  1. Thanks for posting re the TAP discount awards, Gary. But a word of warning to fellow readers: Call to make sure the award availability really exists before transferring points. TAP has had some real problems with phantom availability on other sites (such as Aeroplan and ANA) recently. Not sure this problem will apply to its own site and booking directly with TAP’s own miles, but just a note of caution here.

  2. You’re wrong about TAP. It seems like I have to correct every blog one by one. See also doctor of credit’s correction.

  3. It was obvious Jetsmarter was a con job from the start. Can’t believe the people that paid out large sums for multi-year memberships.

  4. Thanks for the story on Mueller and Pan Am. It is comforting to know the US has such a competent and reasonable talent at the helm of the multi-faceted current investigation involving the sitting President and so many others in his circle. May justice be served.
