2x Starpoints on everything, 5,000 easy HHonors points, airberlin serious about restructuring & retro miles credit tool from Skyteam

– American Express is sending out even more targeted offers for 5,000 extra Starpoints on $5,000 spend – that brings this card well into Chase Sapphire category (if not better since it has more transfer partners and a bonus)

– don’t be surprised if you also have been targeted for an extra 5,000 bonus points with Hilton HHonors for two stays – not worth chasing per se and worth registering (I was targeted though I don’t have the American Express Hilton card anymore)

– Air Berlin is serious about restructuring – the Lufthansa deal seems to be still alive and now the remaining planes are going to TUI potentially – we wonder what will be left of Air Berlin and will it stay in oneworld after Etihad is done?

– Skyteam is working on a retroactive miles credit tool for the whole alliance – I’m sure Delta and Air France will make it work but China Eastern and China Southern too? That would be awesome!
