News and Notes from Around the Interweb:
- If you even think you might have purchased a ticket from Southwest Airlines at a ticket counter from October 2007 through October 2012, you may be eligible for a cash payout due to a class action settlement over the airline printing full credit card numbers on receipts.
- A bunch of United expiring upgrades being given away
- Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan has really generous stopover rules… not just on one-way tickets on their international partners, but also on domestic awards when flying on Alaska itself.
- United is proactively taking away the ability to search for and book Singapore Airlines award tickets from its website. United is apparently “taking functionality away from your customers-friendly” — and they insist that booking Singapore awards over the phone will incur a telephone booking fee (although I’ve always managed to get that fee waived when booking partner airlines not available on the United website).
You’d have thought that the impending partner award chart pricing armaggeddon would have satisfied United’s bean counters.
