In 10 Years, Windowless Planes Will Give Passengers A Panoramic View Of The Sky – The Powerful Mind
Uhhhhh no thanks.  You know leaving the window open on a red eye was a pet peeve of mine which also made our top ten lists of no no’s.  This seems like a nightmare to me.  Hopefully it never comes to fruition.  I can’t even imagine how rarely the screens would be wiped down too.  Hat tip to Jared in our FB group for sharing this one.

Why I am giving up my loyalty to Alaska Airlines – Single Flyer

A good overview of all of the recent Alaska devaluations.  They still have the most valuable miles but they are no longer as customer friendly as they once were.  It seems like each domestic carrier, outside of Southwest for the most part, have slowly worked their way to the bottom right next to each other.  That is probably why Delta is now the best airline for domestic award travel.
