The Higher Flyer is a travel blog that caters to a relatively niche audience. Its posts are thematically consistent, and the vast majority of its articles are write-ups, analyses, and commentaries on the news; guides and advice sections on how to maximize purchasing power; and trip reports and reviews of various airlines and hotels.
