The Strange Way to Ticket Infant Travel on Qantas When Redeeming American Miles (How I Saved $1800 Traveling With My Daughter)

I managed to book two first class awards on Qantas, Dallas Fort-Worth – Sydney and return, on the exact dates I wanted. The flights did not show up at but American agents had no problem seeing the space when I called. I’ve booked a lot of awards but I’ve never had occasion to book an infant through AAdvantage against a Qantas first class award. So I was surprised when successive agents told me it wasn’t possible.

Cost of living around the world

Rent sucks everywhere . Half of the United States is rent-burdened, meaning they spend more than one-third of their income on rent. And when you hear a stat like that, sometimes you think moving to another country might help your situation. But the truth is, it’s tough around the world. To see exactly how tough it’s gotten, relatively, the furnished apartment experts at Nestpick examined 740 neighborhoods in 50 cities, then determined the annual salary a single person would need to live in ea...

Unusual Things to Do in Sydney Right in the Heart of the City

Each time I visit Sydney, I feel a little thrill. Dressed in my favourite colours, white and a shimmering sea-blue green, she overflows with things to do. Many are lifetime highlights, like seeing the Sydney Opera House, climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge and even kayaking across Sydney Harbour itself (and learning to surf on Bondi.)

How to make LGBTQ friends traveling

As a queer, nonbinary person, I’ve often struggled with feelings of isolation while traveling, especially in countries where it’s not completely safe to be out. That’s why I’m grateful when I find some LGBTQ “family” on the road. For just a few days or even just a moment, I can let down my guard. I can stop switching around pronouns when I talk about partners or exes, and I can feel fully welcomed as I am. These moments often come unexpectedly: In Taiwan, I was at dinner with a new friend, an...

Up All Night with American – Part 1: The Operations Center

I may have flown to Dallas for American’s leadership conference last week, but that was merely an appetizer before the main course.

Pork Tales: Sydney Cebu Lechon, Enmore

Will Mahusay wants to spread the word of Filipino food to Sydney. When his parents Fred and Fely Mahusay emigrated to Australia in 1987 there was a dearth of Filipino food available.

Pork, pork and more pork (and warning, vegetarians, even the vegetables have shrimp in them).

Does Rolls-Royce Really Want to Make Jet Engines?

The “uncontained failure” of a Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine on a Qantas A380 almost caused the plane to crash.  Subsequently all A380s with these engines had to be grounded while modifications were made. Coming from an English-heritage country (New Zealand), Rolls-Royce has always been a brand with special magic to me, and to most other people of English extraction.In decades now well past, the name Rolls-Royce was the sine qua non of highest quality, highest reliability, ultra-prestigious motor...

Week 12 of our RV Road Trip: Learning to Love Los Angeles

Sometimes you have to visit a place a second or third time before you can appreciate it. I think it’s because we change so much. Through those changes we see the world through eyes that have different values and interests. My opinion of Los Angeles has always been that it’s overrated. If I HAVE to pass through here, I head straight for the South Bay Beaches of Manhattan Beach and Hemosa Beach as I have had a liking for the local feel down there. But the rest of LA, no thanks!
