– Most (if not all) Marriott Rewards members with a US address should have received an email yesterday with a 100,000 Marriott Rewards Bonus points credit card
It contains this link (the link does not mention the 100,000 offer though).
The personal Marriott Rewards card is subject to 5/24 and you won’t receive a new bonus if you had the card in the last 24 months.
– there are rumors of a new Uber credit card likely issued by Capital One with a $50 sign-up bonus
– The UK has added their own electronics ban following the ban issued by the Trump administration
– this article speculates that the electronics ban was extended to the UAE and Qatar because of the unfair competition claimed by US airlines against their Middle Eastern competitors
I can’t see a scenario where the UAE and Qatar airport authorities would be unable or unwilling to invest in security equipment. Etihad even pays for a US pr-clearance facility in Abu Dhabi. The electronics ban does indeed inconvenience travelers from those airports but there is a surprisingly easy remedy – make all flights to the US red-eyes.
Etihad and Qatar Airways already schedule most US flights in the late hours. I can’t remember using my laptop at any of those Etihad Business Class red-eye flights.
