Towards the beginning of June American Airlines launched a mileage sale which was supposed to run through to the end of the month but, for reasons best known to the airline, the sale has been extended through to 2 August.
In February of this year, Singapore Airlines announced a series of changes to its KrisFlyer loyalty program and, as is usual nowadays, most of the changes were not good news for flyers. Amongst the changes announced was a mention that the airline would be making changes to how its waitlists work.
When it comes to general program rules and knowing how and when to use various loyalty currencies I'm more than comfortable left to my own devices but, every now and again I encounter something that makes me stop, think and wonder if what I'm looking at is a glitch, an oddity or a program's feature that I didn't know about.
United's Mileage Plus program has been having a lot of issues with partner awards this year. Back in January, quite a few people noticed that United.com wasn't showing award availability for a number of its Star Alliance partners despite the fact that other sites (like Aeroplan) were showing that lots of awards seats were up for grabs.
Historically, the upgrades that British Airways issues to flyers who earn a minimum of 2,500 Tier Points have, on the whole, only been usable if the airline was offering award availability in the cabin passengers were trying to upgrade into. For most people it has been a time of 'no award availability, no upgrade'.....but that just changed.
