PointsHoarder 39: The devaluation episode

November 14, 2013

On the plus side, Emirates is now a partner with AmEx Membership Rewards and they’ve got a 25% bonus going on for transfers these days. You will pay fuel surcharges on the awards but it is another option to have.

And the FAA relaxed rules on using electronics on board. We all share some of our experiences with the actual implementation of the rules now that they’re in place.

Finally, I rant about how Doha and Dubai sortof suck.

Enjoy the show!
