AirBerlin topbonus and Rocketmiles are offering up to 20,000 miles for a hotel stay

I made some example searches for Hanoi that came up with a $300 and 18,000 miles offer right away. The double miles are only for stays booked before December 31st. Still a great offer!

The biggest risk AirBerlin might not make it but Lufthansa will likely allow a 1:1 transfer if they buy the airline.

– OMG Norwegian now wants to start an airline inside Argentina operating domestic flights!

Ethiopian is launching Jakarta service on their 787 (after Singapore), great move!

Air India’s loyalty program is launching a new way to redeem for 5,000/10,000 miles for short haul redemptions from certain Star Alliance hubs

For the life of it – I can’t figure out which redemption actually are allowed and how much they cost.
