Feb 15 Update: Hyatt Promo open for registration, United Premium Class Luggage Allowance reduction

A quiet end to what turned out to be a pretty busy week!

News, Tips & Tricks
Alaska Airlines and Icelandair are ending their partnership effective June 1, 2013. Not sure if it has something to do with the buy Saga Club points to get First Class tickets on Alaska between US/Canada and Hawaii for $330 last fall as some people are speculating but overall not huge news for those of us here in Canada.

Lucky from the One Mile at a Time blog lets us know about United reducing the first and business class luggage allowance. Basically the allowance is moving from three bags to two bags (at 70lbs max each) for First and Business domestic flights and Business class for international. First Class international will retain a 3 bag limit. More details
