Live From A Lounge Advertising Disclosure

All travel that is talked about on this site is self-funded, and all airline and hotel reviews are done without the notice or approval of the companies involved. No airline or hotel chain sponsors or endorses the content on this site, with the exception of certain reader giveaways, which are clearly labelled as such. To provide this kind of independent content, we generate income from this site in a few ways.

Display advertising

These are the advertisements you see in the sidebar or sprinkled throughout the page.

Display advertisements are typically contracted through the BoardingArea network, and we have little influence or control over what advertisers are selected or what advertisements are shown.

Occasionally LFAL will sell display ads directly, but we keep those arrangements entirely separate from the editorial content.

Partnered posts

On very rare occasions, we may accept a fee from an advertiser for a partnered post.

This will always be labelled with an additional disclosure so that you know the content itself was paid for directly.

Affiliate relationships

The other source of income is from earning a commission through affiliate networks when readers purchase certain products that we’ve linked to from LFAL. As an Amazon Associate, we earn from qualifying purchases.
