News and notes from around the interweb:
- The man who sued Continental Airlines for refusing to accept cash for inflight sales lost. (HT: uggboy on Milepoint)
- Removing hard inquiries from your credit report. ‘Bumpage’ isn’t as easy as it used to be.
- Hilton HHonors changed its terms and conditions with no notice to say that elite benefits don’t apply to things that hotels charge resort fees for. That way elites can’t argue that since they get those things free they shouldn’t be on the hook for resort fees. When resort fees shouldn’t be charged anyway, since they’re really just a hidden part of the room rate. Poor form to take away elite benefits on resort stays to extract resort fees from them, and poor form to make changes buried in the terms and conditions of the program with no notice or even announcement.
- Delta’s partnership with Starwood is expanding even further: Westin Heavenly Inflight Bedding for international business class. (HT: skyvan on Milepoint)
