Guitar Doorbell

Product Description:
Upon opening the door, visitors will be greeted by a face melting guitar solo that will make them feel like they are getting backstage access to a legendary concert.

Someone Corrected the Description:
It just plays a chord, not a “face melting guitar solo”.   It’s literally just a guitar attached to a board and a rod to hit the strings as the door moves.

American Airlines’ New Fees for Kids

Read the story from Frequent Flier.  Parents will pay more of you want your kids to fly alone.

 

q

 

Nuisance fees sometimes can be downright nasty. For example: when they target children.

A case in point is American’s just-announced change to the fees it charges for children traveling alone.

Today, children between the ages of five and 11 are assessed an unaccompanied-minor fee of $150 each way. (Children younger than five years old may not travel alone.)

Beginning on September 3, however, children aged 12 – 14 will be required to pay the $150 unaccompanied-minor fee as well.

As a point of comparison, Southwest charges a $50 unaccompanied-minor fee, each way, for children aged five through 11. So American’s fee Continue Reading…

Airline Loyalty? What’s Going on with the Revenue Model?

Delta’s loyalty program change, which will take effect on Jan. 1, 2015, is designed to reward Delta’s frequent travelers who pay more for tickets. The losers in Delta’s new SkyMiles program will be travelers who book their tickets far in advance to save money and on weekend specials.

United Airlines soon followed suit after Delta announced its changes.

Southwest Airlines, JetBlue Airways, and Virgin America already have enforced the so-called revenue model, which is intended to reward frequent fliers who spend more money on tickets.

 

q

 

Do airline loyalty schemes actually foster loyalty among the programs’ millions of members?

According to a new poll, conducted for TheStreet by GfK and reported on by Business Traveler, a solid 63 percent of Americans have no loyalty to any particular airline. Or, presumably, to any particular loyalty program.

That would suggest that mileage considerations play only a minor role in travelers’ choice of airlines. And indeed, only 5 percent of the survey respondents cited miles as their primary focus when choosing an airline.

Following price, the following were respondents’ picks for the most important factors affecting their choice of Continue Reading…

Think outside of the “U.S. Carriers”

British Airways uses a distance-based redemption chart instead of using a flat rate chart like most of the U.S. major airlines.  Therefore, most people will need less mileage just to fly around the U.S.  Thanks to the alliance and partnerships, you can book American and Alaska Airlines flights through British as well.

 

q

 

In comparison, most U.S. carriers require 25,000 miles to redeem an economy ticket within the U.S.   Since BA uses a distance-based redemption method, even at its longest distance such as JFK-SFO, British Airways only requires 25,000 miles roundtrip.  In short, you wouldn’t spend more mileage than you would otherwise redeeming through another frequent flyer program.
