Hello from New York!
I’ve flown nearly 27,000 miles since last Saturday, and 35,000 if you include the two days before that.
Needless to say I’m excited to be on the ground for a few days with my family!
Etihad has an amazing promotion code at the moment offering up to 30% off flights in virtually all fare classes and markets, including one-way flights in The Residence. If this fits with your travel plans, this is potentially a great deal!
For other people traveling this month, here are some tips on dealing with internet in China.
In the meantime, the DOT has issued a temporary notice suspending enforcement of “mistake fares,” and outlining new general guidelines.
