December 13 Update: Delta adds 2nd Vancouver-JFK flight, Cathay Pacific Asia Miles will no longer expire, IHG introduces IHG Studio



Not only has Air Canada added a second daily flight between Vancouver and New York, Delta Airlines has also decided to increase their summer service between the two cities. As of April 2, 2020 the SkyTeam airline will offer a second flight 5 times per week between Vancouver and JFK and bumping it up to daily service as of June 16. (Source RoutesOnline)

Congratulations to Debbie W. who was selected as the winner in our 10,000 Aeroplan Miles contest that was run to celebrate Aeroplan's Black Friday Cyber Monday deals!


Cathay Pacific announced earlier this month that they are doing away with expiring miles! The program, like most based in Asia have a three year expiry rule on their miles regardless of account activity. That means you only had three years to use up miles from the month they were earned in. All new miles earned as of January 1st will not expire after three years as long as you have activity in your account every 18 months. This is similar to most North American loyalty programs (see our feature on expiry and inactivity rules here) Of course the key note here is new miles earned as January 1 - this means all miles in your Asia Miles account right now or that are earned until the end of this year will still expire after three years.

IHG Hotels let us know about a new entertainment solution they have launched. Called IHG Studio, it is an in-room digital experience that allows guests to stream TV, make service requests and more.
IHG Studio allows guests to:
  • Connect and stream content securely from guests’ personal devices to their guest room TV
  • Make service requests such as order extra pillows, arrange for a late checkout and review room charges
  • Access the TV remote from the IHG Rewards Club mobile app
  • Order room service and purchase on-property amenities
  • Pay with Points, a new pilot program that allows guests to use IHG Rewards Club points to make in-hotel purchases 

IHG Studio is currently available in nearly 40 hotels in the U.S. and will expand to other regions by the end of 2019, including the U.K., Greater China, Canada and Latin America. The system will become a standard across all brands globally over the coming years.
Accessing the TV remote from the app is cool as we all know the TV remote is one of the dirtiest items in a hotel room!


Today's Aeroplan eStore deal for the 12 days of gifting is 10x the miles for online purchases with Dyson. Find out more here.
