Lap Babies Eligible for £250 EU Delay Compensation Awards!

Lap baby in the EU

If you have flown to or in Europe you are probably at least somewhat familiar with the EU Regulations that provide for monetary payments if you arrive at your final destination with a delay of more than 3 hours, as long as the delay wasn’t due to extraordinary circumstances such as political instability, air traffic control, weather, or security situations. For those not familiar with how this compensation works, we aren’t talking about getting a small airline voucher for your troubles, we are…

Best Airline Award for Lie-Flat Seats to Europe From the Middle of the US


It has been a little while now since I have taken a truly fun flight where I was looking forward to the actual flight in addition to the destination, but hopefully later in 2017 that will change. I am very much hoping to get to Europe (without kids) late in 2017, and I want to have a little fun getting there. For me this means flying in a premium cabin, and while it doesn’t have to be as premium as Lufthansa First…

Yes, You Can Really Fly to Europe for Just $69!


You may have seen headlines this week about flying to Europe for just $69, and in the age of “too good to be true” headlines, you may have justifiably doubted if that was really possible. You may have thought that there must be a huge catch, or you have to use tens of thousands of points or miles along with the $69, or there is only one ticket available at that price, or something. Yes, You Can Fly to Europe…

Even More Cheap Flights to Europe Available Today!

Doesn't Edinburgh just look like a movie set?! #nofilter

I woke up this morning fully expecting the insane flight deals to Europe from yesterday to have dried up, but the opposite happened. They are even better. They are more widespread. They could end at any moment. I am even seeing some of these low fares in early and late summer outside of traditional school times. The best deals I am seeing right now are on Delta/KLM/Air France, but interestingly enough I am seeing them even from some Delta hubs…in…

The 88,000 Mile Business Class Round Trip Award to Europe


The airline award chart game is always changing, and one of my favorite award charts took a big hit earlier this month. The United MileagePlus program didn’t exactly change the actual prices of awards on their chart with this change, but they seriously altered the routing and stopover rules effectively devaluing awards for folks who like to maximize building in as many flights as possible into one award. I still really like United, but as I turn my sights to the…

8 Tips to Beat Jet Lag When Taking Kids to Europe


One of my biggest concerns when we recently went to Europe with a one-year-old and six-year-old wasn’t the actual plane ride, but rather dealing with jet lag once we landed. Jet lag and major time zone changes aren’t fun parts of travel, even for adults, but as adults who have experienced it multiple times, Josh and I know how to deal with it relatively well. This time I was most concerned about my just turned one-year-old since she doesn’t have the world’s…
