– Kenya Airways has loaded some excellent fares from Johannesburg to Bangkok and Guangzhou in Business Class under $800 Round Trip

The fares come up only on the German OTAs – but from my experience they are very legit.

– the Cathay Pacific Asia Miles credit card now comes with a 50,000 sign bonus

This sounds like a good offer but I have yet to get an approval from the issuing bank Synchrony. I hope you’ll fare better!

American Airlines AAdvantage now limits the number of segments for a flight award to three domestic and four international

For each one-way flight award redeemed for travel within the United States and Canada, a maximum of three segments are permitted. For all other destinations (including Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands), a maximum of four segments are permitted.

– Grubhub is consolidating the food delivery marketplace by buying Eat24

Grubhub is apparently itself a major acquisition candidate targeted by Amazon.

– transfer from Citi ThankYou points to Asia Miles now receive 20% bonus

I still find it hard to find value at Asia Miles.
