Spirit Pulls Ahead Of American And United In New Airline Rankings – Forbes

This isn’t surprising since Spirit crushes American and United in on time performance.  I fly Spirit semi regularly and don’t have an issue with them, for the most part at least.  When you can grab a big front seat for the price of economy on everyone else why not do it!

Frankenmuth, Michigan’s ’Little Bavaria,’ named top U.S. city for holiday vibes – MLive

I have been to Frankenmuth numerous times and it is a pretty cool little town.  Everything, all of the architecture etc., has to be done in a German theme.  They also have the largest Christmas store in the world that is open 361 days a year.  They also have a couple of indoor water parks.  If you visit Michigan it is worth checking out for sure.

Necker Island now costs 1.5M Virgin Atlantic points in 2020 – Miles Per Day

For that price I would rather go to the SLH Hyatt property that is on a private island.  Not as glamorous but probably gets you close enough :).  If you were saving up for this redemption this is bad news but it could have been worse.
