This translates into 8,000 bonus points per night – this is excellent value f you travel in Indonesia or China (which have cheap and decent Holiday Inn Express hotels).

Curious what you got – see for yourself (Direct Link).

– the St Helena airport is now seeking more airlines to fly to the airport since Comair has ‘halted their plans temporarily’

Alaska Airlines now lets you redeem on Japan Airlines – this is great news since there are no fuel surcharges

Immediately you will realize the generous award chart for Business and First (!) Class to South East Asia. Only Jakarta has a First Class cabin in South East Asia.
