You Can Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points to Korean Air Again

I wrote last month that Chase Ultimate Rewards point transfers to Korean Air would return some time in January 2015.

Chase has now confirmed that you’ll be able to transfer points to Korean Air again, starting January 25, 2015.

That’s great news for folks who book award tickets on Korean Air, or like using their miles for travel on partner airlines like Delta.

Should You Transfer Citi ThankYou Points to New Partner Virgin Atlantic?

Via View From the Wing, you can now transfer Citi ThankYou points to Virgin Atlantic.

Last year, Citi introduced points transfer to some airlines, including Singapore Airlines and Flying Blue (Air France / KLM).  It’s always good to have more airline partner choices!

That said, I’m not terribly excited by this news.  Virgin Atlantic is already a Chase Ultimate Rewards and American Express Membership Rewards transfer partner.  And they add big fuel surcharges to their award tickets!

Should You Transfer Citi ThankYou Points To New Partner Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic Is the Newest Citi ThankYou Transfer Partner

But folks who collect Citi ThankYou points might find this useful, especially if they use Virgin Atlantic miles to book award tickets on airlines that don’t add fuel surcharges, like Hawaiian Airlines.

Get Compensated for Delays, Lost Luggage, and More With AirCare

With winter weather upon us and peak holiday travel approaching, folks often want extra protection or travel insurance for their trips.

There’s a new kind of insurance for air travelers to consider.  AirCare will pay you (they say sometimes almost instantly) for flight delays, tarmac delays, missed connections, and delayed or lost luggage.

You can only buy coverage for domestic flights, and Florida and Alaska residents are excluded.

Get Compensated For Delays Lost Luggage And More With AirCare

AirCare Will Cover Delays, Lost Baggage, Missed Connections, and More

The insurance is reasonably priced at $25 per round-trip.  I don’t normally recommend paying for insurance with small amounts of coverage, especially since many credit cards offer travel protection.

And as with all insurance, there are restrictions.  So let’s see if it’s a good deal.
