American Express offers a 25% transfer bonus to Hawaiian Airlines (I find the Economy redemptions from Honolulu to Tahiti the best value on Hawaiian)

– Etihad is ending talks with TUI to create a leisure airline – please Etihad cut the losses from the failed expansion in Europe, get a comprehensive agreement with Lufthansa finally and make Etihad the best airline in the Middle East and beyond

– only in Africa – South African and the Zimbabwean Ministry are fighting over $900,000 in ‘Meteorological fees”

– SilkAir may follow the Singapore Airlines parent organization to Australia with a new service to Karratha
