– Hawaii has seen a pretty impressive drop in fares lately – sales never touched under $399 Round Trip – but Alaska and United now have plenty of dates in the coming weeks for under $325 Round Trip

– Norwegian seems to get their burgeoning growth under control and they seem to make the long-haul low-cost model work for good

LCC Norwegian has reported a 2017 third-quarter net profit of just over NOK1 billion ($122 million, up 4% year-over-year (YOY), on strong international passenger growth and increasingly high load factors.

The LCC achieved the result on revenues that jumped 21% YOY, to fractionally over NOK10 billion, compared to NOK8.3 billion a year ago.

Passenger numbers were up 14% YOY at 9.8 million, with figures from Spain and the US showing particularly large improvements. The US figures, up 79% on a year ago, were the result of the increasingly large number of transatlantic routes the carrier has instituted in recent months.

– World of Hyatt is offering 2,000 bonus points per stay at newly opened Hyatt House Dusseldorf/Andreas Quarter

The offer is valid for stays stay from November 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018 booked on hyatt.com.

– the American Express Centurion Lounge in Philadelphia is scheduled to open in October, I walked by yesterday and it looks pretty much done – let’s hope that the opening date will hold
