Hilton Gold Through 2020, Woman Gives Birth on Plane, and American Eliminates Discount Codes (Bits ‘n Pieces for May 4, 2014)

News and notes from around the interweb:


  • American has long offered group discount codes, and if you could find an applicable one online it would be good for 5% – 10% off of a ticket. There used to be good compilations of these codes online but American’s lawyers threatened several sites and they’ve been harder to find over the past year. Now those codes are being eliminated altogether. As of May 1 they’re not offering new group discount codes, although existing ones remain valid through their planned expiration. (HT: Reid)
