2.   The End of American Express’ Plenti Program

I let you know that the AMEX Plenti points program was coming to an end.  And now, via The Points Guy, we know that the program will officially end July 10, 2018.

If you have a stash of Plenti points, you should use them sooner rather than later!

3.   No More International First Class on United Airlines

Via One Mile At a Time, United Airlines will stop selling First Class seats on all international flights as of June 20, 2018.

Instead, they plan to offer their new(ish) Polaris service.  That includes better seats, food, bedding, and amenities.  You can read a review of United Airlines Polaris Business Class here.
