Here is some of the best travel news and notes from around the Internet:
- I really liked this writeup from God Save the Points about his experience with some of the VIP airport transfer services. Probably a little pricey for me, but I could see some value in it, especially if you have a tight connection in an unfamiliar airport
- Do you have one of the 5 most annoying habits of infrequent flyers? Or have you ever seen it in someone you’ve been flying with?

- You may have seen the recent announcement of a 150,000 bonus mile promotion at Copa Airlines – Travis from One Mile at a Time actually took the time to see is the 150,000 bonus mile promotion mileage runnable? I really enjoyed the detailed analysis.
- What are the worst decisions you can make on a cruise?
