UAE bans ‘sympathy’, last A380 purchase ever?, IHG 50% bonus when buying points, Alaska Airlines double miles on partners
– the UAE now bans any ‘sympathy for Qatar’ in public (that includes your Tweets!) – what a ‘lovely’ unenforceable law – though someone will certainly throw a tourist in jail for a few days to make a point
Have the governments now gone completely ‘loco’ in Saudi and the UAE?
– will this be the last A380 purchase ever?
– IHG and points.com offer up to 50% when buying IHG points
