Weekend Roundup of Travel News & Deals

I hope everyone’s having a great weekend. After three red-eye flights in the span of six days last week, I’m catching up on sleep this weekend!

This is what a bustling airport looks like in the middle of the night, by the way.

Newark Liberty around 4:00 AM

Anyhow, here are a few travel stories and deals for your weekend fix.

News and stories

Alaska Airlines award sale

If you have Alaska miles to spend on travel this fall, save 5,000 miles each way to and from select Mexico destinations. Coach fares start at 12,500 miles each way, a ~29% savings from the usual rate of 17,500. (Book by May 25, travel between September 1 and November 18, 2014.)
