News in brief:
£100 off the Air New Zealand Skycouch to Los Angeles
Regular readers will know that we gave away a flight to Los Angeles on the Air New Zealand Skycouch last year.
The Skycouch, which I reviewed here, allows two people to pay a supplement to reserve a row of three economy seats. These are special seats, however, as the base flips up to create a bed!
As long as you fly to LA before 22nd June, Air New Zealand will let a group of two passengers book the Skycouch for £100 off – just £199 extra (in total, not each). Even if you aren’t bothered about making it into a bed, this is a bargain price to guarantee a row of three seats to yourselves for 13 hours.
Full details can be found on the Air New Zealand website here.
5% off Qatar Airways flights
Qatar Airways has launched a short-term discount code worth 5% off Economy and Business Class flights from the UK.
Remember that the new Birmingham service is now up and running!
The code in FLYFIVE and is valid for bookings until 18th April. You must travel by 15th December. Full terms and conditions and the booking link are here.
However, a warning. Some heavily discounted Qatar business class flights are now being sold in ‘R’ booking class. At present, British Airways is not recognising ‘R’ and will not award any Avios or tier points for such flights if taken today. Recent reports on Flyertalk, from BA sources, say that ‘R’ class WILL earn in BAEC from early May.
Using up old credit cards
Finally, reader Mark dropped me a line to say that he had just had a clear-out of all of the travel credit cards which he had applied for recently and now no longer needed.
Like a good boy, he cut them up neatly before disposing of them (click to enlarge):
