Chase launches 100,000 Marriott Premier Plus, Southwest’ new Hawaii routes announced, mystery prevails about what caused the ‘almost crash’ at SFO last year

Posted on May 3, 2018 by in Travel Deals

– Chase is out with the Marriott Premier Plus that comes with 100,000 bonus points

The product is not available to either (i) current cardmembers of the Marriott Rewards Premier or Marriott Rewards Premier Plus credit card, or (ii) previous cardmembers of the Marriott Rewards Premier or Marriott Rewards Premier Plus credit card who received a new cardmember bonus within the last 24 months.

The (old) Marriott Premier card was a victim of 5/24 (at least the Personal version). No clear indication on this new card yet.

– Southwest has decided about the first set of airports for their Hawaii service – San Jose, CA, Oakland, CA, Sacramento, CA and San Diego, CA

Can’t wait until the US’ friendliest airline sets sails for Hawaii finally!

– the NTSB is still not sure what exactly cause the Air Canada pilot to be so far off course when he almost ran into four lined up (and fueled up) other planes last year
