  • United Airlines First Class Review 737-900 with New Sky Interior, Pat

    Pat s Travel Reviews

    United Airlines First Class Review 737-900 with New Sky Interior

    First class travel

    This is a quick update to this review I wrote a few years back. Most of what is written below still applies and at some point in the near future I will have a complete updated review of United s First Class service on their 737 s. The one thing that has changed and I make mention of is their IFE (In-flight entertainment). On aircraft that do not have Directv, United s Private Screening is available. This is their own device entertainment option. Unlike some other airline s there is no charge to access and watch programming on Private Screening (there is a charge for Wi-Fi I will have more details in future update). You just need to download the United App or the correct player on your tablet, smartphone, or laptop. I have successfully watch programs on a few flights last year. However, the last two times I flew United (was on A320) I was unable to watch programming even though I have United s latest app and correct player. I read where they were having a problem with Chrome so that may have been the reason. Before these two episodes I thought United s Private Screening was great with lots of content to choose from.

    Upon boarding this flight from SAN to IAH, I immediately sensed something different. It was a bit of a shock as I have flown on United s/Continental s 737 s for years. But the overhead bins and lighting were different. At first I thought maybe this plane was leased from another airline, but quickly realized that this was a new 737-900 and had Boeing s new Sky Interior (inspired by the new interior of the 787). After putting my bag and briefcase in the overhead I took my seat (1E) and realized two things. First; the overheads on this new design are supposed to have more space, but not much more as far as I can tell. I have a standard 21 bag and it seemed to fit the same as United s other 737 s. The second thing was this plane did not have ANY ENTERTAINMENT. Either overhead or seatback. This was very disappointing, as I am sure this delivery was from a Continental order and most (not all, see below) of Continental s 737 s have the Direct TV in the seat back. So you would think a new plane would come equipped with United s latest entertainment offerings. Instead, it had no entertainment options at all. All of United s planes (before merger with Continental) had overhead entertainment and audio as well. Why this plane did not either of those, I do not know. Maybe they will add later or maybe this is new direction United is going in. Either way it took some of the excitement out of flying this 737 with the new Sky Interior. (I recently read that United is having an issue with some seats and that is why the Direct TV has not been installed on all the new 737 s. It is currently on some of the new 737 s with Sky Interior and will be added to the other s in the future).

    First class travel

    The overhead bins on the the 737 with Sky Interior are pulled down (much like a 777) and the luggage or carry-on is placed inside the bin and you push the bin up to shut. As opposed to opening the latch on the overhead bin and placing your luggage in the bin . Besides being bigger and supposedly providing more room by pulling the bin down it may be easier for someone who is a little shorter to put their luggage in the bin. The other big difference with the Boeing Sky Interior is the lighting. It is a softer blue light compared with non Sky Interior aircraft. The LED (light emitting diode) lighting allows the airlines to add any color they want to the cabin. In this case, United chose blue.

    The other thing I found disappointing with this particular aircraft was there was no seat back pocket for the two bulkhead aisle seats in First Class (1B 1E). I hate not having a place to put the newspaper or being able to grab the in-flight magazine. I end up First class travelputting the paper on the floor (which doesn t look good) after I am done reading it, plus sometimes I ll get newspaper print on my pants because I will hold it in my lap or put besides me. On the positive side, the seat was very comfortable. The headrest cushion was softer than other of United s first class seats.The seats were nice and wide and the lighting switch is easy to find and provided plenty of light for reading.

    The meal service was typical for this flight and time of day. Nice glass of Minute Maid Orange Juice from the carton. A choice of a cheese omelet or cereal and fruit. The omelet was better than usual and the potatoes were as bad as usual. Why ruin perfectly good potatoes by putting asparagus in them?? The breakfast also came with sausage, small bowl of fruit, yogurt, and croissant (no cinnamon roll on this flight seems nothing was going my way ).

    First class travel

    After breakfast ,since there was nothing to watch, I decided to sleep a little. There were no blankets nor pillows on this flight. I have been noticing on United flights that pillows and blankets are becoming scarcer. Which is a shame. I woke as we were landing in Houston. Flight time was a little under 3 hours and we landed a few minutes early .

    The new Sky Interior seems to be an improvement over the older 737 s . I probably would have been more enthusiastic if they had their normal (either overhead or seatback) entertainment on this plane. Without it, it diminished the experience.

    I happened to be on the exact same early morning United flight from San Diego to Houston the very next week. It would be nice if United had all their flights leave out of one terminal in San Diego (and a few other locations). But the old Continental routes (EWR IAH) leave out of Terminal 2. The security in Terminal 2 can be very long, plus the United Club is in Terminal 1 (there is a Delta Club in Terminal 2). In addition, there is no consistency what terminal United uses when landing I just returned last week from IAH and we landed in Terminal 1 (I told my wife to pick me up from Terminal 2). But that is a different topic for another day.

    This flight was also on a 737-900 and again I was in seat 1E. This plane did not have the Sky Interior, but everything else was the same. Including NO ENTERTAINMENT. What makes this more frustrating is these flights were promoted as having Direct TV. So, First class travelif it states that your flight will have Direct TV (or live TV with Delta). It may not be so, not all their planes have these entertainment options (buyer beware). Again, there were no pillow or blankets. But on the plus side this plane did have a seatback pocket in the bulkhead. The meal was very similar. This time a mushroom omelet or cereal with fruit. I liked the cheese omelet from the week before much more. But this time they had the cinnamon rolls. So I was happy. I again slept after breakfast and we were also a few minutes early with this flight.

    The service was equally as good on both flights. On the second flight there were three (in addition to the regular crew) flight attendants in training and they were fine and very pleasant (I m sure it won t take them long to loose that enthusiasm). On both flights the leg room was very good. The seat was more comfortable on the 737-900 with the new Sky Interior, but otherwise flights very similar. As a side note, if flying on a United 757 (original United, not Continental) you never want to sit in the bulkhead in First on the E F side (seats 1E 1F). These two seats have the least amount of leg room on the entire plane. 1A 1B have a cut out that provides a few more inches of room. On Continental s old 757 s the bulkheads have cutouts on both sides (I think A B a bit more space). 737 s have plenty of leg room in the bulkhead and 320 319 s have a decent amount of leg room (not as much as United s 737 s though).

    On 27 January President Donald Trump signed an executive order halting all refugee admissions and temporarily barring people from seven Muslim-majority countries.

    The move sparked numerous protests and legal challenges. A week later a federal judge in Seattle suspended it nationwide, allowing banned visitors to travel to the US pending an appeal by the administration.

    Mr Trump and his supporters say the controversial executive order makes good on election promises to “make America great again”.

    But what is the order, dubbed the “Muslim ban” by those rallying against it, and who exactly does it affect?

    Here are some key points from the full text explained.

    What is the order?

    • It brings in a suspension of the US Refugee Admissions Programme for 120 days
    • There is also an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees
    • And anyone arriving from seven Muslim-majority countries – Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen – faces a 90-day visa suspension. Some visa categories, such as diplomats and the UN, are not included in the suspension
    • The order also introduces a cap of 50,000 refugees to be accepted in 2017, against a limit of 110,000 set by former President Barack Obama
    • Priority will be given to religious minorities facing persecution in their countries. In an interview, Mr Trump singled out Christians in Syria
    • Exceptions could be made on a case-by-case basis

    Who is affected by the ban?

    All travellers who have nationality of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen are not permitted to enter the US for 90 days, or be issued an immigrant or non-immigrant visa.

    People who have dual nationality with a non-restricted country are not affected, so long as they travel on the passport from the other country.

    What about people with Green Cards?

    Under the executive order, Green Card holders – permanent legal US residents – from the seven countries were initially subject to the same restrictions, causing widespread concern and confusion.

    Two days after it was signed, the department for homeland security issued a statement saying that permanent legal residents would be determined on a case-by-case basis. But, it said, in the absence of significant information that they posed a threat, their permanent legal status would gain them entry to the US.

    However, on 1 February, Donald McGahn, the legal counsel to the president, then issued a memo saying the travel ban did not apply to lawful permanent residents of the United States.

    What did Trump say?

    Mr Trump said the halt on the refugee programme was needed to give government agencies time to develop a stricter vetting system and ensure that visas were not issued to individuals posing a national security threat.

    “To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting,” the president said in a statement released on Facebook.

    “This is not about religion – this is about terror and keeping our country safe. There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order.”

    Syrians applying for resettlement in the US were already subject to a complex process of background investigation and security screenings, in a process that could take between 18 to 24 months.

    Mr Priebus said the seven countries had been included because Congress and the Obama administration had identified them as “the most watched countries harbouring terrorists”.

    But was it legal?

    This is being hotly contested through the US court system, with dozens of lawsuits filed, and the issue thought likely to end up in the Supreme Court.

    3 February: A Seattle federal judge suspends the order nationwide, in response to a challenge by the Washington State attorney general, who argued that the executive order violated a clause in the US constitution that prohibits the favouring of one religion over another.

    5 February: A request by Mr Trump’s administration for an immediate reinstatement of the order is rejected by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.

    9 February: A three-judge panel in the same court rules unanimously against reinstating the ban, after hearing arguments from lawyers from the Department of Justice and Washington State.

    In a series of tweets since the Seattle ruling, Mr Trump has criticised the suspension, saying the ruling came from a “so-called judge”, and that the courts were “making the job very difficult!”, and later describing the courts as “so political”. After the San Francisco appeals court decision, he tweeted “SEE YOU IN COURT”.

    What are the legal arguments?

    But in 1965, the US Congress passed the Immigration and Nationality Act which said that no person could be “discriminated against in the issuance of an immigrant visa because of the person’s race, sex, nationality, place of birth or place of residence”.

    So, the exclusion of all Syrians would be enough to challenge Mr Trump in court. The fact that they are all Muslim countries lends weight to the critics’s argument that the order is “anti-Muslim”.

    Supporters of Mr Trump’s order mentioned the post-9/11 attacks and the ability of the administration to take measures to protect national security.

    And they cited the president’s powers stemming from a 1952 law on “Inadmissible Aliens” to “suspend the entry” of “any class of aliens” that he finds are detrimental to the interest of the US.

    They also suggested that US presidents can set aside the 1965 law. The most cited example is that of President Jimmy Carter who barred some Iranians during the 1980 hostage crisis.

    How was the order implemented?

    • The order initially triggered a lot confusion and uncertainty. Before its temporary suspension on Friday, a federal judge issued a temporary halt to the deportation of visa holders or refugees stranded at US airports. More than 100 people were detained at airports or in transit
    • Air passengers were prevented from boarding US-bound flights
    • American citizens travelling to the seven countries could be detained for questioning as well in the future, Mr Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus, said

    What do critics say?

    Rights groups say Mr Trump’s order targeted Muslims because of their faith and that no refugees had been convicted of terrorism-related crimes.

    They also said that the most recent attacks in the US were carried out by US nationals or citizens from the countries not included in the travel ban:

    While announcing the plan, Mr Trump cited the attacks of 11 September 2001. But none of the 19 hijackers who committed the attacks came from countries included in the suspension. They were from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Egypt and Lebanon.

    Some pointed out that the list did not include countries where President Trump had business interests – like Saudi Arabia – a suggestion dismissed by the president’s chief of staff as not related.

    The advantages of economy class

    Economy class plane tickets are offered by most airlines in the World, you’re more likely to find free economy class seats than those on superior classes.

    Low cost airlines are getting more and more popular, but they’re still behind the conventional airlines, which are reducing operational costs too, in order to keep up with the competition.

    In your hunt for cheap plane tickets, check the economy class plane ticket offers of the major airlines. They will often have discounts, as well as frequent flyer programs, these usually lack in the case of the low fare carriers.

    Economy class ticket prices vary from hour to hour, from day to day, according to your departure. Yes, this happens in general when you search tickets, but economy class plane tickets can often cost as little as the low cost airlines’ tickets. Or even less! And the comfort level is significantly better on economy than on low cost flights.

    Economy class flights are still the most popular amongst budget airplane travel means. never leave them out in favor of the more marketed low fare flights.

    Flight upgrades: 20 tips for free or cheap business class #airfares

    #where to get cheap airline tickets
    #

    Get free or business on the cheap

    They’re the Holy Grail for regular travellers but while rare, flight upgrades do exist.

    The chances of getting one can be slim, but here are our top 20 tips for boosting your chances of bagging a better seat. Of course, the bulk of these tips won’t be relevant on a budget airline where there is only one class.

    Join frequent flyer schemes before you fly

    The best way to get regular upgrades is to join a frequent flyer scheme and diligently build up points/miles.

    Getting to top levels like ‘Gold’ or ‘Premier’ (varies by airline) gives you huge status at check-in, putting you at the front of the line for any spare expensive seats, and sometimes even equals an upgrade every time one’s available. Of course, to get there, you need to fly regularly and airlines can make it tricky to accrue points on discounted flights.

    If you don’t take to the skies that often, it’s still a good idea to join as most are free and you’re more likely to get an upgrade than if you’ve no relationship with the airline at all.

    Even if you have no intention of sticking with the airline you’re flying with, it could still be worth joining its scheme to leapfrog people who haven’t, and nothing stops you signing up for a few different ones.

    If you have no luck with a free upgrade, loyalty schemes also allow you to use any points to buy an upgrade for some tickets.

    It’s not what you know but who you know

    If you’ve got close friends at the check-in desk, or better still, higher up in the airline, they may be able to wangle you occasional special privileges. Some airlines also give their staff upgrade vouchers, which’ll effectively buy you an upgrade if there’s a higher-class seat available.

    Don’t waste your time or miles on short-haul upgrades. long-haul is where it’s at

    There’s not much point going to the end of the Earth to wangle a free upgrade on a short-haul flight, and certainly little sense in using your flyer points or cash to pay for one. Often, all you get is a slightly bigger seat and a fancier sandwich at best.

    Instead, medium and long-haul flights offer the best value upgrades and you’ll have time to enjoy them. You only tend to get the flat beds and all the bells and whistles on a longer journey.

    What do I get if I upgrade?

    Here we explain the different cabin classes and what you typically get. But before getting into the nitty-gritty, this is about non-budget airline cabins, given the budget carriers only have one class. The four main classes are.

    Economy class. Small seat, basic food, basic service.

    With limited legroom on most long-haul carriers, ‘cattle class’ offers the most basic service, and is primarily the domain of leisure travellers.

    What’s included can vary widely, though. Nifty website SeatGuru shows whether an airline includes in-seat video and games, and if there is a power socket and wi-fi.

    Not on every airline, premium economy offers a similar overall service to regular economy, but around six extra inches of legroom with seats that fold back further, making sleeping much easier – especially if you’re tall.

    Business class. Big and possibly fold-flat seat, luxury food & service, lounge access

    Flying business on European short-haul flights isn’t so exciting; many book it to get access to the lounge (see cheap lounge access instead). Going long-haul business class is a different story, with all sorts of benefits.

    This highly profitable class is made to impress, so travellers get faster check-in, top quality menus, and many long-haul business class seats can be rendered totally flat for sleeping. You can find quasi-classes, such as Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class, which many say is a cross between business and first.

    First class. High-end luxury, exceptional cost, lounge access

    True first class only exists on premium commercial routes, so beware as a few airlines call their business class “first”. It means the crиme de la crиme of comfort, both on the plane and at the airport. Often the seat can be replaced by a full bed with bedding. Massages may also be available, as well as the highest quality of personal concierge service.

    Of course, this level of luxury comes at an eye-watering price. For a transatlantic return, 6,000 isn’t surprising.

    Free upgrades do happen – nearly one in five have got one in the last two years

    They might be less frequent than they used to be, but free upgrades do still exist. In July 2014 we polled our users who’d flown in the last two years and found 16% had been upgraded for free, though of those on a non-budget airline, the figure is 18%.

    How to Get Cheap First Class Airline Tickets

    First-class flights often comes with gourmet food, more legroom and top-notch service. (Photo: greek gourmet food-moussaka 4 image by Svenja98 from Fotolia.com )

    Related Articles

    Items you will need

    • Credit card with elite status Membership in airline loyalty program

    Step 1

    Sign up for airline newsletters to receive word of sales, coupons and discounts. Most carriers will have an email sign up on the website #039;s front page, or you can sign up for compilation newsletters from services like TravelZoo.com. Airlines often run events featuring cut-rate deals on flights, but only for those savvy enough to read their bulletins.

    Step 2

    Fly a particular airline repeatedly to build frequent-flier miles. Accumulated travel equals loyalty in the eyes of a carrier, which often rewards that loyalty with free or cheap first-class upgrades. To obtain a domestic seat with just miles, you #039;ll need between 40,000 and 60,000 miles for most airlines, according to Erica Silverstein of USA Today. For an upgrade from an existing coach reservation, the amount drops to around 15,000 miles for a domestic flight.

    Step 3

    Fly with an airline that has a low-price first-class section. Low-cost carriers have a corresponding cheap first-class section compared with legacy or luxury carriers. These airlines often have loyalty programs that record flights or miles, so the trip can come in handy later on.

    Purchase a special type of ticket that allows a first-class upgrade. One type, known as a K-UP or Y-UP, is an economy fare that allows travel in first class if there is space available, according to international travel tip site Air Travel Genius. You also can purchase a full-fare economy ticket that comes with the option of a complimentary upgrade, if space allows. Silverstein says to check before purchasing, since some airlines mandate that upgrades are limited to elite fliers.

    Use a credit card that grants elite status as a perk. If you use the card to book your flight, the airline might discount the cost of the flight, give an automatic upgrade, or award substantial miles on the purchase. This option is available only to those who qualify for these hard-to-get credit cards.

    How I Flew Around the World in Business Class for $1,

    How I Flew Around the World in Business Class for $1,340

    What’s This?

    By Alissa Haupt 2013-10-15 19:28:44 UTC

    I recently booked a round-trip set of flights from Minneapolis to Shanghai in business class.

    I needed to head back to China to resume teaching English after the end of the photo season in Minneapolis, where I was shooting portraits and wedding photos. I had one week free with which to travel between the two cities, so I planned the craziest round-the-world hop.

    I booked the set of flights using US Airways miles. My route, from Minneapolis – Chicago – Frankfurt – Istanbul – Bangkok – Seoul – Shanghai – Zurich – Munich – Chicago – Minneapolis, included my way home for Christmas during my three-week break.

    Here is what my flight path to Shanghai looked like:

    The cost of the trip was 90,000 US Airways miles.

    In June, I opened my US Airways Master Card, which gave me 30,000 miles after my first purchase. In August, US Airways had a sale of frequent flier miles: buy up to 50,000 miles and get the same amount for free. As it costs 90,000 miles to travel between North America and North Asia in business class, I purchased 30,000 US Airways miles for $1,200 and got the final 30,000 miles for “free.”

    US Airways is a part of Star Alliance, so with those miles I was able to book travel on any of the company’s airline partners. (In fact, despite booking with US Airways, none of my flights were on that carrier.) US Airways is unique as its awards are booked without a computer to tell the booking agent whether or not the reward flight travels over too many miles or segments.

    For example, US Airways reward tickets are supposed to have eight flight segments or less. I was able to book my 10-segment reward after talking to a few different booking agents. US Airways also is unique because it allows you to have an unlimited number of layovers that are 24 hours or less, and one stopover — of any time length — in a city in the same region of your destination. My region was North Asia, so I used my free stopover in Seoul.

    To get my 24-hour stopovers, I simply had to search the reward availabilities on Star Alliance partners. I used United.com to search for reward availability, segment by segment, starting with the hardest first. I made a spreadsheet and a Google map to note available flights and piece them together like a jigsaw puzzle.

    Eventually, I ended up with this itinerary:

    Minneapolis to Chicago on United (15-hour layover in Chicago)

    Chicago to Frankfurt on Lufthansa (24-hour layover in Frankfurt)

    Frankfurt to Istanbul on Lufthansa (8-hour layover in Istanbul)

    Shanghai to Zurich on Swiss (24-hour layover in Zurich)

    Zurich to Munich on Swiss (24-hour layover in Munich)

    Munich to Chicago on Lufthansa (12-hour layover in Chicago)

    Chicago to Minneapolis on United (Home for two weeks over Christmas)

    My final itinerary looked like this:

    In my spreadsheet, I made a note of every flight number, airline and departure time. I called US Airways to book the award and fed the agent each flight segment. I was able to put the flights on hold for three days.

    Once I was certain I wanted to travel on these dates, I called back to book the reward. I had to hang up and call again several times before I found a booking agent who was able to book the tickets for me. The final ticket cost 90,000 miles plus $140 in taxes.

    The total cost of the flights was $1,340, including $1,200 to purchase 30,000 miles and $140 in taxes on the award booking. That is a decent price in economy between Minneapolis and Shanghai, and a great price to fly around the world in business class. According to my quick search on Kayak, it would have cost somewhere between $5,000 in cash to fly between Minneapolis and Shanghai business class on my dates, and $19,000 to book the trip around the world.

    The actual flights were incredible. I felt a bit strange, as I didn’t really need the experience of flying business class. But it was really fantastic to have flat beds up in the sky and eat gourmet multi-course meals on each flight. I really appreciate that I was able to fly in such mega-luxury.

    More so, it was really wonderful to have the ability to hop around the world for one week. I ate wild-roast sausage in the rain in Frankfurt, attempted to only speak German for 24-hours straight (with mixed success) and fired a BB gun at a balloon over the Sea of Marmara in Istanbul (my first time firing any gun, ever). I partied the whole night long with hostel-mates in Bangkok, then had a Thai massage (hangover cure?). I ate Bi Bim Bap in Seoul, and toured tunnels dug by North Koreans under the Demilitarized Zone.

    Needless to say, I am really looking forward to the second half of this award when I’ll experience Switzerland for the first time and see the Christmas markets in Munich.

    Most of my knowledge I gleaned on how to book this reward ticket came from the travel blog Milevalue. It’s a travel blog run by a 26-year-old guy who writes easy-to-read blog posts on how to find and book overly complicated reward flights.

    Travel for me is about freedom — the freedom to be and explore new places, to meet new people and share ideas. Traveling doesn’t need to be as expensive or unattainable as it appears. You just have put in a little leg work.

You have the opportunity to interact with the instructor and ask questions in a cooking class to help you better understand the concepts and techniques.

    Hands on training in the kitchen is the best way to learn how to cook. Whether you are learning from your mother or from a seasoned professional in a cooking class, the fine art of cooking comes from trial and error, patience and repetition.

    To be skilled in the kitchen you need to master many basic cooking techniques, as well as have a handle on general kitchen procedures. As many recipes require an understanding and mastery of more than one technique for a dish to be a success, the more comfortable you become with your abilities, the more you can add additional cooking skills and techniques.

    Welcome to Open Campus! #mcse, #mct, #mcp, #microsoft #certified, #systems #engineer,


    #

    Our Mission.

    The mission of RCCD Distance Education (formerly Open Campus) is to extend access to learning through distance education. Objectives: To facilitate learning at a distance, Distance Education provides:

    • Educational technology to the colleges, faculty, and students to support the delivery of online-based courses and services
    • Professional development and training for faculty
    • Expertise and experience
    • Blackboard management, production and problem solving.

    As of April 21, the Open Campus department has changed its name to Distance Education. We thank you for your patience as we work to complete the changes to website by the middle of summer.

    What Are Online Based or Distance Education classes?

    Online-based courses, also called Distance Education classes, may take two different forms:

    Online classes are taken exclusively over the Internet. Please note that, while some online courses provide all instructional content over the Internet, others may require some on-campus meetings. Please see the course schedule or WebAdvisor for more information.

    Hybrid classes meet both on campus and online. Think of them as a combination or blending of online classes and face-to-face classes.

    In a hybrid class, you will attend meetings on campus during the dates and times listed in the schedule of classes. Since the on-campus portion of hybrid classes could take place at any of our three colleges (Riverside City, Norco or Moreno Valley), hybrid classes are listed in the schedule by the college where the on-campus meetings will take place.

    Are there Face-to-Face classes that use the Internet?

    Web-Enhanced classes are traditional face-to-face classes that are supplemented with course websites and the use of Internet resources. Unlike hybrid or fully-online classes, all web-enhanced class meetings take place on campus.

    Where Do I Start?

    For more information about Blackboard and support, visit

    3. Acquire professional characteristics to function as a member of the dental team.

    Career Options

    According to the Employment Development Department Labor Market Information Division study of 2010-2016, 70 new positions are projected for San Diego County in the area of dental assisting with an average of 120 a year for the next four years.

    Program Philosophy

    The Dental Assisting Program:

    Students accepted into this program will be required to successfully complete DCP, clinically-based courses held in health care facilities. These facilities may require background checks, including fingerprinting and drug screening, as a condition of placement at the clinic.

    Refusal to submit to a background check, or failure to meet clearance criteria established by the health care facility, may prevent placement in the DCP courses and thus, it may not be possible to successfully complete the program.

    Health care facilities also require adherence to strict standards of conduct. Facilities may refuse educational access to any person who does not adhere to the facility’s standards of safety, health and ethical behavior. This may be cause of removal from the program.

    and Electronic Claims Processing

    Medical Billing as a Business

    If you are like many people these days, you may be thinking of starting a medical billing business. How do you know which company is the right one to purchase your Medical Billing Training from? How can you be sure you’re getting the right training products you need to be successful?

    Here at AMBA, our job is to assist you in making an educated purchase decision. Owning and operating your own medical billing business is challenging in itself.

    Choosing the right company could mean the difference
    between your success — and your failure

    The fact is that unless you thoroughly research a company before you invest with them, you could be throwing your hard earned money away. That’s right — you could be out of business even before you start!

    Only you can make the choice —
    Can you afford risking a poor decision?

    You can tell a lot about a company by doing your homework. Researching a company’s history and past performance could save you thousands of dollars — or it could make you feel very comfortable about your purchase decision.

    You could spend literally thousands of dollars buying a package deal to start a medical billing business, but the fact is, you can do it much cheaper and more effectively by taking your time to find the right products at a reasonable price.

    VoIP buying guide for small business

    The cord-cutting movement isn’t limited to consumer cable and Netflix. As Voice over Internet Protocol communication matures and as high-speed Internet becomes cheap and ubiquitous, an increasing number of businesses are ditching conventional landlines and jumping to VoIP.

    VoIP sounds almost magical: The hype makes it sound more flexible, more full-featured, and best of all, significantly cheaper than placing your calls through traditional telephone service providers.

    But is VoIP really all it’s cracked up to be? Are the potential pitfalls worth the potential monetary payoffs? I’ll walk you through the basics, discuss the pros and cons, and take a look at three commercial VoIP services of varying complexity.

    How Does VoIP Work?

    Generally, things are pretty simple if you’re looking for a hosted service. Many of the top VoIP providers handle all the heavy lifting offsite, delivering calls to your phones and software clients without much hassle, especially if you use phones that are plug-and-play certified for the service in question. The majority require no additional on-site hardware aside from those phones; at most, you might need to find a space for a small box of hardware somewhere on-site.

    In contrast, maintaining a self-hosted, on-site VoIP system requires a bit more work. You need an IP-based private branch exchange—a VoIP-friendly version of the PBX phone systems that many offices use—to route your calls to the appropriate phones on your network, as well as a device called a PSTN gateway. The PSTN gateway sits between the IP-PBX software and the analog signals of the public switched telephone network, converting calls to and from digital signals as necessary.

    No matter which option you choose, typically you can handle the basic settings for your phone lines or extensions over the phone, while tweaking more advanced options requires diving into your provider’s online account interface.

    What Do You Need to Implement VoIP?

    Depending on the size of your company and the infrastructure you already have in place, jumping on the VoIP bandwagon could cost your company next to nothing, or it could entail significant up-front costs.

    Even home broadband connections can handle several VoIP calls simultaneously, though you’ll need to be sure to leave bandwidth available for other applications as well. VoIP requires a broadband connection—and the more simultaneous users you have, the more bandwidth you’ll need. If you work alone out of a home office, or if you have only a few employees, you won’t have much to worry about; for example, on my setup, running RingCentral’s Connection Capacity utility shows that my 15-mbps home Comcast connection could handle 11 calls simultaneously even if I had Netflix, Spotify, and an instant-messaging client running on the network at the same time.

    Make sure that your internal network—including your routers and switches—can handle the load, too. Most providers suggest using a router with configurable Quality of Service settings and assigning VoIP traffic high priority to maximize quality.

    If your Internet service provider has a bandwidth cap in place, you should take that into consideration as well. Most VoIP service providers use the high-quality G.711 codec for VoIP communications, which consumes 64kb of data every second you talk. In reality, even a large number of people should be able to chat it up on VoIP without having to worry about hitting bandwidth caps, but you’ll want to keep close tabs on your data usage to avoid exceeding that cap.

    You’ll need a SIP-enabled phone, such as the Snom 300, if you want to make VoIP calls. Finally, even if you subscribe to a cloud-based hosted VoIP service, you’ll need to make sure your phones can communicate over VoIP. Most VoIP systems use session-initiation protocol technology to assign each phone or VoIP software client a specific address; that’s how the IP-PBX routes calls to specific lines. As such, you’ll need a SIP-enabled phone to make VoIP calls. (Some VoIP systems use H.323 technology rather than SIP, but those are rare.) If you want to keep your old analog touch-tone phones or fax machines, you can plug them into an analog telephone adapter (ATA), but they won’t be able to use many of the advanced features that SIP-based VoIP phones provide.

    Long-Term Bipolar I Disorder Treatment #risperdal #class #action


    #

    Learn About RISPERDAL CONSTA (risperidone)

    Long-acting medication for people living with Bipolar I Disorder
    that s taken every 2 weeks and proven to significantly delay
    time to relapse.

    RISPERDAL CONSTA (risperidone) is used for the treatment of schizophrenia and for the longer-term treatment of Bipolar I Disorder .

    IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR RISPERDAL CONSTA

    IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

    Elderly Patients with dementia-related psychosis treated with antipsychotic drugs are at an increased risk of death compared to placebo. RISPERDAL CONSTA (risperidone) is not approved for the treatment of patients with dementia-related psychosis.

    Do not receive RISPERDAL CONSTA if you are allergic to paliperidone, risperidone, or any of the ingredients in RISPERDAL CONSTA .

    Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (NMS) is a rare and potentially fatal side effect reported with RISPERDAL CONSTA and similar medicines. Call your doctor immediately if the person being treated develops symptoms such as high fever; stiff muscles; shaking; confusion; sweating; changes in pulse, heart rate, or blood pressure; or muscle pain and weakness. Treatment should be stopped if the person being treated has NMS.

    Tardive Dyskinesia (TD) is a serious, sometimes permanent side effect reported with RISPERDAL CONSTA and similar medications. TD includes uncontrollable movements of the face, tongue, and other parts of the body. The risk of developing TD and the chance that it will become permanent is thought to increase with the length of therapy and the overall dose taken by the patient. This condition can develop after a brief period of therapy at low doses, although this is much less common. There is no known treatment for TD, but it may go away partially or completely if therapy is stopped.

    Atypical antipsychotic drugs have been associated with metabolic changes that can increase cardiovascular/cerebrovascular risks. These changes may include:

    High blood sugar and diabetes have been reported with RISPERDAL CONSTA and similar medicines. If you already have diabetes or have risk factors such as being overweight or a family history of diabetes, blood sugar testing should be done at the beginning and during the treatment. The complications of diabetes can be serious and even life-threatening. Call your doctor if you develop signs of high blood sugar or diabetes, such as being thirsty all the time, having to urinate or “pass urine” more often than usual, or feeling weak or hungry.

    Changes in cholesterol and triglycerides have been noted in patients taking atypical antipsychotics. Check with your doctor while on treatment.

    Weight gain has been reported in patients taking atypical antipsychotics. Monitor weight gain while on treatment.

    RISPERDAL CONSTA and similar medications can raise the blood levels of a hormone known as prolactin, causing a condition known as hyperprolactinemia. Blood levels of prolactin remain elevated with continued use. Some side effects seen with these medications include the absence of a menstrual period; breasts producing milk; the development of breasts by males; and the inability to achieve an erection.

    Some people taking RISPERDAL CONSTA may feel faint or lightheaded when they stand up or sit up too quickly. By standing up or sitting up slowly and following your healthcare professional’s dosing instructions, this side effect can be reduced or it may go away over time.

    Patients (particularly the elderly) taking antipsychotics with certain health conditions or those on longterm therapy should be evaluated by their healthcare professional for the potential risk of falls.

    Blood problems such as low numbers of white blood cells have been reported in patients taking risperidone and similar medications. In some cases it has been serious and life-threatening. Depending upon your medical condition, your doctor may choose to test your blood as you start therapy with RISPERDAL CONSTA .

    RISPERDAL CONSTA may affect your alertness or driving ability; therefore, do not drive or operate machinery before talking to your healthcare professional.

    RISPERDAL CONSTA should be used cautiously in people with a seizure disorder, who have had seizures in the past, or who have conditions that increase their risk for seizures.

    Painful, long lasting erections have been reported with the use of RISPERDAL CONSTA . Call your doctor immediately if you think you are having this problem.

    Extrapyramidal Symptoms (EPS) are usually persistent movement disorders or muscle disturbances, such as restlessness, tremors, and muscle stiffness. If you observe any of these symptoms, talk to your healthcare professional.

    Inform your healthcare professional if you become pregnant or intend to become pregnant during therapy with RISPERDAL CONSTA . Caution should be used when administering RISPERDAL CONSTA to a nursing woman.

    RISPERDAL CONSTA may make you more sensitive to heat. You may have trouble cooling off, or be more likely to become dehydrated, so take care when exercising or when doing things that make you warm.

    Some medications interact with RISPERDAL CONSTA . Please inform your healthcare professional of any medications or supplements that you are taking. Avoid alcohol while taking RISPERDAL CONSTA .

    In studies of people taking RISPERDAL CONSTA . the most common side effects in the treatment of schizophrenia were headache, slow movements (including tremor [shaking], stiffness, and a shuffling walk), dizziness, restlessness, tiredness, constipation, indigestion, sleepiness, weight gain, pain in the limbs, and dry mouth.

    In studies of people taking RISPERDAL CONSTA . the most common side effects in the treatment of schizophrenia were headache, slow movements (including tremor [shaking], stiffness, and a shuffling walk), dizziness; feeling of inner restlessness or needing to be constantly moving; tiredness, constipation, indigestion, sleepiness, weight gain, pain in the limbs, and dry mouth.

    In studies of people taking RISPERDAL CONSTA . the most common side effects in the treatment of bipolar disorder were weight gain (when used alone) and slow movements (including with tremor [shaking], stiffness, and a shuffling walk) and tremor (when used with lithium or valproate).

    This is not a complete list of all possible side effects. Ask your doctor or treatment team if you have any questions or want more information.

    If you have any questions about RISPERDAL CONSTA or your therapy, talk with your doctor.

    You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch. or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

    Eusporangia vs Leptosporangia
    (Similarities and Differences between Leptosporangia and Eusporangia of Pteridophytes)

    Sporangia are the specialized spore producing structures found in plants. In Pteridophytes, two types of sporangia are present. The two types of sporangia are (1) Eusporangium and (2) Leptosporangium. This classification is proposed by Goebel in 1881 based on the developmental pattern of sporangia. The spores produced in the Eusporangium are called eusporangiospores and those produced in the Leptosporangium are called leptosporangiospores.

    Eusporangium:The sporangium develops from a GROUP of INITIAL cells and such a development is called development.

    Leptosporangium:The sporangium develops from a SINGLE INITIAL cell and such a development is called Leptosporangiate development.

    The present post describes the Similarities and Differences between a Eusporangium and Leptosporangium.

    Similarities between Eusporangium and Leptosporangium

    Ø Both Eusporangia and Leptosporangia are the spore producing structures in vascular plants.

    Ø Both are formed on the sporophyll (a specialized leaf) of the diploid sporophytic plant.

    Ø Both produce haploid spores after meiosis.

    Ø The first division of the initials of both sporangia is periclinal (transverse division).

    Difference between Eusporangium and Leptosporangium

    Pteridophytes General Characteristics
    (General Characters of Pteridophytes – The Vascular Cryptogams)

    Pteridophytes are plants with Feather like Leaves

    Pteridophytes are a group of primitive land plants belongs to the Cryptogams. They are the first evolved plant group with vascular tissue system for the conduction of water and food materials. Due to the presence of vascular tissue, they are called as Vascular Cryptogams. The term Pteridophyte is derived from two words ‘Pteron’ meaning feather and ‘phyton’ meaning plant. Thus, Pteridophytes are the plants with Feather-like leaves. Pteridophytes occupy the intermediate position between Bryophytes and Phanerogams (seed plants). The important characteristics of Pteridophytes are summarized below:

    Ø They were originated in the Silurian period and flourished in the Devonian period.

    Ø They are known as ‘Vascular Cryptogams ’ cryptogams with vascular system.

    Ø They show heteromorphic alternation of generation with prominent Sporophytic and Gametophytic phases.

    Ø The main plant body of Pteridophyte is the sporophytic plant (diploid).

    Ø The gametophytic and sporophytic generations are two independent plants (not physically connected).

    Habit and Habitat of Pteridophytes

    Ø Pteridophytes show much variation in form, size, and habitat.

    Bryophytes vs Pteridophytes
    (Similarities and Difference between Bryophytes and Pteridophytes)

    Bryophytes are most primitive land plants predominantly grow in moist and shaded places. Bryophytes are known as the Amphibians of Plant Kingdom since water is essential for the completion of their life cycle. The Bryophytes includes three groups of plants such as Liverworts, Hornworts and Mosses.

    Marketing Management Degrees: Bachelor’s, Associate & Online Class Info

    Studying Marketing Management: Degrees at a Glance

    Marketing managers plan and design the promotion of a product or service. Specialists in the field understand consumer behavior and build advertising campaigns designed to catch an audience’s attention. The marketing management major provides a broad education in communications, merchandising and business regulations. Graduates of these programs work in purchasing, customer relations and promotions, to name a few.

    An associate degree program offers a foundation in marketing theories and concepts; you will learn the promotional and advertising techniques employed in multiple industries. The bachelor’s degree program provides a deeper understanding of the field through courses that emphasize the analysis of business administration concepts.

    The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) revealed that advertising sales agents and marketing managers could expect job growth of 13-14% from 2010-2020, while retail buyers could expect a 7% increase in job growth for the same time period (www.bls.gov ).

    Who is this degree for?

    People who want to pursue a career in advertising or marketing management

    Associate Degree in Marketing Management

    An associate degree program can prepare you for entry-level careers in demonstration, promotion and advertising. Schools design their programs to offer a basic understanding of market research, advertising and digital marketing. You may choose from a specialization in industrial sales and marketing or advertising. Marketing requires creativity and solid communication skills; programs place emphasis on creative development and integrated communications. You can expect to take courses in psychology that examine human behavior in the context of buying habits.

    Pros and Cons

    Pros

    • Positions available to associate degree holders paid relatively competitive mean annual salaries in 2011
    • Some programs offer specialization, which provides flexibility and a customized learning experience
    • Some positions require a high school diploma and your degree can influence your marketability

    Cons

    • Programs may not prepare you for a career in marketing management
    • Bachelor’s degree holders will experience the best job prospects for advertising sales positions
    • Some programs do not offer coursework that emphasizes statistics or marketing research concepts

    Common Courses and Requirements

    Training in marketing research, promotional trends and visual merchandising is often included in these roughly 60-credit programs. Some programs offer a concentration in sports marketing, digital business, entrepreneurship or professional selling. You may be required to take an internship and apply your knowledge in a supervised, hands-on setting. Following are some common courses offered by these programs:

    • E-commerce marketing
    • Retail management
    • Consumer behavior
    • Services marketing
    • Buying and merchandising
    • International marketing

    Online Degree Info

    Online degree programs exist and some schools provide training through a complete online experience. Completing this degree can take 18 to 24 months, depending on your schedule. Distance-education programs usually offer coursework similar to traditional options. Some schools design courses that transfer to a bachelor’s degree program and the curriculum accommodates working professionals.

    Stand Out with This Degree

    Experience in sales or customer service can influence access to job opportunities. The BLS reports that advertising sales agents with a proven record of accomplishment in sales techniques will enjoy better job prospects. Following are a few steps you can take to stand out:

    • Take internship opportunities at sales or marketing firms. Gaining experience during your time in school offers the ability to apply your training immediately and consult with your instructors if you have questions about the complexities of sales or marketing.
    • Enroll in customer service classes. If your college offers elective courses in customer service representative – also known as CSR – training, consider enrolling to increase your interaction skills.

    Bachelor’s in Marketing Management

    The bachelor’s degree program expands the marketing management education to include product management, distribution and strategic marketing. Schools design programs to deliver training in advanced communication, data analysis and finance. Some schools offer an accelerated degree program that requires applicants to have already earned an associate degree. You can find employment in fields like marketing management, market analysis or business development. Many universities offer enriching campus-based programs, including marketing competitions or access to student chapters of marketing associations.

    Pros and Cons

    Pros

    • Marketing managers – with the appropriate experience – earned a mean annual salary of $126,000*
    • Market research analysts could expect 41% job growth over the 2010-2020 decade**
    • Many programs offer specialization, which provides a highly flexible and tailored learning experience

    Cons

    • Associate degree holders earned mean salaries comparable to bachelor’s degree holders, for example: buyers earned $57,000*
    • Market research analyst positions may require a master’s degree, especially those in leadership
    • You can expect strong competition against experienced specialists and managers for marketing manager, advertising or promotion positions

    Source: *U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (May 2011 figures), **U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (2010-2020 job growth projections).

    Common Courses and Requirements

    The bachelor’s degree program may require major preparatory coursework in addition to core and general education courses. You may also take a capstone course and marketing electives to round out the roughly 120 credits required by the program. Some schools require a combination of advanced training, guided marketing classes and free electives. You will take courses in marketing principles, strategic management, sales and distribution management, business finance, brand management, business law and international business.

    Online Degree Info

    The online bachelor’s degree program is usually designed for working professionals or people running their own business. Similarly to campus-based programs, online programs require roughly 120 credits in courses. You will study accounting and finance, marketing and communication, business law, ethics and economics. Some schools deliver their online programs in a non-credit format and require the completion of assessments to determine your progress. Keep in mind, this structure may be best suited to those with substantial work experience in the marketing field.

    Stand Out with This Degree

    Experience can influence how well you perform in the job market. Employers may prefer candidates who have some experience in sales, promotions or marketing prior to making a job offer. Following are some steps you can take to enhance your marketability:

    • Take courses in digital advertising and marketing. The newspaper publishing industry – one of the top employers of marketing managers – was set to decline by 22% over the 2010-2020 decade, due to the increasing popularity of electronic media. Experience with the languages used in digital advertising – like Flash, Javascript, CSS or HTML – may make job prospects more promising.
    • Take an internship in the industry that interests you. For example, if you want to work in retail, take an internship in a retailer’s marketing department. Employers prefer to hire candidates with experience and a proven record of accomplishment.

    What Is Premium Economy Class?

    Premium economy class seats typically offer more legroom than you’ll find in the economy section. (Photo: Stephen Schauer/Lifesize/Getty Images )

    Related Articles

    In recent years, airlines have looked for ways in which they can maximize their earning potential. While some airlines have started charging for checked baggage or charging flight change fees, many airlines also now offer a premium economy class for a higher rate. While premium economy class offers some substantive features that make it an upgrade over economy class, it should not be confused with business class.

    Difference

    Although the features in the premium economy section may differ depending on the airline and plane type, premium economy seating generally is likely to include 1 to 2 inches more seat width than in economy class, a seat that reclines 2 to 3 inches more, and adjustable headrests. The premium economy class seating also may include larger personal video screens, power ports for laptops and electronic devices, and more food choices.

    Cost

    Travelers should be prepared to pay a significant amount more for premium seating. According to a Seatguru.com study, premium economy cross-Atlantic flights that are booked in advance cost 85 percent more than normal economy-class tickets. Booking a premium economy ticket closer to the departure date might make the ticket for premium economy class drop to about 35 percent higher than a normal economy ticket. Cross-Pacific flights didn’t have as large a difference in price based on when a traveler booked his tickets; however, travelers paid about 95 percent more for premium economy class on these flights than they would have in economy class.

    Premium vs. Business Class

    Business class seating is approximately 65 percent more expensive than premium economy class seating. Business class seating also offers more than 50 percent legroom. The business class seats are able to recline more than seats in premium economy class. Travelers are more likely to find significant headrests and leg rests in business class as well. Business class travelers also have a wider variety of food and beverage choices.

    Recommended Reviews

    This is my second review for First Class Travel, and the second time Donna at First Class Travel has come through for me.  First, let me say that I travel more than the average person. (Twice a year I leave the country for a month at a time.)  Like many people today, I plan out most of my trips myself, and mostly book my own flights and accommodations on line.  However, when I want to put together an itinerary for a trip that is more complicated than most I have found that Donna has not only made it easy, but has saved me money as well.

    I was planning a month long trip to the Philippines and Thailand over the holiday season.  Since I had never been to these two countries, I was making up my trip as I went along.  For this trip, the only thing I really knew were the dates that I wanted to fly.  I tried finding two separate flights, or book flights to two destinations on line but it was a bit harder than I thought.  In addition, the flights I was looking at on line were not convenient and were more expensive than what I expected.  After spending several hours over several days trying to get the flights that I wanted on line, I realized it was time to call Donna.

    Donna remembered me even though I hadn t used her services for over two years.  Donna s knowledge of airlines and flight schedules and her ability to combine flight made it possible for me to get the schedules I wanted at fares that were reasonable for the holiday season.  In addition to that, I estimated that even with her fee, she saved me a few hundred dollars compared to what I would have paid if I tried to book the same flights myself on line.  Donna also sold me trip insurance that would reimburse me if I needed to cancel my trip for any reason.  This is important to me because unfortunately things do happen in life.

    If your travel plans are not run of the mill (like a trip that involves multiple destinations on several flight) I would suggest using Donna at First Class Travel.  She will save you time and aggravation.

    How I Flew Around the World in Business Class for $1,

    How I Flew Around the World in Business Class for $1,340

    What’s This?

    By Alissa Haupt 2013-10-15 19:28:44 UTC

    I recently booked a round-trip set of flights from Minneapolis to Shanghai in business class.

    I needed to head back to China to resume teaching English after the end of the photo season in Minneapolis, where I was shooting portraits and wedding photos. I had one week free with which to travel between the two cities, so I planned the craziest round-the-world hop.

    I booked the set of flights using US Airways miles. My route, from Minneapolis – Chicago – Frankfurt – Istanbul – Bangkok – Seoul – Shanghai – Zurich – Munich – Chicago – Minneapolis, included my way home for Christmas during my three-week break.

    Here is what my flight path to Shanghai looked like:

    The cost of the trip was 90,000 US Airways miles.

    In June, I opened my US Airways Master Card, which gave me 30,000 miles after my first purchase. In August, US Airways had a sale of frequent flier miles: buy up to 50,000 miles and get the same amount for free. As it costs 90,000 miles to travel between North America and North Asia in business class, I purchased 30,000 US Airways miles for $1,200 and got the final 30,000 miles for “free.”

    US Airways is a part of Star Alliance, so with those miles I was able to book travel on any of the company’s airline partners. (In fact, despite booking with US Airways, none of my flights were on that carrier.) US Airways is unique as its awards are booked without a computer to tell the booking agent whether or not the reward flight travels over too many miles or segments.

    For example, US Airways reward tickets are supposed to have eight flight segments or less. I was able to book my 10-segment reward after talking to a few different booking agents. US Airways also is unique because it allows you to have an unlimited number of layovers that are 24 hours or less, and one stopover — of any time length — in a city in the same region of your destination. My region was North Asia, so I used my free stopover in Seoul.

    To get my 24-hour stopovers, I simply had to search the reward availabilities on Star Alliance partners. I used United.com to search for reward availability, segment by segment, starting with the hardest first. I made a spreadsheet and a Google map to note available flights and piece them together like a jigsaw puzzle.

    Eventually, I ended up with this itinerary:

    Minneapolis to Chicago on United (15-hour layover in Chicago)

    Chicago to Frankfurt on Lufthansa (24-hour layover in Frankfurt)

    Frankfurt to Istanbul on Lufthansa (8-hour layover in Istanbul)

    Shanghai to Zurich on Swiss (24-hour layover in Zurich)

    Zurich to Munich on Swiss (24-hour layover in Munich)

    Munich to Chicago on Lufthansa (12-hour layover in Chicago)

    Chicago to Minneapolis on United (Home for two weeks over Christmas)

    My final itinerary looked like this:

    In my spreadsheet, I made a note of every flight number, airline and departure time. I called US Airways to book the award and fed the agent each flight segment. I was able to put the flights on hold for three days.

    Once I was certain I wanted to travel on these dates, I called back to book the reward. I had to hang up and call again several times before I found a booking agent who was able to book the tickets for me. The final ticket cost 90,000 miles plus $140 in taxes.

    The total cost of the flights was $1,340, including $1,200 to purchase 30,000 miles and $140 in taxes on the award booking. That is a decent price in economy between Minneapolis and Shanghai, and a great price to fly around the world in business class. According to my quick search on Kayak, it would have cost somewhere between $5,000 in cash to fly between Minneapolis and Shanghai business class on my dates, and $19,000 to book the trip around the world.

    The actual flights were incredible. I felt a bit strange, as I didn’t really need the experience of flying business class. But it was really fantastic to have flat beds up in the sky and eat gourmet multi-course meals on each flight. I really appreciate that I was able to fly in such mega-luxury.

    More so, it was really wonderful to have the ability to hop around the world for one week. I ate wild-roast sausage in the rain in Frankfurt, attempted to only speak German for 24-hours straight (with mixed success) and fired a BB gun at a balloon over the Sea of Marmara in Istanbul (my first time firing any gun, ever). I partied the whole night long with hostel-mates in Bangkok, then had a Thai massage (hangover cure?). I ate Bi Bim Bap in Seoul, and toured tunnels dug by North Koreans under the Demilitarized Zone.

    Needless to say, I am really looking forward to the second half of this award when I’ll experience Switzerland for the first time and see the Christmas markets in Munich.

    Most of my knowledge I gleaned on how to book this reward ticket came from the travel blog Milevalue. It’s a travel blog run by a 26-year-old guy who writes easy-to-read blog posts on how to find and book overly complicated reward flights.

    Travel for me is about freedom — the freedom to be and explore new places, to meet new people and share ideas. Traveling doesn’t need to be as expensive or unattainable as it appears. You just have put in a little leg work.

    Cheap Airline Flights For Business Class

    Businessmen tend to travel more often than the regular customers, because of their overseas conferences and business meetings. This situation is common if they have their clients and business associates residing in different countries. This is why they often look for affordable modes of travel. This article comprises of information on getting cheap airline flights for business class.

    First of all, flying in business class is the best method of negotiating the prices of tickets. If you wish to get tickets at reduced prices, you can seek advice from the airline staff. If many seats are vacant in business class, they might sell you the tickets at reduced rates. If you are travelling during the “off season” and the company already has lots of vacant seats, they may try to sell them off at discount prices. It is recommended that you browse through their official website for information on cheap airline flights.

    If you frequently make your stay in prestigious hotels of the city, you can try their travel packages. Some five star hotels award you points, as a part of their reward program. In case you are frequently staying in the same hotel, you can increase your points. Sometimes, the reward of such programs is an airline ticket. So, in order to become entitled to such programs, you should search for those motels that offer such deals for the business class.

    You can also get tickets to cheap airline flights by subscribing for a travel agency or an airline company. These agencies often offer you special discounts and promotional offers. You can easily access these offers if you are their regular member.

    Sometimes, local clubs, business society, certain malls, big shops, cafes and a select few offices run special deals for businessmen. By becoming a member, you can easily access cheap airline flights during holiday seasons and the weekends.

    Last but not the least, have you tried searching for a couple of one way tickets? Well you are a businessman isn t it? You should be calculative and smart. Sometimes, if you purchase 2 one-way tickets, you can get amazing deals and discounts. By following this method, you can get tickets for $ 100 or less.

    So, don t just stick to the same old method of checking out Travelocity or Priceline, in order to book cheap airline flights. Be creative and try the tips mentioned in this article! You might save plenty of bucks this way!
