$1,172 Business Class Round Trip to Easter Island, American Express gets serious about ‘churning’, Cabin launches sleeper bus service between SF and L.A., American award space between L.A. and London and Aer Lingus short haul woes

Posted on July 27, 2017 by in Travel Deals

– LATAM / Skyteam have return Business Class flights to Easter Island for $1,172 Round Trip from Mexico City right now. That’s a great deal if you can get yourself to Mexico City for a low price.

This Flyertalk thread also shows how to make this deal work for $1,899 from Amsterdam.

– American Express is changing the legal disclaimers on many sign-up offers to discourage ‘churning’

United is starting non-stop flights from Denver to London after Norwegian just added Denver to their long-haul network

Cabin is a new sleeper bus concept between L.A. and San Francisco that gets you in a gorgeous looking sleep cell between the cities overnight

I’d love to see similar sleep cells on aircraft though, not just buses!

There are a few problems with Cabin as this analysis points out.

I feel it is simply too expensive as the competition on the route has kept fares rather low at $49.

– a rare sight – plenty of award space between Los Angeles and London with American Airlines service

– South African subsidiary Air link has won the contract to fly to St. Helena

– is Aer Lingus ready to dispose of their short haul network?

I’d say why not? Get a feeder agreement with Ryanair and make money on long-haul traffic.
