– would you expect a Fairfield by Marriott hotel in Kathmandu, Nepal? I would not but there it is with rates under $100 or 15,000 points

– Level – the new IAG low cost airline has started operations with their inaugural flight to Los Angeles

– the rumors have been flying for weeks that Jetsmarter is a fraud – now the company has stopped accepting American Express – is that the beginning of the end?

– Air France is trying its hardest to confuse us with their Business Class seats, If you haven’t heard of BEST and ‘Quick change’ in their 777 and A380, get ready for even more new seat configs in their A350, A330

– Delta has launched a new service from Atlanta to Seoul in ‘direct competition’ (well there is revenue sharing in place anyways) with Koren Air

– there is a new (old) transatlantic discount player XL France Airways has great fares one-way from/to Paris to Los Angeles (HT Flyertalk)

– Lifemiles has a 25% inbound transfer promotion from most programs – I’m sitting on a chunk of Lifemiles that I find surprisingly difficult to redeem, maybe now is the time? (HT DoC)
