February 27 Update: Shangri-La Hotels extending Golden Circle Elite status due to Coronavirus, Lufthansa to fly Calgary-Frankfurt with their Eurowings subsidiary & 5x More Rewards Points for Coast Hotels stays

If you listened to the latest Rewards Canada Podcast episode you’ll
have heard us discussing hotel loyalty programs extending elite status
for members in China or those who travel to China frequently. Shangri-La Hotels
is the latest to do so and they are going beyond just residents of or
frequent travellers to China and giving all their elite members an
extension of status. We received our status via the Platinum Card from American Express so it would automatically renew anyways but this still a
great move by the hotel chain in just extending it for everyone!

Looks like the with the sale of Condor Airlines to Poland’s LOT, Lufthansa will be bringing in their charter carrier Eurowings
to the Calgary-Frankfurt route for the 2020 Summer season. It will
operate 4x weekly for most of the season and can be booked directly with
Lufthansa (great for Miles & More, Aeroplan and other Star Alliance
members). Details aren’t out yet if you can book direct with Eurowings and choose to credit to Eurowings’ own loyalty program –
the cool named Boomerang Club. We cover Boomerang Club on our global
site (see that page here)
and will add it shortly to the Rewards Canada site if it does become available. If I’m not mistaken this will be first city served in Canada by Eurowings. The
flight will operate with an A330-200. (Source RoutesOnline)
