Hyatt’s New Promotion
Hyatt has a new promotion that can really add up depending on your Hyatt plans. Pizza in Motion has a reminder up today to register and gives instructions on how to do it. He also gives great advice–always sign up for a hotel promotion.
I signed up for a Club Carlson one once even though I had no plans to stay at a property. My plans changed and I was pleasantly surprised to see the bonus (that I totally forgot about) hit.
I actually have a bunch of Hyatt stays during this promotion, which was a lucky coincidence (and partially due to me being way behind on qualifying for status next year!)
Getting Better at Plane Spotting
The other day, I pointed out some aircraft anomalies on a TV show. But how do plane spotters know which plane is which?
That Airline Guy has a great post up on key characteristics that can help you identify what aircraft you are looking at. (It is Part 1 of a multi-part series).
He doesn’t just stick with the easy ones. Can you tell a 767 and a 757 apart in the air?
If you are into plane spotting, here’s a video on Sharklets vs. Winglets
I used to explain the difference between some of the US Airways Boeings and Airbuses by saying to look for the plane that is giving them the thumbs up–but it’s a lot more complicated now, especially as wing technology changes.
Buy Me Flowers!
MonkeyMiles has a post up that is a good reminder that you can earn a lot of points when you send flowers. He highlights the current 30X (plus 500 bonus) miles that United is offering. He also shows how FTD will display your total points-earning before check out–so there are no questions about what you are getting!
