flyDubai’s new Business Class, Emirates new First Class and B787 orders, LATAM to add Tel Aviv, ThankYou points and Ultimate Rewards add partners and 2,500 bonus MR for Alaska purchases

– flyDubai’s new 737MAX are getting the cool JetBlue Mint seat configuration – yeah!

– Emirates has started the Dubai Air show with a bang – showing off their new First Class Suites AND ordering Boeing 787 en mass (instead of the much expected A380 orders)

LATAM is planning to add Tel Aviv as its first Middle East destination – a solid 8,212 mile journey!

– Citi ThankYou points can now be transferred to Avianca Lifemiles ,which is a great program and Chase Ultimate Rewards added Iberia and Aer Lingus (both were accessible before via Executive Club transfers though)

– if you have an American Express Platinum (so do I) you may most likely be targeted for an offer with 2,500 Membership Rewards for spending $250 on Alaska Airlines

Look for it on your account.
