News in brief:

citizenM Spring hotel sale ends tomorrow

A quick reminder that the citizenM Spring sale, offering up to 25% off stays between 27th February and 31st August 2023, ends tomorrow Sunday 12th March.

There are a limited number of rooms available in the sale but I had a look at a few destinations and dates and could see pretty good availability.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in London over the next few months, the Tower of London citizenM has enviable views and there was plenty of Spring Sale availability when we checked. You can see our review of the hotel here.

United Airlines adds a second Edinburgh flight to Newark

United Airlines adds a second Edinburgh flight to Newark

United Airlines is going double daily on its Edinburgh to Newark flights this Summer.

The second daily flight will operate from 25th May to 28th September. The new service will leave Edinburgh at 1.30pm (the current flight is 9.40am) to land in Newark at 4.10pm.

The return is late (11.50pm from Newark) but there is also the option of the existing service which leaves at 8.15pm, landing at 8.05am.

Whilst reward space in premium cabins is usually hard to find on transatlantic flights, United is a Star Alliance member. You’d be looking at using MileagePlus, Miles & More, KrisFlyer or similar miles to book a seat.
