COOL EVENT ALERT! Our Dinner At The Pan Am Experience

I had written a while back that we had gotten tickets for the Pan Am Experience, an event where you relive the magic of flying onboard a luxurious Pan Am 747, complete with full meal service. We had made the reservation back in May (it’s very limited seating on a first-come, first-served basis. I’m usually really good at snagging those) and, truth be told, part of our vacation to the southwest was planned around attending the event. Well, that and seeing Hamilton (for the 5th time. Don’t hate me). It was a LONG 6 months, but October 21 finally rolled around and we were on our way!

Dumb Joke Diverts Plane, Some Best Way To Use Points & Miles + More…

From IHG’s free night certificates, to Gwen Stefani’s patdown to 2 Americans getting arrested for skinny dipping at a temple in Thailand & posting it on Instagram, here are some stories we saw this week that we thought were interesting. We hope you will, too:

  • Never settle for the average. Many websites publish values what points and miles are “worth,” but this post from Loyalty Traveler looks at them a different way: what points and miles can get you if used properly. The list includes some programs often ignored like Choice, Best Western and Carlson.
  • Here’s a post from Doctor of Credit about the best uses of the IHG free night certificate from their credit card. I just used ours at the Intercontinental in Chicago and I think it’s one of the most valuable credit card benefits around.
  • I know some people think they’re such the comedian, but as View From The Wing reports, airports and airplanes (or anywhere for that matter) are not the place for “hilarious” bomb related jokes.
  • And while you’re at it, if you drop trou at a temple in Thailand, don’t post your pictures to Instagram until after leaving the country. Or even better, don’t go disrespecting Thai Temples in the first place. Thanks to Loyalty Lobby for this post.
  • Looks like someone read our review of how cool the Pan Am Experience dinner is. The Points Guy says that Chrissy Teigen just had her birthday party on board (we must have misplaced our invitation) with her husband, John Legend, and friends Kayne and Kim in attendance.
  • Keeping on the celebrity news, even they get hassled by the TSA. Here’s a video from TMZ showing Gwen Stefani getting a pat-down before her flight.
  • And one more celebrity (or at least a person with influence) story. Several posts popped up about a case of a drunk passenger making sexual comments to a passenger and the airline crew not wanting to get involved. I’m sure this happens quite often but when it happens to Mark Zuckerberg’s sister (yes, that Mark Zuckerberg’s sister), the airlines tend to notice when you publish your complaint letter on Facebook. Wandering Aramean suggested one approach of how to make this an issue the crew would have had to deal with if the plan has not left the gate, and Pizza in Motion wrote a few thoughts on what limited options airlines have once the flight is in the air.
