– Uber Pitch is coming to Europe – now all European startups get their shot at this wonderful idea
– Qatar has announced plans to fly to Chiang Mai, Thailand from on December 2016 – this will be an extension of the flights to Yangon, Qatar has local traffic rights and will compete with Bangkok Airways for the Yangon – Chiang Mai leg
– British Airways and American Airlines are both offering 50,000 extra miles for First, Business Class and certain Economy Class fare buckets flights over the Atlantic this summer – the full 50,000 miles require just two Round Trips
– Lufthansa is raising the prices for intra-Europe awards but also drops fuel surcharges – I think BA and Flying Blue went through the similar motions before – given the multitude of discount airlines now competing in Europe who bothers with awards just inside Europe?
