Lifemiles launches subscription based miles purchases, Singapore Airlines in heaven over financial results, 100,000 AMEX Personal Platinum card offer reappears

– Lifemiles has launched a recurring miles purchase plan that earn up to 112,000 miles

These monthly plans are amazingly popular in South America – especially Brazil. Think of it this way – you are ‘saving’ a monthly spend away for your dream holiday. I feel that make sense for a lot of people looking for a ‘simple holiday redemption’.

– Singapore Airlines is teeming with the good results the have produced in the last 9 months

Singapore Airlines Group (SIA) reported a SG$711.1 million ($531.9 million) net profit for the first nine months of its 2017-2018 fiscal year, up 42.6% over SG$498.7 million over the same period a year ago. SIA cited strong passenger and cargo revenue partially offset by higher fuel expenses for the results.

SIA’s nine-month revenue totaled SG$11.8 billion, up 5.7%, as expenses increased 5.6% to SG$10.9 billion; the group’s operating profit for the period was up 41.6% to SG$842.8 million.

The company said all its major entities—except for regional carrier Silk Air—reported improved operating results, particularly from the parent airline company Singapore Airlines and SIA Cargo.
