January 31 Update: Air Canada to get rid of plastic stir sticks, Stream Apple Music on AA flights, IHG Rewards Club redemption rates for Regent Hotels


Starting sometime this summer Air Canada will being
replace their plastic stir sticks with bamboo ones. The company is
looking at ways to curtail waste and they state this is “a move that
will save 35 million plastic stir sticks annually – enough if laid
end-to-end to join Halifax and Vancouver.” (Source Air Canada)

Yesterday we brought you some news on American Express’ Centurion Lounges
and earlier in the month we mentioned how several locations were
closing for renovations. The good news is the Miami location is now open
for business again! You can access this lounge with a Canadian issued
Platinum Card or Centurion Card. (Source DoC)

Starting tomorrow if you are flying on American Airlines flights within the U.S. you will be able to stream Apple Music at no extra cost. (Source Apple)
