Weekly Recap: July 24, 2016

Hi Folks. I just got back from my first mileage run this morning, and 4 back to back flights is not much fun. Thank god for the upgrades. Wonder how Ajay gets on a plane ever so often!

This has been a week full of nostalgia. We turned 5 years old. Ajay spent the entire day filling me up with how his passion for getting on a plane turned into writing and has today resulted into a strong community with all of us. We feel proud that today, we are the the first port of call for anyone looking for an analytical answer to their questions about travel and loyalty programs in India. We are equally humbled with the way all of you have come back ever so often to read and share your own views about all the stuff we write. THANK YOU once again.

To say Thank You, we have kicked off giveaways beginning today to give away prizes over the coming few weekends. Don’t forget to keep a look out and participate. Now over to everything we covered this week.
