Lets start the week with a few promos:
It is common knowledge that the hotel promos over the last several years are just not what they used to be. And elite level requirements have gone way up, I mean, isn’t the top Hyatt elite level at 55 or 60 nights now? WTF! Interesting read: Lack of Promotions: Are Hotel Loyalty Programs Still Worth It For The Average Customer.
Emirates unveiled its new First Class suites. Yes, it looks great. Yes, expect to see numerous blog posts you can fly it for “free” only if you click on their affiliate link credit card merchandise.

I am coming back to the US next week. Got another 70k UA award flying out of Thessaloniki Greece on Aegean to Frankfurt and then on Lufthansa to Detroit. Same route again. In Business class. I burned 8,000 points for a night at the Thessaloniki Hyatt and then 7,000 SPG points for an overnight at the Sheraton inside the FRA airport before my flight to Detroit. I am at about 760k burn for the year so far, not bad.
For the record, Citi added Avianca Lifemiles as a transfer partner in its Thank You program. Positive move I guess.
And I leave you with this…Winter is coming you guys lol.
