    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.

    Anyone done the virgin wine case offer? If so, how long did it take for the 3000 virgin points to post?

    Don’t want to cancel before the points come.

    @Meta for your information just arrived back from Marmorosch Bucharest Marriott Autograph collection staying 4 nights for the grand total of 66000 bonvoy points. Excellent stay!! The staff were very friendly the hotel decor was just beautiful, the service and food was great. Only Marriott gold so no breakfast but we got upgraded to the next level room which was very nicely decorated and we had a fantastic view of the old town.
    It’s a great place to stay in the city centre and you can walk to most places. The Vault was opened when we were there so we went for cocktails with friends one evening which was an experience in itself. If you want there is a well equipped gym a swimming pool that was empty while we were there and a great range of treatments in the spa. You will enjoy your stay I am sure. We have stayed in the Intercontinental previously but this has now been taken over by another group but the location of the Marmorosch is hard to beat. Enjoy!!

    News coming that the KLM COO is joining BA as the new COO

    Something about senior managers only failing upwards… Although I guess the problems at KLM are perhaps more to do with Schiphol than the airline itself.

    Heading to the US for a work trip at the end of the month. I’ll be booking my own travel & accommodation then being reimbursed afterwards. Am I right in thinking as a BA PP cardholder I can either eat the 3% FX fee to earn some avios or just use my monzo and lose out?

    Can you expense the FX fee? The alternative is one of the Barclays Avios cards + Curve; but this may get your card cancelled.
