I’m very sorry for my irregular posting this week. It’s not like nothing is going on in travel, but I have been very busy with my day job, some maintenance work on MJ on Travel world HQ, and all the stuff that comes along with that. After a visit to the gym this morning, some more tinkering with world HQ, and plenty of coffee, I decided it was time for an Aprihop at my local hangoutĀ and a little blogging. I thought some quick hits from other blogs might be in order while I get myself together after this week.

USAToday has discovered what I blogged about days ago. US Airways is offering Preferred Access for a fee.

Gary Leff offers excellent commentary on why the very different SPG and Marriott Rewards programs both scored well at The Freddies. For what it’s worth, I like both programs and stay at both hotels, but SPG will always be my favorite.

MommyPoints offers some scoop on earning even more Ultimate Rewards points. And by the way, Ultimate Rewards is evolving into my near favorite points currency.

And my buddy Rene over at DeltaPoints blogs about the test run of the new international terminal in Atlanta.

There are just a few of my favorite posts around the blogs this week. Theoretically, I should be back on a regular blogging schedule after this week! And oh yeah, I’m booking another cruise. šŸ˜‰
