I stumbled on Points and Pixie Dust’s Feecation post, which is quite an interesting program for reimbursing travel fees. You can get up to $10 for Airport, Hotel, Car, and Wi-Fi fees but the monthly fee is only $16.97 with first month free trial. If you don’t have elite statuses and do incur these incidental fees then it might be an option to consider.
The Points Guy also has a very interesting post on Air France First Class award space. Elite awards are getting eliminated along with the other devaluations, so that means AF F might be available to all members (albeit at 82,500 miles + YQ). Details on the AF site.From this FT trip report, their ground services looks quite good although their in-flight product looks a bit dated.
Delta is raising the change fees to match US Airways and United. Bleh.
