Here is a further update to the WestJet and Air France KLM
partnership. We have been wanting to write a post about using Flying
Blue miles for WestJet flights however their online booking engine is
not grabbing WestJet flights yet. They have updated their partner page
for WestJet stating that you have to Call in to book Flying Blue Awards
for travel on WestJet. So they are bookable but not online nor do they
list what the redemption amounts are yet although we assume that it will
be 12,500 miles one way for flights within North America as that is what
Flying Blue charges for flights on other North American airlines.
Hawaii may be 15,000 (that’s what it is to redeem on Delta via Flying
Blue) and so on.
When you travel enough and stay in a lot of hotels you get recognized – and it doesn’t matter the
size of the company or their loyalty program. Rewards Canada
contributor Bill W. (see our Collector Series story on Bill) received this nice invite from the Canalta Hotel in Esterhazy Sasktachewan to attend their Christmas party!
We’re going to keep this reminder going in each update until Christmas:
Check out the Give A Mile Flight Hero campaign! The
charity can really use donations of miles to help provide flights to
those who otherwise would be unable to travel to visit terminally ill or
critically sick family and friends. Rewards Canada has pledged to raise
100,000 miles and we are half way there! We are putting the call out to
all of our fans, readers and even new visitors, if you can give please
do so. It can be as little as 1,000 miles! You can find out more and donate here.
