new United MileagePlus Club card offer, Etihad to end 777-200LR operations, Frontier and Volaris to codeshare

– many United Mileage Plus members are being targeted with a United MileagePlus Club Credit card (it also worked for me) where the annual fee is waived for the first year

Airline Credit Cards

The regular offer for this card comes with 50,000 miles after spending $3,000 (annual fee not waived).
I don’t think the United Clubs are worth much effort unless you are on the road several times a week with United. However the card earns 1.5 miles per $1 spent – if you have a a LOT of spending on non-bonus categories with another card this can be a nice boost!

Airline Credit Cards

– Etihad will end 777-200LR operations in Q1 2018

Those birds are old and I really did not like the Business Class product – it can only get better!

– Frontier and Volaris will now CODESHARE

Most low cost airlines lamented on this ‘old school’ practice that makes flying more expensive and now the two airlines (both are Indigo Partners investments) have turned the world on its head – let’s see how it works out!
