January 7 Update: Turkish Miles&Smiles extends mileage validity, Aer Lingus introducing intra-Europe lie flat business class & more!

Rewards Canada contributor Martin L. passed along this note from Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles.
On December 31st, any miles that were three years old were set to
expire (the program has a three year life span on miles) however due to
some technical issues with their booking processes Turkish has extended
the expiry date to January 15. So if you happen to have some older
Miles&Smiles Miles check their website to see if there is anything
you can redeem for rather than losing the miles!

Aer Lingus, which flies to Toronto and soon to
Montreal will be adding lie flat business class seats to some of their
European routes late in 2019. They will be utilizing some of their new
A321LR aircraft that have the lie flat seats from Dublin to cities like
London, Paris and Barcelona. This is a definite perk if you are flying
Aer Lingus beyond Dublin from Canada! For the most part we have seen
true business class disappear for intra-Europe flights so this will be a
welcome change. (Source Irish Times)

WOW Air, the troubled Icelandic carrier officially
nixed plans to fly to Vancouver next year. If you have purchases tickets
for those flights you can get a refund from the airline or your credit
card company. (Source Routesonline)

We are still looking for someone who would be interested in reviewing the newly opened Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge in St. John’s. If you are interested please email us at info@rewardscanada.ca (we do pay you for it!)
