A very pleasant evening to you from Los Angeles, where I was happy to spend the entire week at home with my wife and son ahead of a major trip coming up this week (details coming).
Two major “sale” fares this week that I have jumped on — one to Australia the other to New York. I hope many of you jumped on these incredible deals as well. In the week ahead I’ll write about how you can avoid missing out on future so-called mistake fares.
I’ll finish up my trip report with One Mile at a Time this week and then poll you on what trip report to start next.
The key to avoid missing a great deal: decisiveness. Book now and ask questions later.
