LAX Lounge Knockout: KAL Lounge Vs. Alaska Airlines Boardroom

I was in Los Angeles over the long weekend, and had some time to kill before my flight home to Minneapolis. Having a Priority Pass membership through my Amex Platinum card, I thought I’d check out the (now only two) LAX lounge options: The Korean Airlines…

My Helicopter Ride Over the Oscars (and Paying Half Price)

I was lucky enough to be in Southern California in February to celebrate my mom’s birthday. It just so happened the weekend coincided with The Oscars, which is sort of a big deal in Los Angeles 😜. Over the weekend, I had been surfing Instagram and…
