Southwest Airlines Is Raising Drink Prices

Read more at: http://feeds.feedblitz.com/~/529909866/0/onemileatatime/

Southwest Airlines has raised the cost of alcoholic drinks onboard their flights as of yesterday, March 1, 2018. The airline hasn’t raised the cost of their drinks since 2009, so this is the first time in almost a decade that the prices are changing. For years the airline advertised a “$5 Happy Hour, Every Hour,” so I guess they’ll have to rethink that slogan.

Per USA Today, going forward Southwest Airlines’ drink pricing will be as follows:

Aeroflot Recovering Costs From Passenger Who Delayed Flight Due To “Petty Hooliganism”

Read more at: http://feeds.feedblitz.com/~/529918654/0/onemileatatime/

I’m not sure how I missed this story initially, but thanks to @AirlineFlyer for Tweeting about it, as it’s quite something. It’s of course frustrating when a passenger causes a disturbance on a flight that leads to a delay. It wastes the time of all the passengers onboard, and also potentially costs the airline thousands of dollars.

Typically airlines don’t seem to go after passengers to recoup damages caused, though perhaps if they did so regularly, it would deter more people from causing situations to occur. In the US we already see airline employees sometimes threaten to kick people off “their plane” and “send them to jail.” Could you imagine if they could add a threat of charging them tens of thousands of dollars? 😉

Well, it looks like that’s exactly what Aeroflot is trying to do for an incident that occurred on February 16, where a passenger is being prosecuted for “petty hooliganism.” Here’s Aeroflot’s press release, which talks about what the passenger did, how they intend to go after him, and about how they’ll be able to blacklist passengers starting later this year (the whole thing is just so good that I’m sharing it in its entirety):

Award Availability Alert: American First Class To London!

Read more at: http://feeds.feedblitz.com/~/529925514/0/onemileatatime/

Earlier today I wrote about how American had plenty of first class award availability on their flights to Hong Kong, out of both Dallas and Los Angeles. Given how stingy American is with award availability nowadays, that was pretty rare. American does have a history of releasing award seats in spurts, where we see them make a bunch of space available at once, and then they don’t release more space for a while.

Well, it looks like American’s plentiful first class award availability isn’t just limited to Hong Kong. As noted by Rufuss in the comments section on the previous post, American also has a good amount of first class award availability to/from London through the end of May. No, this doesn’t cover travel in summer, and it’s not like all eight first class seats are available as awards on each flight, though availability is much better than usual.

For example, here’s what availability is like on the nonstop flight from Los Angeles to London this spring, which is often one of the toughest flights on which to score an award (and many of those dates have two first class award seats available as well):

6 Reasons To Get The Citi ThankYou Premier Card

Read more at: http://feeds.feedblitz.com/~/529987184/0/onemileatatime/

For the past few days the Citi ThankYouÂŽ Premier Card has been offering an increased sign-up bonus. We’ve never seen a bigger bonus on this card, so in this post I wanted to look at six reasons you should consider applying for this card under the current offer:

The Citi ThankYou Premier Card is offering a sign-up bonus of 50,000 ThankYou points after spending $4,000 within three months of account opening. We’ve never seen a bigger publicly available bonus on the card. Last year we saw a similar offer at one point, though more recently we’ve seen sign-up bonuses of 30,000 points, and even no sign-up bonus at all, so this is pretty compelling.

London is a totally diverse and international city, which, if I’m honest is one of the main reasons why I love it so much. Our amazing city is steeped, not only in fascinating history (that’s inspired many a book, tv series and films the world over) but amazing cultures, yummy food and a whole heap … Continue Reading

Great Deal: 35K Sign-Up Bonus On SPG Business Amex

Read more at: http://feeds.feedblitz.com/~/529842406/0/onemileatatime~Great-Deal-K-SignUp-Bonus-On-SPG-Business-Amex/

Here’s a great new offer, especially as the minimum spend requirement is less than it was last time we saw a bonus this big. Through March 28, 2018, the Starwood Preferred GuestÂŽ Business Credit Card from American Express is offering a sign-up bonus of 35,000 Starpoints. Specifically, the card is offering 35,000 Starpoints after spending $7,000 within three months.

The last time we saw an increased sign-up bonus on this card, the minimum spend requirement was $10,000, so this is significantly lower (however, the period over which you have to complete the spend is also shorter). While that’s still a fairly big minimum spend, I highly doubt we’ll see an offer this big on the card with a lower minimum spend requirement. If you want to look at the bonus differently, you’re earning six Starpoints per dollar spent on your first $7,000 (since you’d earn 42,000 Starpoints after spending $7,000).

The card’s $95 annual fee is waived for the first year. This is as big as the sign-up bonus on the SPG Business Amex gets. Starpoints can also be converted into Marriott Rewards points at a 1:3 ratio, meaning that you can also turn 35,000 Starpoints into 105,000 Marriott Rewards points.
