Hyatt’s 1,000 AA miles per stay, Lyft’s disappointing ‘unlimited’ plan, Istanbul’s’ new airport to open in Q4

Posted on October 16, 2018 by in Travel Deals

– Hyatt is throwing everyone a bone who may complain about the missing free breakfast at Hyatt House – you can now earn 1,000 AAdvantage miles per stay in addition to your regular earnings at Hyatt House and Hyatt Place

Eligible stays under this promotion must have a checkout date between October 15, 2018 and January 31, 2019 (“Promotion Period”). You will receive 1,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles for each eligible stay at Hyatt Place and Hyatt House properties during the Promotion Period.

This sounds quite a bit like the Hilton double dip – doesn’t it?

– Lyft has launched a $299 ‘all-access’ plan that sounds like unlimited Lyft rides but it is just a discount of 30 rides up to $15 each (i.e. a ~30%) discount

Uber targets many riders in select markets with a 40% discount code when demand is low (often every other week for the same accounts) without any commitments.

For now stay away from the Lyft plan.

– it seems like the new Istanbul airport is going to happen late this year after all and Turkish is planning to shift all operations there.
