– Wow Air is making good on their 30% Birthday discount on their already super low one-way fares – it’s now just $55 one-way to go to Europe

Search a bit on Google Flights or WOW air’s website to find the deals we saw them for SFO, LAX, MIA and YYZ (Toronto) to various destinations in Europe

– topbonus is making changes to award redemptions and (as far as we can see) has been reducing the miles needed for a redemption

Most changes are to the upper end of the award chart plus the fuel surcharges have been reduced by 40-50%.

topbonus has long been un-competitive for most award redemptions – this won’t change much and teh airline is a candidate for bankruptcy in 2017.

– United Airlines is planning to add 787 service from Los Angeles to Singapore from on October – making it the longest flight to/from the US and putting Singapore Airlines on notice

– the Ugandan government hopes for money from Qatar for a new airline based at Entebbe airport – a Qatar affiliate 737 hub in Eastern Africa would be a boon to the airline

– a look into the inaugural RwandAir service from London to Kigali

Citibank’s loss is American Express’ win for issuing Hilton co-branded credit cards
