I hadn’t been on Iberia Business Class long-haul in at least 3 years. The last reference I had was Kevin’s review of his flight LAX-MAD this past summer (check it here) so I wasn’t holding high hopes.

Air Asia Flight From Perth To Bali Dives 20,000 Feet Shortly After Losing Cabin Pressure


A shocking experience for passengers of an Air Asia Indonesia flight from Perth, Australia to Bali as the aircraft lost cabin pressure and lost 20,000 feet from it’s cruising altitude a short while after take off.

SPG Best Rate Guarantee Update

What I like SPG’s Best Rate Guarantee is that you don’t have to book the lowest rate (usually) but you can match different room types with ad ons such as breakfasts.
