Rumor: Electronics Ban to Include Flights From Many Popular Vacation Destinations!

A few months ago, I let you know about the electronics ban on flights to the US from 10 cities.  Now, according to One Mile at a Time, it’s rumored the ban will soon include flights from ALL of Europe!

This isn’t good news for folks who like to use their devices to get work done or watch movies in-flight.  Because if it’s an extension of the current electronics ban, only cell phones, smartphones, and necessary medical equipment will be allowed in the cabin.

New (Better!) Way to Use Starwood Points to Fly United Airlines

With the new way to transfer points between Starwood and Marriott accounts, folks can get a better ratio converting Starwood points to United Airlines miles by first transferring to Marriott points.

For example, if you transfer 10,000 Starwood points directly to United Airlines, you’ll only get 5,000 United Airlines miles because there’s a 2:1 ratio.

Instead, you could convert 10,000 Starwood points to 30,000 Marriott points (1:3 ratio).  Then, transfer the Marriott points to United Airlines and you’ll get a much better deal for your points.
