PointsHoarder 31: Strategic partnerships abound

July 25, 2013

Gracias por escuchar el episodio de esta semana de PointsHoarder. This main focus this week is on a few different partnerships and how those relationships make things either good or bad for consumers. Usually it is good, but not always.

First on that list, United has four different partnerships which came up in the past couple weeks:

Some good there and some bad.

Delta announced a few improvements this week as well. They’re altering their same-day change (SDC) policy again, this time in favor of customers. Gold Medallion or higher members will be able to SDC without paying the $50 fee which cropped up during the last round of changes, among other things. The fare bucket limits still apply.

Delta also announced expansion in Seattle with a new London route launching. Is the Alaska Airlines feed really working or is there something else to it?

Finally, EVA awards are back online at the United website. So are ANA domestic flights. And the ANA domestic options are pretty interesting in terms of routes and timings available.

Lots of fun to be had in this week’s episode, and we mostly still did it in English, thank goodness.
