Airbus A350 took it to the skies first time on Friday in Toulouse, France. The A350 flew around for four hours and landed.

Eden Roc’s Marriott Affiliation Coming To An End On July 11

Last year, the owner of the Eden Roc hotel in Miami’s South Beach tried to take over the hotel and oust the Marriott’s on property management. This didn’t go to the plan and Marriott continued managing the property (you can read my piece here).


There was a piece on Bloomberg (you can read it here) that a New York court had made a decision that the owners of Eden Roc could remove Marriott as the manager of the property.

IHG Rewards Club Summer 2013 Promotion Guide


IHG Rewards Club (Priority Club’s name is changing on July 1 – read more about coming changes here) has plethora of promotions going on at the moment and I thought that it would be a good idea to try summarizing them all in one article.


The number of different types of promotions that the IHG Rewards Club may sometimes have simultaneously is very confusing even for someone that follows them as closely as I do (you can read more about different types of promotions here) and reading the promotional terms and conditions, when available, don’t always help either.
