I’m back in Los Angeles after a week in France/Switzerland/Germany. My trip was exhausting so it will be great to stay in LA this week.
The big news of for the week, at least in my mind, was the death of the Star Alliance mileage run. Since you can no longer earn one mile for every mile flown with Singapore KrisFlyer, I outline the best program to credit cheap United Airlines flights.
As a frequent United flyer, United Airlines is a strong focus on Live and Let’s Fly. This week’s United stories included Guam cutbacks, behind the scenes with the new safety video and CEO reflections on the Las Vegas tragedy.
Here’s a review of the week’s top stories:
Does ANA have any ethical obligation when it subs a brand new business class product for a dated one?
Take advantage of this cheap Singapore Airlines redemption before the devaluation next month…you might even score a seat on an A350-900 in business!
My flight on a 30-year old Dutch aircraft, including extremely generous legroom throughout the plane.
Does Emirates really need more A380s?
