Rare 1958 Era TWA Plane To Be Used As Retro Hotel’s Cocktail Lounge

If you’ve been paying attention to travel/points/miles/hotels/airlines/planes hobbyist news, you may have heard that the iconic 1962 TWA Flight Center at JFK airport is being restored and reimagined as a first-class hotel. It sounds awesome and Joe and I hope to be able to stay there once it’s open to the public.

One thing the hotel still needed was a cocktail lounge. And what better thing to use as a bar at a hotel at an airport?  A plane, of course!

But not just any plane…

Jet2.com Limited, sometimes known as simply Jet2 or Jet2.com, is a British low-cost airline.

Bicoastal Disney Openings, Visiting Liverpool With A Beatle, A New Way To Search for Flights & More

And here it is, Sunday again. Hope y’all have had a good week! Here are some travel articles we’ve recently seen that we think you may enjoy.

  • Nick at Frequent Miler wrote about a new search function on one of my favorite websites, Google Flights. You’re now able to search for airfares that allow you to put a carry on bag in the overhead bin. So it’ll eliminate basic economy fares that don’t allow bin access and add the bag charge to flights that charge extra for the privilege (like Spirit and Frontier).
  • Caroline from Frugal Travel Guy wrote about the best places to stay in Cuba on points and miles. The hotels available for points redemption are slim if you are an American who can even visit under the current travel restrictions. Personally, I’d strongly suggest staying at a casa particular instead of a chain resort. You can go to any island in the Caribbean and stay at a resort. If you’re going to Cuba, spend some time with the people. You’ll never forget it.
