Today Only: 50% Off First Class, Skymall is Back, New Lounge at MSP & More
Highlights and headlines from around the web:
- Today only you can get 50% off Virgin America First Class or Premium Economy for flights Dec 18-Jan 1 and 20% off Main Cabin for flights Dec 18-Feb 24, 2016. And some other fun Virgin America facts: if you’re in love with the flight attendants red heels, for a limited time you can get your own pair of the exclusive Stuart Weitzman pumps in Concourse Red.
You can also take a tour of the plane via Google Street View!
- The Military Frequent Flier suggests a (new-to-me) site to use when you don’t know which points to use for an upcoming flight.
- Skymall is back! At least partially. They have a deal with United and Amtrak to appear as insert in their onboard magazines. On long flights friends and I used to amuse ourselves by making up hilarious captions for the models’ and pets’ odd expressions. Particularly the potty-trained cat perched on the edge of the toilet.
- Minneapolis Airport just got a new lounge. The Escape Lounge opened in Terminal 1 and is open to any passengers willing to pay the $40-$45 fee regardless of which airline they’re flying. The lounge is open 4AM-9PM and for your entry fee you get 3 hours of free wireless, food off the complimentary menu, and even alcoholic beverages. You can reserve in advance for a $5 discount and pay at reception.But if you have a longer layover and the weather is nice, I suggest a trip to the nearby Minnehaha Falls and train depot. And if you’re there in the summer, don’t miss the shockingly good tacos!
