Airline News Roundup…

Are people really this stupid?
“A man nearly died from alcohol poisoning after quaffing a liter of vodka at an airport security check instead of handing it over…”

“Father, son cited for hunting at Pittsburgh airport…”

“Airlines don’t want to fill empty gates at Pittsburgh airport” 

Be happy that United doesn’t serve meals on domestic flights anymore… 

Lufthansa bought a 19% stake in Jetblue…is a Star Alliance invitation far behind?

You have to pay a large tax when flying to the UK for carbon-offsetting; British Airways flies empty planes from London/Heathrow to North America just to retain its grip on 41% of the highly-coveted LHR slots. An airline must use 80% of their slots to retain them.

JAL Mileage Bank, Your New Destination For Starpoints?

This is the first of a series of articles on some of the more obscure airlines that are transfer partners with Starwood. Special thanks to S.B.S. for his exhaustive research on this topic!

Starwood Starpoints transfer to JAL Mileage Bank at a 1:1 or 20,000:25,000 ratio.

The JAL program is one of the most complicated mileage programs that I have ever seen.

JAL Redemption Options Linky

You can get dizzy just trying to figure out what they’re talking about.

The complicating factor is that they have 2 kinds of awards.

1. Distance based: This is where the required miles is based on the actual distance of the flight.

2. Zone based: This is where the required miles is based on the countries of origin and destination.

To make things worse, in each type of awards there are some partners that are zone-based, and some that are distance based.

Here’s my own shot at simplification of the JAL program:

There are 5 distinct types of mileage awards.

1. Domestic JAL Group (Includes 6 Japanese Airlines) Tickets.

2. International JAL Group (Includes 3 Japanese Airlines) Tickets.

3. JAL+Partner Tickets: Valid for Travel on JAL and AA for a zone based award. Valid for travel on JAL and Finnair, Iberia, Malev Hungarian Airlines, Qantas Airways and Royal Jordanian Airlines for a distance based award.

4. Partner Airlines Tickets: The required mileage differs for each of the following airlines! Valid for travel on any one (and only one) of the following airlines: AA, British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Dragonair, Finnair, Iberia, LAN, Malév Hungarian Airlines, Qantas Airways, Royal Jordanian Airlines, Air France, Emirates.

5. One-World Tickets: Valid for travel on at least two different (excluding JAL) OneWorld carriers.

I don’t have the time to sift through every nook and cranny of the program to find gems, but this little nugget stands out:

The Partner Airlines (category 4) award for British Airways is zone-based. It considers Israel to be part of Europe!

The JAL miles cost of a British Airways ticket from anywhere in North or Central America to Israel is as follows:

Coach between 10/15 and 05/15 (a.k.a. World Traveler Class): 40,000

Coach between 5/16 and 10/14 (a.k.a. World Traveler Class): 60,000

Premium Coach (a.k.a. World Traveler Plus Class): 75,000

Business (a.k.a. Club World Class): 80,000

First: 100,000

Bear in mind that for every 20,000 Starpoints you will get 25,000 JAL miles, so the actual cost for an off-peak coach award to Israel is less than 35,000 Starpoints!

Feel free to comb through the rest of JAL program and let me know about any more gems that you may find!

Amtrak: “All Cancelled Choice Points Will Be Reverted Back Into Amtrak Points.”

Article Linky

HT: S.B.S.

If you were among those affected by disappearing Choice points (I told you to move them to Southwest asap for a reason!) you can rest assurred they have not disappeared into thin air.

According to Amtrak they will simply be reverted back into Amtrak points.

From that point you can redeem them for any Amtrak rewards, or transfer them to a program like Continental’s OnePass.

Additionally you will be able to transfer Amtrak points into Choice points at a 1:3 ration between 12/14/07 and 12/31/07.

Beware: Starting on 01/01/08 you will need to be elite on Amtrak or have the no annual fee Chase Amtrak World Mastercard in order to make any point transfers from the Amtrak program!

USAirways Jumps The Shark; Charges Booking Fee For USAirways.com Tickets!!!

This is just too much!

It was not a long time ago that airlines would file exclusive fares and offer lots of bonus miles for booking directly from their own website.

Now USeless Airways is charging a $5-$6 booking fee for booking on their half-baked website.

Don’t believe me?

Priceline and Hotwire do not charge any booking fee for regular tickets. Go ahead and price out a USAirways itinerary on those websites and it will be $5-$6 cheaper than on USAirways.com

The worst part about it?

They don’t even label it as a booking fee, it’s disingenuously labeled under taxes and fees.

Two thumbs way down!

WARNING: MOVE YOUR CHOICE POINTS NOW!!!

If you transferred points from Amtrak to Choice you should move them into another program asap!

There are numerous reports of Choice zeroing out people’s balances.

There are many rumors as to why they are doing this, the most popular being that Amtrak didn’t pay for the transfers!

Regardless, there is really no leg for Choice to stand on here, the transfers were all 100% legitimate and within the boundaries and good faith of their loyalty program. The can’t legally zero out people’s balances!

This has got to be a new low for loyalty programs.

Here are some email addresses for Choice executives, if you’ve been affected then let ‘em have it!!!

david_goldberg@choicehotels.com
bruce_haase@choicehotels.com
charles_ledsinger@choicehotels.com
bill_carlson@choicehotels.com

What’s the status of your transfer? Did you make it all the way to Southwest? Are your Choice points still intact or have they been zeroed out? Post a comment! 

Stay tuned for more information…
