We here at Rewards Canada are super excited about this little news tidbit - Air Canada mainline is coming back to YYC-LAX (and YVR-SFO/LAX) marking the end of Air Canada Rouge service on the routes as of May next year. We fly to California quite often and it will be nice to have regular AC aircraft back on the route. (Source

American Airlines has announced new service between Los Angeles and Auckland New Zealand. You may be wondering why we are posting this on a Canadian site? The main reason why is that American Airlines is an AIR MILES preferred airline partner for redemptions and this comes on the heels of one of our readers sending us a complaint that they have saved up enough miles to fly to New Zealand but can't fathom the huge fees required on top of the miles to fly on Air New Zealand (also an AIR MILES partner). Well now that AA will fly to NZ this opens up the option to use those AIR MILES on these flights with a lot less fees as AA doesn't charge exorbitant carrier surcharges (nee Fuel Surcharges) HT View from the Wing

News started breaking a few weeks ago that Design Hotels was to become part of Starwood. There has been a soft launch of 5 properties into the Starwood Preferrred Guest program. Prior to this your only earning option with Design Hotels was with Lufthansa's Miles & More. (Source SPG)
