Martini Review of the Week: 

It’s Saturday and it’s time for the Martini Review of the Week. Take a look at this week’s top news, deals, and reviews below.

A Delta Air Lines flight bound from New York City (JFK) to Seattle made an emergency landing this weekend in Billings, Montana due to all the toilets being full and stopped working, meaning passengers couldn’t use the bathrooms for the remainder of the flight.


It’s almost the end of 2017, which means its your last opportunity to earn Delta Medallion Qualifying Miles (MQMs) before having your account re-set for next year. Medallion Qualifying Miles are those miles that are needed to qualify for elite status on Delta, and if you’re short on them, it’s not too late to still earn them this year.


Both the Le Parker Méridien New York and the Le Parker Méridien Palm Springs, will be leaving the Starwood/Marriott portfolio on January 4, 2018 meaning those staying after they leave, SPG benefits and night/stay accrual won’t be eligible.
