  1. I find kaligo has better yields than rocket miles, particularly in Krisflyer miles. Better coverage in asia and good for getting something decent from brands with no worthwhile loyalty programme or chaisn where you’re never going to build up a useful balance.

  2. Never again do I want to fly into or out of LAX. Transfer, fine. I stupidly flew into there when I had a conference in Orange County (to save like $100), forgetting how vast the urban sprawl is in awful La La Land.
