• What a smart idea, instead of sending a plane out empty or hoping there is enough commercial demand for the seats on an extra flight. I really hope this Points Plane idea takes off!

  • I don't see why this is needed. Nobody is going to be choosing their airline based on points and status credits, you are more likely to choose your airline because you are already a frequent flyer with them, so the points and status credits doesn't factor into this.I agree that the cost would be ...

  • I've seen those collapsible fabic 'packing cubes' at a lot of online and bricks-and-mortar stores, and I don't quite understand their appeal. Do you really need to pack your clothes into specific bundles, as I have survived pretty well until now without packing cubes. Isn't this just a solution i...
