AMEX Platinum adds Saks credit (enrollment required), Tripsta in the doldrums?, United drops Los Angeles to Singapore service

Posted on July 1, 2018 by in Travel Deals

– American Express opened up that rather odd double $50 statement credit for Saks purchases early – you can enroll your card now (HT MtM)

– Tripsta which has been aggressive in discounting tickets through Momondo has suspended operations amid a spat with the Travelport GDS

Existing tickets should be fine but watch this space.

– United is cancelling the, still rather, new Los Angeles to Singapore service and moves the plane to the San Francisco to Singapore route as a second daily

Singapore Airlines is supposed to start direct service to Los Angeles soon (on a A350) and already has one. United simply does not have a lot of feed (i.e. connecting passengers) in Los Angeles. Their San Francisco hub is working wonders for Trans Pacific flights.
