News and notes from around the interweb:
- A few weeks ago I summed up the best mileage earning offers for flowers. United and American both have 30 miles per dollar offers with FTD plus 200 or 250 additional fixed miles. There’s also now a 35 Delta mile per dollar offer with FTD.
- Here’s where Southwest plans to fly non-stop from Dallas Love Field once the abominable Wright amendment limiting flights at that airport finally goes away.
- American has two stackable bonuses for purchasing miles that — through February 6 only — allow you to buy miles at 2 cents apiece. Of course US Airways and American are merging, and US Airways is currently selling miles for even less (and does so regularly).
- In another reminder that new management at American (i.e. old management at US Airways) don’t like competing, they’re eliminating American’s Los Angeles – Newark flight. United pretty well has that route cornered with 12 flights a day, American’s 1 won’t really be missed. Plus they’ve got spiffy new planes flying to an airport that’s actually in New York, so who needed Newark anyway?
