1. Delta Adding Premium Economy to International Flights
Via Skift, Delta is adding a Premium Economy class to international flights around mid-2017
This is NOT simply a coach seat with a bit more legroom. Delta promises a more comfortable seat along with higher quality meals and service.
It will be included in Delta’s new Airbus A350s, which should be delivered in early 2017. These planes will replace their 747s, which fly mostly on their trans-Pacific routes.

Million Mile Secrets reader Alex writes:
I was wondering if you can give me advice on choosing the right credit card. I already have a Miles & More (Lufthansa) account and ~30,000 miles or so in there.
I’m located in Miami and I try to stick to Lufthansa or Star Alliance partners as my preferred airlines. I fly at least 2 times a year to Europe or Asia but also make some trips within the US.
Great question, Alex! It can be hard to decide which miles & points to collect for your trip, especially if you’re new to our hobby.
If you already have an idea of where & how you want to travel and which airlines or alliances you prefer, you can narrow down your choices of which credit cards to apply for.
And knowing which airlines serve your home airport will help a great deal in making a decision!

Via Reddit, the rumor mill is blowing unsourced news that American Express will be scrapping its current policy to disallow you from earning the sign-up bonus on a card if you’ve ever had the card before.
I’m selective about the unsubstantiated buzz I post because it sometimes turns out to be incorrect!
In this case I’m writing about it because it makes sense that AMEX would relax their strict policy based on what else has been happening with them.
If the Rumor Is True, Folks Who Closed Cards Like the Premier Rewards Gold and Starwood AMEX Would Be Eligible to Earn the Sign-Up Bonus Again. That’d Make It Easier to Get Free Stays at Places Like the St. Regis Princeville Resort
Also, I want it to be true so very, very badly!
