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

Last Chance: 60k Bonus Miles and Waived Annual Fee

When you think of incredible mileage currencies, you don’t really think of Delta SkyMiles. Delta’s frequent flyer programme is unique in that Delta never announces any changes to their programme and rather implements them whenever they feel like it – which is why SkyMiles is a horrible frequent flyer programme. Nevertheless, there are still some fantastic uses of SkyMiles – especially on short flights within… Read More

The Best North American Lufthansa First Class Route

Lufthansa First Class is an incredible way to fly – end of story. No other airline is able to provide such an amazing and consistent First Class experience from the moment you arrive at the airport to the moment you end your journey. The issue is that Lufthansa is still removing First Class from many aircraft and their new aircraft going forward won’t feature First… Read More

Most Relaxing Destination: Fiji

It is no secret that I love travel (obviously). I’ve been very lucky to be able to travel around the world and visit some incredible destinations. I’ve been on every continent already and have visited dozens of countries (I probably should count them). My most memorable trips are those that I’ve taken with family and friends – not the ones where I travelled alone. There… Read More

New Partnership: Alaska Airlines and Aer Lingus

Alaska Airlines, Seattle’s Hometown Airline, has formally announced a few days ago their new partnership with Irish airline Aer Lingus. This should come as no surprise given that Aer Lingus is introducing flights to Seattle as of 18 May. The Irish airline also serves Los Angeles and San Francisco – Alaska’s gateway cities. In total, Aer Lingus serves 13 cities in North America from Dublin. The new Alaska… Read More

American Express Cards I Currently Have

American Express is my favourite card issuer – they have generous sign-up bonuses, fantastic card benefits, their points transfer to a number of airlines and hotels, their customer service is amazing, and they have their own airport lounges. On top of that, just about anyone will be approved for an American Express card as long as your credit history is clean and you have some… Read More

British Airways Executive Club will become Revenue-Based

Air France was the first European airline to announce a switch to a revenue-based frequent flyer programme, whereby members will earn miles based on the ticket price and not the distance flown/booking class. Air France also announced that in the future, revenue-based redemptions will be introduced – the cost of the ticket in miles will change as the revenue price changes. Lufthansa was the next… Read More

Fantastic SWISS First Availability (Miles & More)

SWISS International Air Lines, the premium carrier in the Lufthansa Group, offers First Class on all long-haul routes. Lufthansa only offers First Class service to select destinations and therefore it is increasingly becoming harder and harder to book Lufthansa First Class. However, SWISS First Class awards remain wide open for Miles & More Senators and HON Circle Members. LX First isn’t as popular as Lufthansa… Read More

Lufthansa Improves First Class Upgrades

Lufthansa recently announced a positive enhancement to Miles & More upgrade awards on Lufthansa flights. Specifically, all Lufthansa revenue Business Class fares are now eligible to be upgraded to First Class using miles or eVouchers. Previously, only the more expensive tickets purchased in Business Class were eligible for upgrades. Lufthansa First Class is the way to fly and I’m glad there are more opportunities to… Read More

LOT Polish Airlines Bookable with Aeroplan Again

Aeroplan, Air Canada’s frequent flyer programme, is one of my favourites when it comes to Star Alliance award redemptions. Aeroplan is incredibly generous when it comes to routing rules – you can have two stopovers in addition to a destination on round-trip award tickets, and with generous maximum permitted mileage, you can even create a mini-RTW with a simple round-trip booking. Furthermore, Aeroplan is an… Read More
