JetBlue Adds Another Route offering Mint: Many travel bloggers rave about JetBlue’s Mint Service. JetBlue has just added another route offering their Mint Service from NYC to Seattle.

Qantas Business Class Awards Open to Australia: This rarely happens so when it does, jump on the opportunity. There’s currently quite a bit of award space in business class from the US to Australia. You’d still have to find your way back to the US, but half of the battle has been won!
Luxury Stays Don’t Always Have to Break the Bank: Luxurious and family friendly are not terms that you normally see together, however there are a few places where they apply.

Search for Awards One Seat At a Time: Whether it’s a glitch in the system, or some intentional coding, many times your award seat prices change depending on how many seats you search for.

Is Korean Air Limiting Award Space?: Korean Airlines has long been known to have amazing premium class products and also some of the best award availability among airlines. However that may be changing. There aren’t a lot of data points yet, but it seems like Korean Airlines is starting to limit award availability on their own metal. I’m hoping this is just a minor glitch!
