Wondering what to expect when it comes to elite benefits for your hotel status during the COVID-19 crisis?
This week, Ed is joined by Kevin Carter. He oversees a portfolio of full-service, limited service, and select service hotels from popular brands like Hilton and IHG.
Ed has spent plenty of time wondering what to expect when he finally decides to start traveling again. But what does a free breakfast even look like in the world of COVID-19 (early reports aren’t good)?
Kevin Carter, a 40-year veteran of the hospitality industry, shares some insights from a hotel executive’s perspective on what to expect in the future.
- Does the Chase Sapphire Reserve have a new, temporary 5X category?
- Travel bookings and searches are both down. Are people scared to travel?
- Spirit Airlines will sell you just about everything you need to fly. Including your COVID-19 protection???
- The most elegant lady in the air, the Queen of the Skies Boeing 747, will be halting production in the near future.
In addition to this, Ed wants your help with a quick survey to help make the podcast better. He’s giving away a couple of $50 gift cards to two random folks who take 2 minutes to fill out the survey.
