Last December I looked for some low level award flights in BusinessElite with the itinerary starting in Frankfurt. I narrowed down my search to a roundtrip between FRA and JFK and for dates in the summer. As already written in my travel plans for this year I then found low level flights on the following dates

Day Date Org Dest Flight No Dep Time Arr Time Plane Type
Sun 06/30 FRA JFK DL 107 1345 1625 B767-300ER
Fri 07/05 JFK FRA DL 106 2009 1020 B767-300ER

After my post last December it just happened so that a few schedule changes occurred. As mentioned, this roundtrip was priced at the low level, so I spent 200k miles for the two of us. That was awesome, however, the cash part (taxes and fees) was not quite nice, it were a little more than 480 EUR per person that needed to be paid out of pocket. Well, that’s the way it is. At least the number of miles was reasonable.

I then looked at Hilton and Starwood hotels to find some accomodation for that period. A main factor in deciding was the room rate, so I ended up in booking the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in the Financial District.

Fall 2012 Vacation in California: DoubleTree by Hilton CVG

After landing at CVG and picking up our bags we went outside the terminal building to the hotel shuttle area and waited for our shuttle. Considering how near the hotel is to the airport it was kind of funny that waiting for the shuttle was the longest part. Well, bad timing 😉
