Coming Soon: Redeem Avios on Fiji Airways

Fiji Airways will soon join oneworld connect – the airline won’t be a full oneworld member but will rather be a connecting partner for oneworld and the goal is to transport passengers from/to oneworld airlines on Fiji Airways throughout the South Pacific. For most oneworld elite members (Sapphire and Emerald), this won’t mean much as the only benefits that will apply will be Priority Check-In… Read More

Why I Love Miles & More

In my eyes, Lufthansa is the world’s best airline with the world’s best First Class product. No other airline comes close to the consistent and phenomenal First Class experience that Lufthansa offers. Naturally, since I’m loyal to the Lufthansa Group, it only makes sense to be loyal to Miles & More – the combined frequent flyer programme of the Lufthansa Group and several other European… Read More

Lufthansa Lounge Access with AMEX Platinum Card

The American Express Platinum Card is widely considered “the” premium travel credit card, as it was the first to include lounge access, airline credit, premium concierge service, and more. In the past few years, many banks have created their own premium travel credit card which features lounge access, airline credits, point transfers to airlines, etc. and AMEX has been enhancing the Platinum Card more and… Read More

I Need a European Version of TSA PreCheck

As much as we all complain about the TSA and their ridiculous procedures that often don’t make sense, I think we can all agree that TSA PreCheck is the greatest thing that’s happened to airport security in the USA. I love not having to remove anything from my bag (or my shoes) and pass through security in literally 10-15 seconds.. it is amazing and something… Read More

Aeroplan Blocking LOT Polish Airlines… Again

Look, Aeroplan, I love you but I am really starting to see why Air Canada is leaving you in 2020. Your constant airline blocking, more rude call centre agents, and refusing to waive phone booking fees (especially when your website doesn’t work) is insane and not how a frequent flyer programme should operate… so AC is tired of you… loyal AC flyers are also tired… Read More

The Lufthansa Group has announced today the introduction of Economy Light fares on North American routes as of this summer. Passengers travelling to North America on Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian, and Brussels Airlines will have the option to purchase an Economy Light fare which does not allow any changes or cancellations and only includes 8kg of free hand baggage with NO checked in baggage free of… Read More

AMEX Freezing MR Points After Referral and Sign-Up Bonus

American Express used to be my favourite card issuer of credit cards that earn lots of miles & points. Over the years, the prestigious AMEX standard has gone way down – the customer service is terrible, the sign-up bonuses are “once-in-a-lifetime”, and there hasn’t been any new card offerings that would attract customers. The one area where American Express still shines are the Centurion Lounges… Read More

Lufthansa Introduces Pyjamas and Mattresses in Business Class

Late last year, Lufthansa announced that starting in 2020 with the delivery of their new Boeing 777-9, the airline will install a new, revolutionary Business Class seat with direct aisle access from every seat. The new Business Class seat will feature much more privacy, more storage, more shoulder space, larger monitors, and “wonderful sleep”! Sneak-Preview gefällig? Hier ein Rendering vom neuen Business-Class-Sitz, der ab 2020… Read More

Will Marriott Remove SPG Airline Transfers?

There has been a lot of discussion lately about the possibility of Marriott removing the ability to transfer SPG points to airlines – this speculation comes from the fact that Marriott will be hosting an event soon in which they’re supposed to reveal details about the new, combined programme for both hotel chains. Could Marriott remove SPG airline transfers overnight without notifying members in advance?… Read More
