- Seth Miller asks the question of whether Singapore’s new Canberra – Wellington fifth freedom route makes sense. The same question could be asked on the other leg, Singapore – Canberra too..
- Gary Leff shares news on Diamond Suite Upgrades. Previously you could use them past expiration, as long as they were “booked” before they expired. In 2017, that will no longer be the case.
- MJ on Travel shares his insights onto some of the highlights of cheap oil (which, so far as I can tell, has been part of the reason the market has been down the past few days).
Miles and Points
- Gary Leff presents an interesting analysis of American Express’ downward direction.
- Oren shares lessons learned from using Amazon’s Inventory Placement Service (IPS). It’s costly, but can sometimes work.
- Ok, this is loosely under reselling, but Tashir shares his experience having a car stolen, when renting out with Turo. Its an interesting read, and this side gig has been intriguing to me for a while, I just haven’t wanted to tie up so much capital just yet, since I can turn things much more quickly on FBA.
- Pizza in Motion shares a timelapse of Southwest painting Missouri One
- Airways News reports that Boeing will cut 747-8 production to .5 aircraft per month. Yet another unfortunate nail in the coffin of the Queen of the Skies.
