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

Lufthansa’s frequent spending flyer programme, Miles & More, is the latest programme to offer miles for ordering wine. You can earn 2k Miles & More award miles with the first shipment and 5 award miles for every dollar spent for every shipment thereafter.

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

Alaska Airlines Enhances First Class

Alaska Airlines’ First Class isn’t industry leading. Yes, there are power ports and WiFi, but the food is often the same for months. Chicken anyone? The one improvement Alaska has made over the years is to remove one row of First Class (reducing four to three rows) in order to enhance legroom for First Class passengers. While all major airlines are installing flat-bed seats on select aircraft… Read More

Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Allows Award Holds

Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer is a frequent flyer programme I use a lot for travelling from Europe to the Middle East. Business Class costs only 25k miles one-way, First Class used to cost just 35k miles – but that was changed recently due to the programme’s devaluation. Nevertheless, being able to fly from Europe to the Middle East for just 25k miles in Business Class on… Read More

Flying Long-Haul Economy Because It Is Cheap?

Over the years, I’ve been very fortunate to fly Economy Class the least during all of my travels. This is mainly thanks to miles & points, but also due to how cheap Business (and Economy) Class has become over the past few years. You can generally now fly from North America to Europe round-trip for $300 in Economy Class… something that was unthinkable a few… Read More

Fantastic 20 Minute Royal Jordanian Flight

I recently redeemed 100k American Airlines AAdvantage miles for travel from Tel Aviv to Brisbane in First Class via Amman, Abu Dhabi, and Sydney. The longest segment was Etihad Airways A380 First Class from Abu Dhabi to Sydney. The taxes on this ticket were just under $100 USD, which I consider an incredible redemption. The first flight from Tel Aviv to Amman was short at… Read More

5 Reasons Why United Polaris Service is Awful

United Airlines, a founding member of the Star Alliance, is the worst full-service and “traditional” airline in America. From rude flight attendants, to incompetent and idiotic phone agents, to passengers being dragged off of the aircraft, to $hit service in First Class, the list goes on and on… United Polaris, the new Business Class service, isn’t any better and never will be, like promised. I… Read More

Flying SWISS First with Passengers My Age

I love SWISS. I love Zurich. And I love Switzerland. I’ve been finding myself flying with SWISS International Air Lines more and more during the past year and that’s because I’ve been flying more in Business Class and SWISS’ Business Class is 100x better than Lufthansa’s. In fact, the last time I flew long-haul with Lufthansa was in August of last year.. shocking! I’ve flown… Read More

LOT Polish Airlines operates a number of charter flights from Warsaw to various holiday destinations such as Bali, Bangkok, Cuba, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, etc. with their Boeing 787 Dreamliner featuring Business Class, Premium Economy Class, and Economy Class. Most passengers are booked through Polish travel agencies in Economy Class and therefore often the Premium cabins are empty. YouHaveBeenUpgraded notes there is currently a great fare… Read More

Miles & More Isn’t a Frequent Flyer Programme Anymore

Today is the day. Today, Lufthansa German Airlines has destroyed Miles & More, “Europe’s Leading Frequent Flyer Programme”. Effective today, tickets purchased from Lufthansa, Austrian, SWISS, Brussels Airlines, and Eurowings now earn miles based on the ticket price and not the distance flown/booking class. Miles & More members without status will earn 4 miles per Euro spent on the base fare + carrier-imposed surcharges, while Frequent… Read More
