News and notes from around the interweb:
- Hotel industry podcast discusses resort fees and is surprisingly negative on the practice, worth a list to the ‘No Show’ podcast.
- 100 free miles for joining Japan Airlines Mileage Bank
- Oh please. Canadians can’t decide whether Air Canada is a commercial enterprise or a public utility. Then again, they’re subsidizing it, and stupidity follows.
- JetBlue and Qatar introduce reciprocal mileage earning most US consumers would prefer to credit miles from both airlines to American AAdvantage, but Qatar’s program is a Citi transfer partner and this is edge case useful to some.
- The Wall Street Journal covers American’s shift away from flying for earning elite status, if you don’t subscribe you can find the article here.
- An active shooter incident at your hotel is worth 75,000 Hyatt points. (HT: @jayhawknj)
As you may know, I was at the Hyatt Ziva Riviera Cancun when several active shooters landed on the resort’s beach. Two of the shooters were killed, as hundreds of us scrambled to hide, terrified for our lives. I’ve been asked, “Has Hyatt done anything?”. I just got this letter. pic.twitter.com/doHS6O2NGs
