Skywards 50% award sale, Chase to restrict Sapphire cards, China’s airline changing strategy?, Etihad adds another codeshare partner, Melia Hamburg Hafencity opens

Posted on August 28, 2017 by in Hotel Reviews, Travel Deals

Emirates Skywards is running a 50% off redemption sale using Emirates Economy Saver flights

Since Emirates has very high fuel surcharges redemptions only make sense if you find a departure city with very low fuel surcharges such as Hong Kong, Addis Abeba or most Brazilian cities.

– Chase now only allows you to have ONE card from the Sapphire family

This wont be the last change – Chase, American Express and Citibank are hell bound to make sure customers stick to a card and don’t overindulge on bonuses.

– China’s airlines are taking a page out of the playbook of US Airlines and strengthening domestic capacity instead of international – let’s see how long it holds

– Etihad is now implementing the Aerolineas Argentinas codeshare agreement – just one more partner out of Etihad’s massive 30 partner long codeshare partner list

– Germany’s engineering culture has been bogged down by huge delays at Berlin airport or the Hamburg opera – now Hamburg has gotten a new (and great looking) Melia in the Hafencity making teh buildup complete after almost 20 years
