Note: Things are a bit light this week, as I’m traveling with my brother and father to Germany to visit the Christmas Markets. Check out my thoughts of the Christmas Markets of Mainz last year, taking my wife and mother in law.

- American Airlines ceases selling tickets for pesos in Argentina.
- Royal Air Maroc will fly their 787 Dreamliner to Washington Dulles from Casablance. I’m certainly appreciating all the 787 Dreamliner options from Dulles.
- Thai Aviation received a downgrade from the FAA. Probably not much impact, but, and maybe I’m reading too much into this, but it seems like the Military Junta has more work to do.
- Dia shares her latest Hyatt Diamond experience. I’ve had varying experiences myself, although my one experience at the Hyatt Chesapeake wasn’t amazing to begin with.
- How many of the 15 longest commercially operated (or scheduled to operate) flights do you know?
- Malaysia Airlines becomes the latest Emirates partner. This seems to me like a very smart move for Malaysia Airlines, as they are likely to get a fair amount of feed traffic (as Alaska Air gets), and can focus on the fundamentals as the airline rebuilds.
Miles and Points:
- Loosely filed under Miles and Points, Matt makes a statement in response to a blogger who’s trying to confuse his readers–my read, at least.
- Gary Leff shares a way to transfer Membership Rewards points to British Airways Avios 1-to-1.
