Is there any reason I'm missing to keep this card after they extend the validity of my Hilton membership? I can't imagine any point in earning points for gift cards (which presumably far worse value than FF points).

I'm not sure how they'd do it either ... but I wish they would figure it out somehow because it would be great

What are 'toilet nozzles'?!If you meant air nozzles, than I think you are mistaken. I suspect it is the airline that decides whether to equip the cabin with adjustable air controls, not the manufacturer - for example, the Singapore Airlines A350 does not have these controls in its business class.

This question and the answer piqued my curiosity. It seems Hawaiian doesn't provide anything for Velocity members. The lounges you can access when flying on the VA codeshare are not Hawaiian's lounges, they are The House in Sydney (Virgin's lounge) and the Delta Skylounge in Honolulu ... which su...

Hilton has so many more properties in the US, and so many more brands to differentiate itself ... Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, Hilton, DoubleTree, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn, Embassy Suites, Homewood Suites etc etc etc.But also, given the sheer number of hotels in the US, perhaps some of their ol...
