    Is It Possible to Actually Enjoy Regional Jet Airplanes?
    Yes — and Here is Why

    The lack of a premium class cabin, no Internet Wi-Fi service, and no built-in in-flight entertainment system are only some of the reasons why vickers really enjoys flying as a passenger on regional jets airplanes.

    Here is a Tip: The Envelope, Please...
    Tipping a housekeeper — especially after intentionally pushing him or her — may seem like a cruel and unusual response after having your hotel room cleaned; but when the tip is in the form of a monetary gratuity, members of the housekeeping staff are usually grateful.

    Hotel Brands Which Offer Complimentary Breakfast: Look Here First
    WilliamQ has generously compiled a source of easy reference for fellow Milepoint members with a list of hotel brands which provide complimentary breakfast to guests — regardless of elite level status, room rate, room type, or package booked.

    Video: Randy Petersen Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge — Yet Again
    Once again, Randy Petersen has a bucket of ice water dumped over his head and challenged others in the process. This time, however, there is a twist: this ice bucket challenge is for The Kula Foundation, which believes that if corporations are given the opportunity to really benefit — not just reputationally but financially — from philanthropic giving, we will see an exponential increase in social change. Milepoint proudly supports this noble cause and mission. Find out how you can support Kula today by registering to donate.
