I know it is possible because I benefited from it once. I had GUCs for my wife and me clear at the gate at HKG for a flight to SEA. The GA found us in the lounge to let us know and also to process...

That’s a great idea; we just had an amazing stay at Alfonso XIII. The only downsides I see are:

-It will be quite hot in Seville, which may be uncomfortable for a very pregnant woman

-Seville...

I would nix Lisbon for two reasons: first, it is very hilly and that will likely be challenging for your wife if she’s far along. Second, it is a great place to go with kids. We took our son there at...

There are likely different ways of implementing Concur, but at my company the system doesn’t stop you from booking flights. Instead, it warns you which flights are out of policy, flags any exception...

A dozen. If I had been targeted for the double night’s promo, it would have been more like 30-40. I had almost no nights in January/early Feb because of a knee injury.

I spend quite a bit of time in Asia and know exactly what you mean. We have them in NYC too. The eggs are tiny, and wouldn’t be easily detectable in your luggage.

I just noticed that my YTD nights increased by a substantial amount overnight; enough that I went from being on pace to finish the year with 80-90 nights to easily being on pace to requalify for AE....

I went in February once and it wasn’t bad at all. Lines to major attractions were somewhere between minimal and non-existent. The weather was a little chilly but not uncomfortable with a midweight...

Thanks for the report. I’ll be staying there with my wife and son a couple times in September (our first trip to Belgium). We booked a Jr Suite at about €270; debating whether or not to apply SNAs...

This happens in the high-end art market as well. Probably the most notable example is the widely-reported incident where Liu Yiqian put a $170 million Modigliani on his Centurion card. Apparently he...

I would point to the Ace as being in a similar market to W (young, affluent clientele willing to pay a premium for a “hip” experience in lieu of traditional luxury). But Ace is more affluent indie...
