Many Gulf Countries Cut Ties With Qatar: This all has been developing very quickly but several gulf nations (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, Bahrain, the Maldives, Yemen and Libya) are cutting ties with the country of Qatar. How is this travel related? Well, you can’t fly to Qatar from any of these nations, nor can you fly from Qatar into these nations. I personally know of a family vacationing in Dubai at the moment that flew Qatar Airways to Doha, then on to Dubai. It will be interesting how they get back home.
Free Flights on Private Jets: Here’s an interesting promotion. If you have elite status with a major airline, or 1 million or more frequent flyer miles or credit card points, then you can get a free 3-month membership with JetSmarter. Some of the perks with this membership include a free seat on certain routes, a free seat on last minute routes and more. This could be appealing to many since I’m sure several of our readers have more than 1 million points/miles currently.
Wyndham Rewards Partners With Caesars Total Rewards: With these two programs teaming up, you will be able to enjoy your current status with the other program as well. If you’re currently a Diamond member in one, you’ll have the same status with the other program. There will also be 1-1 points transfers between programs. If you enjoy Caesars’ properties, then this partnership will definitely be appealing to you.
