I liked my experience with Frontier (REVIEW) – very low frills but efficient and clever.

– Chimply and Marriott Rewards now go out with a big number of 45,000 Marriott Rewards you can earn per year

Marriott Rewards® members who register and perform qualifying designated actions through their online social profiles are eligible to earn Marriott Rewards points through #RewardsPoints.
A maximum of 45,000 points per Marriott Rewards account can be earned each calendar year through
Points will be awarded to the member’s account in near real-time after performing a qualifying social action*.
Marriott Rewards members electing to earn miles are not eligible for this promotion

I find that whole linking of social media accounts creepy. But if earning is indeed easy this might be something that can scale.

– Yes – we all want to just make all that taxiing of a plane when arriving stop – but is jumping out a plane really a good idea?

– newest ‘unofficial’ Skyteam member Virgin Atlantic now allows booking of Delta flights online

If you are confused by what costs what in comparison to Delta’s own program – you will not be the only one….

– you can’t say times are bad for airlines if we read this

ANA Holdings reported a net profit of ¥51 billion ($453.9 million) for its 2017 fiscal first quarter, nearly an eightfold increase over the company’s ¥6.6 billion net income for its fiscal 1Q 2016.
