Week in Review: The Qantas Downgrade Debacle, An Amtrak Trip with Dad, and Thoughts on Printing Your Own Bag Tags

1. Qantas’s Disappointing Response to Downgrade Debacle Raises Frequent Flyer Ire

A couple of weeks ago I featured a thread on the Australian Frequent Flyer forums in which a couple had been involuntarily downgraded from business to economy. Since I wrote that post, more information has come to light and the thread has grown to more than 800 posts.

2. Riding the Rails with Dad and Dewers

This trip report is a fun, informative, at times uncomfortable, but mostly heartwarming account of a cross-country air and rail trip shared by a father and his grown – if not fully matured – son.

3. Turning in Your Frequent Flyer Card for an Employee ID
