A LoyaltyLobby reader sent us a question regarding an issue affecting legacy Starwood stays that appear to be posting without Platinum amenity.
Cathay Pacific started rolling out their premium economy product on their widebody jets back in 2012. As of now the airline offers this product on long- and mid-haul flights on their A350-900/1000, B777-300ER, and some of their A330-300.
Recently I had the chance to try Cathay’s premium economy product both on a long-haul (BCN-HKG) and a mid-haul flight (HKG-NRT). In the last year I’ve also flown British Airways World Traveller Plus (you can check my review here) and Air France premium economy (also reviewed here). In comparison, Cathay Pacific offers a much more solid premium economy product.
Hilton Honors made changes to its program in early this year (read more here) and one of the enhancements was the ability of certain Diamond members to gift Gold and Diamond status.
Members that reach 60 nights during their membership year can gift Gold status and once they hit 100 nights Diamond (if they gifted God previously this status will be upgraded).
European budget carrier EasyJet that has a reputation for being one of the best airlines for passengers traveling with hand luggage just increased it’s pricing for checked baggage.

You are required to have the points in your account a minimum of 14 days before the intended stay or the stay is either canceled or converted to a Best Flexible stay as per the T&Cs of the program.
