UAE bans ‘sympathy’, last A380 purchase ever?, IHG 50% bonus when buying points, Alaska Airlines double miles on partners

Posted on June 7, 2017 by in IHG Rewards Club

– 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?
