1. Newark to London in Business Class for ~$1,000 Round-Trip
Via One Mile at a Time, a new Business Class only airline, La Compagnie, is offering tickets from Newark to London for just ~$1,000 round-trip!Book by April 24, 2015, for travel between April 24, 2015, and June 30, 2015.
Round-trip Business Class seats from Newark to London typically cost ~$2,000 to ~$4,000. So this is an excellent deal for folks who had plans to pay for a Business Class flight to London.
However, I still prefer to use miles!

And if you take 3 round-trip or six 1-way flights on Southwest by April 18, 2015, you can extend your A-List status through December 31, 2015.
With Southwest A-List status you get:
- 25% bonus on miles

- Priority check-in and security lanes where available
But my favorite Southwest status is the Companion Pass because a friend can fly with you for (almost) free for up to 2 years!

Buying Hyatt points with this bonus may save you some money on the regular price of a Hyatt hotel (depending on where you stay).
