For most of us, today will be the first full week back at work – or at the least the first week with all of your colleagues around – for some time.
If you found sitting on a beach more interesting than reading Head for Points during August – although you can do both you know …. – here are links to the key stories we ran and which you may have missed.
September is usually the peak period for new offers and deal, so keep checking HfP daily to see what is new. Purely in terms of reviews, September should see:
Anika taking a look at Delta One – is it a better use of your Virgin Atlantic miles than Virgin Upper Class?
…. and she visits the Virgin Clubhouse at Heathrow for the first time
I am taking a look at the well-regarded American Airlines business class on the 77W fleet – is it a better use of your Avios than British Airways Club World?
I will be taking advantage of the new cheap Marriott Rewards redemptions at luxury hotels to see if St Regis New York really is worth $1,100 per night
Jamie, who wrote a well-received series of Virgin Atlantic reviews for us recently, will be contributing some more flight and lounge reviews as he spends a month travelling to and around Asia in Business Class on BA, Qatar Airways and Malaysia Airlines
We have also some more competitions lined up as well as a couple of exclusive offers.
