IAG’s NEW Discount Airline, 100% Bonus On HILTON Points, Delta Adds Negative FEES…

Happy Friday everyone. It's been an extremely unproductive week at GodSaveThePoints.com, but sometimes you've just gotta get out and put the computer down. I had an amazing time checking out the Indian Wells tennis tournament and I think the wisdom goes "when coming from New York where it's snowing, sit outside in the desert heat all day". Wise words. Anyway, with apologies and without further adieu, here are some important travel stories and opportunities...

How I’m Battling My Way Back To New York Despite Snow, Cancellations And CHAOS…

Let me start by saying, if you're ever going to be stranded somewhere, the desert of California, particularly Indian Wells, when one of the best tennis tournaments in the world is going on is a great place to be stranded. New York and the entire Northeast U.S. Coast are getting pounded with snow currently, and my flight home today is cancelled. In fact, virtually every flight into NY today is cancelled, and most are for tomorrow too...(Continue Reading)...

Before we go further, calling it "business class" seems insulting, even though it is. It's without a doubt the most impressive seat we've seen in business, and we've got everything you want to know and every picture you want to see!...(Continue Reading)...

Breaking: British Airways Will Offer Less Short Haul Economy LEGROOM Than RYANAIR!

It's hard to argue against the notion that in recent months British Airways short haul service has donned a very "budget" feel. In the airline's latest development, they’re taking the sensory experience of their brand beyond the abstract, quite literally reducing legroom in their short haul economy cabin. They’re reducing this ever precious pitch below the likes of many of their fiercest competitors. Sadly, we're not talking about the celebrated legacy carriers you'd expect, like Air France, but rather Ryanair...(Continue Reading)...

A New Discount Airline Is Breaking Into The US + Europe And That Means LOWER Fares…

Just a few years ago I flew between the US and Europe every month (or more), all in economy. Sadly, over the course of the year the best price I managed to land was a cool $800 round trip, which even seemed like a decent deal at the time. Nowadays thats more than double what we're seeing on an almost weekly basis for US to Europe (and vice versa). If you love cheap fares and would like to expand to new horizons beyond the European or US deals we're experiencing you could soon have your shot, thanks to route approval for an exciting new discount carrier...(Continue Reading)...
