News, Tips & Tricks
Those of you in YYC or the Alberta region who were looking forward to flying on British Airways' new 787's in July will have to wait a bit longer as that service has been delayed until August 11th. (Source

The earn IHG Rewards Club points earning rate for stays at InterContinental Hotels & Resorts outside of the America's will be changing on July 1st. The new rate will be 10 points per US$1 spent, which is much better than the current 2,000 per stay. Why is it better? Most InterContinental Hotels will cost you well above $200 per night which means you should be able to earn many more points with this new earning structure.

To the surprise of many people Lufthansa's Miles & More program will be discontuing their buy miles option. A very popular feature of many programs nowadays is to be able to sell miles or points to their members and it tends to be quite profitable for many of them. It could be the opposite for Miles & More hence the removal of this option. Full details

WestJet's first foray into Europe must be doing well as they have extended their summer season run between St. John's and Dublin to October 24th from the previously planned end date of October 5th. (Source
