October 18 Update: Hertz becomes Skyteam’s first non-airline partner, American Airlines raising Admirals Club fees and more!

Hertz has become the first ever non-airline
partner of an airline alliance. On October 16th it was announced that
Hertz has partnered with SkyTeam. (Source Hertz)

SkyTeam is the first airline alliance to offer its Frequent Flyers
access to car hire benefits plus the opportunity to earn miles when
renting a vehicle.  Passengers participating in the Frequent Flyer
programs of SkyTeam member airlines will receive a special code for
their Hertz car rental bookings. Hertz covers SkyTeam’s global network
of 1,072 destinations with more than 10,000 rental locations around the
world.  Car hire reservations can be made online, by phone or through
the Hertz app.  

Lots of coverage lately of business class lounges and one area we cover in our Guide to Business Class lounge access is annual memberships offered by individual airlines. One of those is American Airlines and their Admirals Club
memberships and as of Feb 1, 2019 the cost for those are going up by
US$100 for individual memberships and family memberships will cost
US$325 to US$475 more per year. You can also use AAdvantage miles to
purchase these annual memberships and those prices are actually going
down (Source One Mile at a Time)
