    Please do not post here until Wednesday 🙂

    This is today’s chat thread. We have moved the daily discussion from the main HfP news feed into the new forum. We hope you get used to it.

    If you have specific questions about Avios, hotels or credit cards, please ask them in the appropriate forum and not here. This thread is a good place to post interesting deals you have spotted or your general thoughts on travel and all things miles and points. Thank you for contributing.

    I guess creating the chat thread is still not automated.

    Apparently not (second!). Very trivial to do though.

    Hello hello, good morning! Would love recommendations for activities and restaurants in LA. We’ll be there for 7 nights over Christmas – 3N at the Beverly Hills Wilshire and 4N at intercontinental downtown. Family in their 30’s with a 4y old. First time going abroad after Oct 2019, so quite excited!

    Looks like Marriott offers (50 off 200, and 100 off 400) on Amex have been extended. Was originally until 31/12/2021, but now showing as expiring 28/02/2022.

    My plans to go in May 2020 were cancelled for obvious reasons, and I’d similarly booked to stay at the FS Beverly Wilshire and WA. I think my dinner reservations were at Sugarfish, Jean-Georges Beverly Hills, CUT by Wolfgang Puck and Spago.

    Edit: in reply to aviosnewbie33 — this new forum reply function is somehow a downgrade from the comments sections…

    I have a night in the Renaissance Warsaw Airport Hotel booked for this Friday 17/12. Can no longer travel. It’s not refundable and in true Christmas spirit the hotel has told me to PFO when I asked to change it. Was booked through Expedia (who offered to be flexible) so should be able to do a name change if anyone can use it?

    IAG’s Air Europa acquisition looks to be off/paused. Press reporting the deal is suspended, but officially the agreement is being terminated.

    I’m finding the forum a huge time saver. After a couple of minutes I just give up and stop reading!

    Having a daily chat thread in a forum seems to be the worst of both worlds.

    Have you asked Expedia? To be honest I’m kinda with the hotels on these, we’ve all known for long enough now that travel is at risk and most hotels offer a flexible rate. I am trying to keep everything flexible as you just can’t predict at the moment.

    Yes – it doesn’t seem to be working too well…

    Matsuhisa – Nobu’s original restaurant. The Ivy. Spago. The polo lounge at the beverly hills hotel. The Farmers market. We went with a 2 year old. What a trip.

    Exactly. It’s a bit like VAR in football. The forum is great and saves lot of time, but becoming pointless with a daily chat thread.

    Expedia were happy to refund but hotel wouldn’t. Yes, I understood the terms of the rate I bought …but hotels can equally generate a lot of goodwill by offering flexibility in certain circumstances.

    That’s a shame, I’ve usually found Expedia pretty good at persuading the hotels to refund. Hopefully wasn’t a fortune!
