American Express Centurion Lounge – Holiday Gifts & Experiences (12/3-/12/17) – Doctor of Credit

If you happen to be going past one of these during the next few weeks it is worth checking out.  You can only get in with an American Express Platinum card – check here for a 100K offer.

This May Be the Beginning of a Huge Win for Airline Passengers…Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Skipping Segments! Laptop Travel

I would love to see something like this happen in the US.  If you purchase the ticket you should be able to take as many or few segments as you want and your return flight should not be canceled.  Maybe that will cause the airlines to fix their algorithm issues that allow for hidden city ticketing.

Hilton Is Adding A New Property With Over-Water Villas – Traveling For Miles

Always good to see another over water villa option open up at a point friendly hotel.  I think this will be a very intriguing property for many with it’s location and with it being a Hilton hotel. Too bad the opening is so far off.

WOW Air’s Downward Spiral Continues: More US Routes Cut – One Mile At A Time

We covered WOW closing most of the Midwest airports a few months back but this is getting crazy.  And now Iceland Air is backing out of their deal.  I don’t see WOW Air being around much longer unless someone steps in.  Maybe a low cost US carrier like Spirit would make sense.
