The Very Best Travel Tricks and Tips

Here are the best travel tricks and tips, the highlights of View from the Wing posts from September.

Last month I summarized the very best travel posts from August. And in July the most useful and interesting developments from June.

I also wrote a post with the most useful advice I’ve given, overall.

It turns out, surprisingly, that the feature was really popular, at least judging by the emails I got — people that don’t read the blog every day really appeciated the recap and not having to dig through all of the posts to find the most enduring ones.

These are some that were my favorites from September. I hope you were happy with some of the posts and got something out of them as well.

  1. Adding my voice to those who appreciate the recap posts.

    I don’t always have time to keep up with the blogs, FlyterTalk, or MP, so recaps are a really nice way to see what I’ve missed.

  2. Hi
    Would you please write an update post for all the frustrated Bluebird CC Users like me out there ?
    I’m referring to any & all available sources for finding
    CC funding sources to load $$$ onto my Bluebird.

    Since CVS & TD dried up & One Vanilla being difficult to buy
    with a CC, there are limitations on using my Bluebird.

    Don’t really want to abandon BB & don’t really want
    the hassle of going to Serve

    Hope you can do this soon. ??
    Thanks again from a regular reader
