Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Thursday 11th February

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

We have decided to run this daily chat thread on Head for Points during the coronavirus outbreak.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the de facto repository for random comments and questions.  With the news flow being lighter, we are running fewer ‘Bits’ articles.

The comments under this article are where you should post questions about travel and, indeed, anything else on your mind.  At this tricky time, and given that many of you are at home, we want the HfP community to have a place to chat.

Please only comment under the main articles on the site if your comment is directly related to the topic of the article.  This has long-term benefits as it keeps the commentary relevant for people who read those articles in the future.

Old chat threads are hidden from the HfP home page.  If you want to look for something in an old thread, click here.  This brings up all the articles in our ‘General’ category which includes the chat threads.

    Can I upgrade a cash economy booking on Royal Jordanian into a biz seat using avios?

  • Rk says:

    I do not understand the “lol” on every line you comment, what is so funny, do you know this is abbreviation for laugh out loud.

    • Aston100 says:

      Seems your comment has appeared randomly on this page.
      I’m going to assume you were referring to Chris Heyes, as he does seem to make ample usage of that acronym.

    • ggd4 says:

      He’s like 80 years old, we should be congratulating him for not being racist/brexiteering on each post.

      “Lols” are a small price to pay

      • bazza says:

        Grouping these two together? racist/brexiteering

        I thought Brexit was about leaving the EU – never thought of that as racist?

        Any idea what race in the EU the leave vote didn’t like?

        Are most 80 year olds racist?

    • TGLoyalty says:

      He’s using it correctly so I’m sure he knows what he is saying

    • Super Secret Stuff says:

      Lol this is quite funny when it’s out of context 🤣

    • Jill (Kinkell) says:

      Never understood this modern ‘lol’ business . In my day it meant ‘lots of love ‘ and indeed, when typing lol, predictive text turns it into lots of love ❤️
