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.

United Airlines has announced that for flights on or after November 15th, 2019 there will be no award chart pricing. See full details of: United Airlines Removes Award Charts. A positive move will be the elimination of close-in award fees that United currently charges for booking last minute award flights.


For those traveling to/from/through New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, get ready for longer taxi times and potential ATC delays, as the airport will be closing one of their four runways starting this week. See details: New York’s JFK Closing Runway for Construction; Expect Delays.


See our Lounge Review: Delta Sky Club at Washington National Airport (DCA): The 9,000 square foot club has seen a complete renovation, and is nearly 20% larger than the previous club, thanks for some changes to the space, including moving the check-in area outside the club.
