Make the Amazing JetBlue and Virgin America Promo Even Sweeter

Much has been written about the truly amazing promotion that JetBlue launched where they will match your Virgin America mileage balance via the tiers shown below. Funny enough given they aren’t actually involved in this promo, in order to maximize the promotion, many who don’t already have large Virgin America balances are turning to the Starwood Preferred Guest program to transfer in ‘miles’.

Wright Amendment Gone, Fly On From Dallas Love

Today is a big deal if you fly out of Dallas Love Field, or really if you just fly Southwest in general.  The Wright Amendment has (finally) expired and airlines can now operate domestic flights on larger aircraft out of Dallas Love beyond the confines of a few nearby states.  This is clearly huge for Southwest who is hosting a big event today and has been giving away points leading up to today’s event.  It is also an important event…
