British Airways Club World

UPDATE #1: We are adding new cities as we find them — there are now fares starting from $1795! UPDATE #2: Oneworld pricing appears to either be dead or extremely limited from Atlanta, but still alive on many dates from Pittsburgh. SkyTeam availability still appears to be very strong as of 2:30pm Eastern time. This fare sale is not likely to last, so we recommend booking if you find dates that work for you. We…

Great airfares both domestic and international, many cities

I'm no mountain climbing expert, but I suggest taking a couple of days to get used to the elevation before trying to climb even higher.

There are a number of notable airfare deals today, both domestic and international between a number of city pairs.

united-iad-to-gso

Last month, on a Tuesday I decided to visit my dad for his birthday. His birthday was that Thursday. And, while I live in southeast Michigan, he lives near Greensboro North Carolina: about 500 miles away.  Thanks to airline miles, the last minute trip was both possible and cheap. Finding Flights Via Google Flights I checked flight prices. Most flights were well over $600. Too high.  I would use airline miles instead. I noted flight…

Bet You Didn’t Know: American Airlines Still Offers Free 24 Hour Holds

Theoretically you…

Citi teases with 16 month old “New Points Transfer Partner”

New Points Transfer Partner

A reader today asked whether there was any news about Citi allowing point transfers to AA.  He said that when looking at his Prestige account online, he found an American Airlines transaction flagged as a “New Points Transfer Partner”. I was excited for moment.  AA point transfers would be a great new option for Citi ThankYou points.  And, it seems reasonable that Citi would add American Airlines as a transfer partner.  They do already partner…
