Before I get to the post about dinner with DMX on an Airbus A321, I figured I’d share a report from my last Delta 767 First Class flight. On flights to the west coast, I typically look for a widebody aircraft, like Delta’s 777, A330 or internationally configured 767. None of those were an option…

Best Hyatt Breakfast In New York – Andaz Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes

I’ll be the first to admit it’s hard to make up your mind which Hyatt is the best. There are so many good Hyatt properties and so many that do breakfast well in their own way. For example, the formal Breakfast At The Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt Buenos Aires is almost an event. There is no more…

On a recent return trip to the Andaz 5th Avenue, I had the opportunity to experience a suite I haven’t stayed in before. In the past, the Splash Suite At The Hyatt Andaz 5th Avenue In New York City and the Andaz Suite At The Hyatt Andaz 5th Ave New York have provided more than enough space. So I…

When Delta’s $600 Bump Isn’t Enough

The “bump” in airline frequent flyer speak means free money. If a flight is oversold, they voluntarily “bump” flyers from the flight in exchange for flight vouchers good for future flights. Some people book flights just for the prospect of getting a “bump” from a flight. When Delta’s $600 Bump Isn’t Enough On this particular…
