Unexpected Miles Earned From An Award Flight

On Super Bowl Sunday we were supposed to fly home from our first trip of 2015 which was to Orlando, Florida.

With reports of snowstorms most likely hitting the NYC area and American waiving flight change fees I decided to call up to see what the status of our flight was. I received a call back from AA close to an hour and a half after I called in. I found out that our flight had been cancelled. Continue reading Unexpected Miles Earned From An Award Flight

We’ll be leaving on our first trip of 2015 tomorrow morning which will be a quick one.

This weekend I’ll miss watching the Super Bowl for what I can recall, the first time ever since we’ll be on our way home from Orlando, Florida.

I know, Orlando isn’t the most exciting destination (and not one that I’ve visited yet or have really cared to then again). However, when considering that Disney’s Magic Kingdom ranks at the top of most visited tourist attractions in the world & Epcot isn’t far behind, the time has come for us to finally see what the fuss is all about.
