The HfP chat thread – Thursday 9th December

We are running 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.

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.

    My sister is in Jamaica , check in staff for TUI won’t recognise that under 18 year olds have one jab only to be fully vaccinated – won’t allow them to board unless they purchase a day 8 test ! (They already have day 2 tests booked as per recent changes) .

    Appreciate that the rules have changed recently and my niece can now get her second vaccine but she couldn’t until recently due to the timing of the first. Very stressful situation …

    Any news regarding the return of free breakfast for Gold and Diamond at USA Hilton properties in 2022?

      ….and drink vouchers for Gavin?

      Isn’t that it now – this is the new normal?

      • BJ says:

        Probably, I think it’s more likely we will see benefits reduced elsewhere than reintroduced in USA. Hope I’m wrong though.

        Supposed to be for 2021 only. Very confusing, was at Hilton last week in Atlanta and $12 food credit but breakfast cost $16 just a total PITA.

        No 2 room upgrade and free mini bar either!.

    Has anyone returned from the Maldives recently with Qatar Airways? There have been some reports that they are not accepting lateral flow tests for flights back to the UK?
