Weekend Roundup of Travel News & Deals

Welcome to the (unofficial) start of summer! Amid your weekend festivities, please bear in mind the meaning of Memorial Day and take a moment to remember those who served.

I received an email from Cunard Line about their military cruise benefit and wanted to pass it along as a reminder that such discounts are often available (though not always broadly advertised) with other travel providers as well. If in doubt, it never hurts to ask!

Travel news and stories

Speaking of serene, I snapped this flying into Munich earlier this month. Can never get enough of the scenery on that approach.

A couple of quick deal notes

You can earn up to 100,000 bonus American AAdvantage miles for qualifying roundtrip flights between North America and Europe.

There’s a similar offer for earning bonus British Airways Avios although this one excludes Mexico.

Don’t forget to register first.

The catch with these is the flight needs to be in full-fare economy or higher. (If you’re unsure which fares qualify, the T&Cs specify which fare classes do.)

So these promos could work well for business travel if your employer buys such fares; not so much if you’re looking at discounted fares.

Enjoy the holiday weekend!
