hosts. If you’ve ever been duct taped to your seat by a member of airline staff, we’d prefer if you didn’t participate.
