Delta’s buying spree, Etihad conquers Lufthansa, 50k Lufthansa card, topBonus 1,500 miles redemptions, Remitly $40 promo & 35% Bonus Avios
– BarclayCard is still has the 50,000 Miles & More credit card until early October – while these offers come and go it is the best offer for this card
– Air Berlin has launched another round of super low mileage topBonus award tickets – they are as low as 1,500 miles – the only trouble is that the program charges huge fees when redeeming on Air Berlin coded flights (unlike American Advantage or British Airways Executive Club)
– Lufthansa, Air Berlin and Etihad are working on a major deal that would bring 40 Air Berlin loss making planes as a wet lease into the Eurowings arm of Lufthansa – once done the codeshare with arch rival Etihad will be set up so it can continue to feed Etihad flights – never saw that coming!
– British Airways Executive Club is running another 35% bonus promotion when buying Avios
