WOW $77b in fresh airplane orders, new Chase Offers, $1,000 for a successful Best Price Guarantee

– the Dubai Air Show samplifies the boom times in the airline industry – Indigo partners (WizzAir, Frontier, Volaris) just signed the biggest aircraft order ever for $50b – all narrow-body aircraft from Airbus

– flyDubai is now realizing the growth Emirates used to see and gives a massive $27B narrow-body aircraft from Boeing over the next few years

Airline Credit Cards

– Chase is getting into the coupon / offers game and you can sign up with a Slate card or Marriott card (both Business and Personal)

So far the offers are bit underwhelming with the Whole Foods offer being the most interesting.

Airline Credit Cards

– STA Travel has a pretty amazing Best Price Guarantee that promises up to $1,000 if you find a better price for a flight or vacation package from the US

How It Works
1. Price Beat Guarantee applies to accommodations, all scheduled airlines** and the following operators – Eurail, Contiki Holidays, G Adventures, Busabout, Haggis, Shamrocker, Real Aussie Adventures, Awesome Adventures, Kiwi Experience, Bamba Bus, Vodkatrain and Sundowners.

2. We will beat prices that are available to the general public from a USA registered retail travel agent, online travel agent or travel agent call center (and displayed in USD$) only. All flights must be departing the USA.

3. If you find a cheaper price, you must obtain a printed confirmation of the competitor quote on headed paper (this must include the airline booking reference) or print out/screenshot of the webpage at the final payment stage. This must be complete with a clear airfare/tour description, travel dates, number of passengers, price including all fees and charges (airfare and taxes must be clearly displayed), confirmed availability, booking conditions and date of quote clearly shown.
