Miles & More to add family accounts, Betterment 30,000 AA miles, Qatar with big losses and new destinations

Posted on March 7, 2018 by in Destinations & Inspiration

– Miles & More is soon adding the option to pool miles between two adults and up to five children

This option is modeled after the Household account that BA Executive Club offers. No word yet on how that will work specifically.

– Betterment is offering up to 30,000 AAdvantage miles when you sign up and invest at least $100,000 (less miles are available for smaller investments) (HT FrequentMiler)

This is a big ask for a company few of us ever heard of.

– it is good news/ bad news time for Qatar at the ITB

Qatar will likely end up posting a 500+ million losses for 2017 despite all their account tricks they run.

There is still no set date for flights from new US destinations San Francisco and Las Vegas that have been announced last year. Confusingly though Qatar has propped up AirItaly with 30 787 planes.

The good news is the QSuite roll-out is finally on track with more US and European destinations being added.

There are a number of A320 destinations (Qatar has a lot of idle short-haul planes) like
Thessaloniki, Cardiff, London Gatwick, Malaga, Bodrum and Antalya.

There are plenty more ‘wanna-be destinations’ that are hopefully be launched with long haul planes in Asia and Europe.
