Hello from, well… you guys will find out soon enough. 😉 I’m enroute to Asia to fly Starlux Airlines, which I’m looking forward to. I changed my outbound trip to not route through mainland China, so stay tuned for the full details of this whirlwind review trip.
On the points & travel front, this week the Wuhan coronavirus caused quite some disruptions for travelers, we saw the launch of a new United credit card, a 140K bonus was launched on the IHG Premier Card, South African Airways scheduled the A350 on their New York route, the DOT proposed major restrictions on emotional support animals, and more.
With that out of the way, here’s a recap of this week on the blog:
Of those, I was particularly impressed by All Nippon Airways’ new 777-300ER business class, known as “The Room.” As of now this is only available on a very limited number of routes — currently you can find it to London and New York, and soon it will be available to Frankfurt.
Previously I’ve always said that Qatar Airways Qsuites is the world’s best business class, so how do the two products compare? I figured I’d take an in-depth look at that in this post.
Different hotel loyalty programs have different policies regarding how many points, elite qualifying stays, and elite qualifying nights you can earn if booking multiple rooms.
In other words, if you often travel with family and book two rooms, can you receive elite credits and points for each of the rooms?
Chase and United Airlines have just launched a new business credit card, which has an incredible sign-up bonus and potentially awesome perks. Let’s take a closer look at the UnitedSM Business Card, which joins United Airlines’ suite of cards.
Through April 2, 2020, the United Business Card is offering a limited time bonus of 100,000 MileagePlus bonus miles after spending $10,000 within the first three months of account opening.
That’s a huge bonus, as you’re essentially earning an extra 10 bonus miles per dollar for the first $10,000 spent.
