Berlin-based airline Germania goes bankrupt

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Whilst it shouldn’t impact many HFP readers, it is worth knowing – as a sign of the parlous state of European aviation – that Berlin-based airline Germania filed for bankruptcy on Monday.

Originally a charter airline, it had moved heavily into scheduled services in recent years.  Whilst it did not fly to the UK, you may have seen or even flown on one of its aircraft last year as British Airways was using the airline to operate some BA flights from Gatwick over the Summer.

    No comments on the Radisson changes?
    Walsall was only 9000 points a couple of years ago and I am not sure that it is really worth 15 000 points, certainly not 28 000, which is a huge leap. Same goes for the other Birmingham area hotel.
    I guess I have a couple of weeks to use my 30 000 before they become pretty much worhless.
    Time to dump the scheme once I have found a use for the points, I think!

    I have the following Marriott offer:-
    Stay at any of our 6,700 participating hotels and resorts worldwide now through (I assume that they mean until?) 30/04/2019.
    Get 7,500 bonus points after one stay and 15,000 additional points after your second stay.

    A Marriott question:-
    Just completed a three night points+cash stay. I now have 3 nights showing on my a/c, but it also says 0 points credited. Is this normal for Marriott points+cash stays?
    Thanks.

    I just got a targeted email from SPG, double elite nights on all eligible nights from the date after you register until 30 April. So maybe these offers are slowly making their way out.
