Home Airlines Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy: A ReviewVirgin Atlantic Premium Economy: A Review June 10, 2019 by Point Me to the Plane Over 20 years ago, Virgin Atlantic introduced something found nowhere else in the sky, a Premium Economy cabin. It resided somewhere between the increasingly rich perks of business class (Upperclass, in Virgin lingo) and steerage. In hindsight, the concept seems obvious. If passengers pay extra for wider recliners on domestic flights, wouldn’t they be more inclined to do so on a 10-hour haul? Richard Branson and company were right. The new cabin was a hit. Premium economy is now a staple on many long-haul routes around the world, and now three U.S. airlines are in the process of rolling out this middle cabin on widebody jets. I’ve flown in eight different premium economy seats on long-haul flights, but never on the original. On a recent return from Europe to the U.S., I decided to give it a try. Over 20 years after Virgin … [Read more...] about Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy: A Review

Home Credit Cards Review: Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit CardReview: Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card November 26, 2018 by Play Your Cards Right Despite the popularity of its bigger sibling (the Sapphire Reserve credit card), the Sapphire Preferred remains a great alternative for all travelers. When I first became interested in points and miles the Chase Sapphire Preferred was the one card that interested me the most. As a recent college grad I wanted to travel for as little as possible—the Sapphire Preferred was the only way to get discounted flights and hotel rooms with travel partners that I was already familiar with.
