Good news: British Airways reduces surcharges on Iberia bookings

For quite a few years, there have been a number of reasons why it has been a good idea for flyers to have an Iberia Plus account as well as a British Airways account despite the fact that BA and Iberia are sister airlines and share the same rewards currency. Quietly and without any apparent notice being given, British Airways appears to have removed one of those reasons.

KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes for July 2022 are live (don’t get your hopes up!)

Singapore Airlines has now published its Spontaneous Escapes deals for travel in July and while the airline is still offering an attractive 30% discount on awards booked on select routes, the number of routes offering discounted Business Class awards and/or discounted Premium Economy awards has dropped dramatically since Spontaneous Escapes first came back (in full) back in March.

For those of us with mid-tier or higher airline elite status, however, choosing a low-cost carrier over the airline with which we hold elite status can often be a poor decision. This is why.

Chase & British Airways improve the Travel Together companion voucher

Earlier today, I wrote about British Airways improving the Companion Voucher issued by UK-issued American Express cards and while that news probably wasn't particularly interesting to US-based readers, the follow-up news that Chase and British Airways have improved the Travel Together benefit that comes with the British Airways Visa Signature® card will probably attract more attention.

American Airlines & JetBlue add more reciprocal elite benefits

Today, American Airlines and JetBlue have taken another step towards cementing their alliance (despite the fact that the DoJ is actively trying to break the alliance up) by announcing further reciprocal status benefits for their elite flyers and by confirming that customers flying with JetBlue will finally be allowed to use their Admirals Club memberships to access American's lounges.
