February 22 Update: Flair Airlines ending some U.S. routes early, IHG Rewards Club to test variable award pricing, Up to 30% off Jet Airways flights from Toronto

 

Flair Airlines is cutting service to Miami and St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport (near Tampa Bay) in Florida, and Palm Springs, California earlier than planned. The airline will contact you if you are booked on any of these flights. (Source Global News)

 


IHG Rewards Club is going to be testing out dynamic or variable award pricing for their free hotel award nights. Now common place among many loyalty programs, we here in Canada are most accustomed to Aeroplan's Market Fare Rewards where the amount of miles you need will depend on the price of the flight. However we don't know what they mean exactly by variable pricing. Will it be tied to price or will it be fixed variable like Marriott Bonvoy with Peak, Standard and Off-Peak pricing. We also don't know is how big this test will be as in if it will be across the board or only at select hotels. (Source IHG) HT Head for Points

Here's the excerpt from IHG's Preliminary 2018 results that mentions this:
  • Strengthen loyalty programme – Continuing to innovate IHG Rewards Club to build stronger and deeper relationships with our guests to drive high value revenue across our hotel estate
    • Loyalty room revenue contribution up 4%pts in 4 years to 43%, including ~50% in the Americas.
    • Loyalty members 7x more likely to book direct, and deliver a 25% stay premium.
    • Testing new features for 2019 roll-out, designed to increase member engagement with variable point pricing.
And speaking of IHG Rewards Club, we will see the new list of PointBreaks offers on Monday! Watch closely here on the Rewards Canada blog for those details!
