Covid-19: Airlines and hotels extend elite status for select members

Several airlines frequent flyer and hotel loyalty programmes have announced membership extensions for affected members. Here are the details. LAST UPDATED: 29 April 2020 With Covid-19 entering now heading into its fifth month soon and seeing no signs of easing, global travel has taken a severe beating. Airlines have made drastic cuts to their capacity, while hotels are reporting all-time low occupancy rates. Moreover, China now makes up one of the most significant group of members that any airline or hotel will want, so I will imagine any loyalty programme manager will want to ensure that this group returns to the fold once the crisis is over. Several programmes have announced expiry extensions for their elite members, almost most of them are targeted at members in Greater China. See below for details.

Singapore Airlines Spontaneous Escapes March 2020 offer now on

Singapore Airlines have unveiled its offerings for the March edition of Spontaneous Escapes, with 55 destinations on sale. Surprisingly for a school holiday month, there seems to be a bumper crop of destinations on offer, although there are also plenty of restrictions. One possible reason for the extraordinary availability could be Covid-19, although China is (obviously) not on offer at all. The promotional mileage is 30% off the usual redemption rates, down from the one-off 51% discount last month. As usual, bookings must be made by 29 February 2020, for travel between 1 to 31 March 2020, barring blackout dates. What is good this month? If you still dare to travel in the month of March, you can consider the following: Barcelona, Dusseldorf, Rome and Zurich are all available in Business Class available at 64,400 miles plus taxes. San Francisco on SQ1/2, going at 66,500 miles each way. Note that SQ1/2 will be operating non-stop to/from SFO between 17 Feb and 28 Mar to avoid Hong Kong.
