  • I really enjoyed Free-quent Flyer’s post about retiring to hotels.  As a SITCOM (Single Income, Two (Times Three) Children, Oppressive Mortgage), I’ve often wondered how much my monthly mortgage payment would last if I used it to manufacture spend hotel points to live in hotels. Free-quent Flyer breaks down how many points you’d need to generate to spend a month in the lowest category hotel for each of the major chains.
  • The Kansas City airport is (apparently) severely outdated and is scheduled to either get a new terminal or possibly be completely replaced.  Flyertalk wonders what is going to happen to MCI.
