Show Notes: About Kerwin Mckenzie

Fellow travel lover, travel blogger, ex-airline worker, and
plane enthusiast. He’s traveled to 125 countries and flown on 180
airlines!!

Kerwin knows all there is to know about flights and current
travel restrictions. As I mentioned, I can’t even keep up with
what’s in my kitchen cupboard to know what to cook for dinner
each night.

Kerwin knows an incredible amount about the airline industry –
more than anyone I have ever met. He has years of experience AND
has built a fascinating life around his passion for planes.

So we bring on the experts to help you.

Mostly, Kerwin is one of the warmest, friendliest, most joyful
people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. I love catching up with
him a couple of times a year at conferences.

    lover

    cancellations and refunds and a handy tip to get a refund even when
    the airline doesn’t let you know you can get one!
