Qantas to codeshare with Air New Zealand, 2,500 Hyatt points in an easy promotion, Norwegian drops Oakland, British Airways to pay you back Avios

Posted on June 1, 2018 by in Travel Deals

– bad news for passengers in Australia/ New Zealand the (former) rivals Air New Zealand and Qantas will set up a codeshare agreement (read revenue share)

Airfares and airport taxes are already sky high in the region – something that will only get worse.

– one of Norwegian’s first routes to the US was Stockholm to Oakland and it is now being discontinued (as is Las Vegas to Stockholm)

– pretty amazing – British Airways has decided to settle a class action lawsuit for their high fuel surcharges and is paying YOU (if you have a US account and the passenger had a US address) Avios or cash of you had:

You booked an Avios redemption (100% Avios, not ‘cash and Avios’) between 9th November 2006 and 17th April 2013

You will get:

12,500 Avios for one redemption

20,000 Avios for between two and five redemptions

35,000 Avios for six or more redemptions

– Hyatt is handing out 2,500 bonus points if you have 5 nights (consecutive or not, award bookings or cash) at a Hyatt Regency or Grand Hyatt
