About Johnny Jet

I'm Johnny. I started this newsletter/website for fun. It all began when I e-mailed a few friends who traveled a lot, and wanted to earn as many miles as I did. This site is for everyone! It has become the “first stop” for thousands of travelers. Those who contribute to Johnny Jet share my vision — and I share theirs.

Travel Tip of the Day: MileCalc

MileCalc-610x317

MileCalc It’s just about that time—that time when mileage junkies start flying all across the globe and returning home without leaving the airport. Why do they do this?

Travel Tip of the Day: How to Tell Which Side the Fuel Tank Is On

Gas

How to Tell Which Side the Fuel Tank Is On After all these years of driving and renting cars, you would think I’d know (rather than having to guess) which side the gas tank is on. Instead, it took a ridiculous BuzzFeed article to teach me that most cars have an arrow on the fuel […]

Pretty much every traveler I know (especially iPhone users) finds keeping their phone charged a real and constant challenge on the road.

Travel Website of the Week: Barclaycard Travel Community

Barclaycard

When I went down to Delaware recently, my friends from Barclaycard told me all about their Barclaycard Travel Community. Initially I thought to myself, “Yeah, yeah, every site and company has a travel community,” but then they said something that really made me perk up: Members earn miles for their community activity, which is a huge […]

Travel Tip of the Day: Get a Scough

Scough

Get a Scough Here’s a brilliant idea that’s just in time for the Ebola panic. Most travelers don’t want to wear a silly-looking surgeon’s mask to stay healthy or keep their germs in on the plane. But thanks to a new scarf that has built-in protection (carbon filter), they don’t have to. With the Scough, you […]
