We’ve flown into LaGuardia Airport more times than I want to remember. For the most part, these flights include a sightseeing tour of central New Jersey, Staten Island, Brooklyn or Queens. That means seeing a bunch of houses right next to another, an apartment project here or there, and not much else.
For some reason though, on this trip on Delta to LaGuardia, we took a different route.

Hi everyone! Here are the articles we’ve recently seen, written by others, that we learned from, made us think or maybe made us chuckle a little bit. We hope you enjoy them!

Although Your Mileage May Vary initially started because of Joe’s talents with points and miles and other ways to save money while traveling, I’ll be the first to admit that I really don’t care about the whole points and miles thing. Don’t get me wrong, I like the benefits of his hobby (after all, it gets us upgrades and free stuff!), but I’m very happy to stick to writing the “fun” articles about stuff like Disney and the weird toilets at Chicago-O’Hare Int’l airport. Which doesn’t mean I haven’t learned a thing or two about points and miles along the way. Hence this situation, which happened the other day…

It’s been six months since I’ve looked into the big three airlines’ basic economy fares. In the meantime, we’ve flown on a basic economy flight on Delta and decided that as basic passengers with no status, these fares are not for us. We’d rather pay extra for the pleasure of being crammed into a regular economy seat but at least we’d be able to pick which seat we’re sitting in and have the pleasure to bring a carry on bag we can put into the overhead bin.
Each airline has made changes to the restrictions on basic economy fares so I think it’s time to look back at what’s changed. The BOLD TYPE indicates the changes since we’ve last checked.

Delta Skymiles were the first airline miles currency I used with any frequency. I flew Delta often and they were a transfer partner of American Express Membership Rewards, the only credit card I used, at the time, that earned points. I then started collecting them for real when I knew we were looking to go to Australia. Delta ran an offer in 2011 where if you transferred miles, they would double the amount of miles you were transferring, basically letting you buy Skymiles at a little more than a cent a piece. I maxed out Sharon’s and my limits on transferring miles. In retrospect I lucked out because in 2014 I was able to book two business class tickets from Los Angeles to Sydney on Virgin Australia using our Skymiles.

American Airlines, the largest airline in the United States, and Delta Airlines, the second largest carrier, have decided to resume an agreement that allows the airlines to rebook their passengers on each other’s airlines in the event of travel disruptions.
