– a Swiss 777 landed at Iqaluit Airport earlier this week as one engine shut down during flight – the plane is still at the airport while a new engine is being flown in with a huge Antonov cargo plane

Southwest has a white label hotel booking engine in cooperation with booking.com that lets you earn 1 RapidRewards point per dollar spend

This is great since it is impossible to get any cashback to track with booking.com

– Wowair has been quietly introducing fees for carry-on bags – the language on the website does not state when the changes will be effective and if they account for tickets purchased already

If they are indeed pursuing a paid carry-on policy this can double the price for one of the $69 one-ways to Europe we highlighted – this would be a shame and they should process a refund for you should you decide to cancel.

Delta has a new promotion that might allow you to earn 25,000 Bonus Skymiles – 1,000 per Skymiles partner

This all sounds much like the fabled US Airways ‘Grand Slam’. The promotion seems targeted and it is not entirely clear what Delta actually means by 1,000 miles per partner – up to 25,000 miles.

The way to sign up is to replace the 99999999 in the following link with your Skymiles number – it will show that you are registered (it worked for me).


Lot’s of if’s in this promotion but potentially worthwile. Register and and I’ll keep you updated if it actually works.
