American cancels codeshare with Qatar and Etihad, United’s new overbooking protection, Etihad bullish on Nigeria and Egypt, Omni the perfect storage solution for frequent travelers, Radisson N’Djamena opens

Posted on July 13, 2017 by in Frequent Flyer Programs

American Airlines is ending codeshares with Qatar and Etihad – a largely symbolical move so far but redeeming AAdvantage miles with Etihad may soon come to an end

It’s too early to say if politics now are playing a bigger role than business for American. The Etihad codeshare was always rumored to end soon and Qatar may have just overplayed their hand by calling out American Airlines (the worlds biggest airline) constantly.

– United Airlines has now implemented a system that contacts passengers booked on a potentially oversold flight to make changes before they even get to the airport – apparently $250 vouchers are up for grabs if you are flexible

That bumping story back in April must have really scared management.

EgyptAir and Royal Air Maroc have also been let off the laptop ban after implementing the new security measures that run electronics through an explosives testing

Nigeria’s recession seems to be easing and the Qatar ban is helping Etihad fill more planes

Omni is a smart service that stores your items for a flat monthly fee, all sorted, catalogues and perfectly preserved (HT TPG)

– the Radisson N’Djamena, Chad is now open – providing a great base if you make it out to the Chad

I found most Radisson’s in Africa to be excellent hotels like in Dakar, Addis Abeba and Nairobi (with the exception of the Radisson Libreville)
