Yesterday I mentioned a few ways you can maintain your British Airways elite status. One of the methods included requesting a suspension of re-qualification requirements if you have a new child. Today Aegean Airlines, our favourite airline for Star Alliance Gold, announced the launch of a similar scheme. Here it is called “Tier Hold”. Similar…

Last week I posted some great fares starting out of Sweden. Now they are being matched by airlines representing every major alliance.
Turkish Airlines are offering an incredibly generous promotion which could potentially see you go from zero to Star Alliance gold in just one trip. Until 15th June 2017 Economy class will earn 2x status miles while Business class will earn 4x status miles.
The Swiss Explorer is the new 6-month job posting being offered by Swiss Airlines. You’ll be flying around the world reviewing their air and ground services and getting paid to do it. Sound too good to be true? Well it might be so do take caution!
Oil workers rejoice! Your safety-minded employers who, where possible, prohibit flight transfers can breathe a sigh of relief. SAS will launch an all-business class service between Houston (IAH) and Stavanger (SVG) starting 20th August 2014, just days ahead one of Norway’s largest Oil and Gas conferences.

He does, however, miss the other golden details about why A3 is so good with their earnings in economy class. A3 have long been known in the air miles…
The fun about having a blog called “Points to be Made” is that if I want to rant or say anything ludicrous, then it still fits the title. This post comes from Mike who writes the blog “Ik Vlieg Veel” (That means “I fly a lot” to you and me!). We’ve been in contact since we…
Star Alliance have just posted something interesting on Facebook. There are 36 prizes of Star Alliance gold to be won.
Having recently booked KLM flights and successfully avoided their €10 fee, I was more than happy to take on the challenge when I noticed SAS was trying the same on me.
Do you remember I posted an article on getting free Star Alliance Silver, or “Frequent Traveller” status as few weeks ago?
I briefly mentioned the existence of the Flying Blue Petrolum club in passing in this post, but reader Damon’s comment in that post inspired me to do this write this new one.
