Posted on July 6, 2017 by in Travel Industry Flight Status

– Turkish Airlines offers tickets from Manila to almost anywhere in the world for under/ around $2,000 in Business Class now

The booking class J earns 100%-200% in various Star Alliance programs.

In order to get the most miles consider Manila – Los Angeles for 2,026 Round Trip (almost 25,000 miles flown) or Manila – Cape Town for $1,788 Round Trip. Both trips are well under 10 CPM.

– Emirates is relaunching their Wifi service with unlimited Internet for Business and First Class passengers and a free 20MB (enough for most chat apps)

– Qatar now also got out of the laptop ban

– Etihad now provides (paid) chauffeur service through conxxe

Their website promptly went down.

ThankYou points can now be transferred on 1:2 ratio to Hilton – that’s much better than then usual 1:1.5 rate. This may come handy for some high rate/ low category hotels during summer.
