February 5 Update: Turkish Airlines Vancouver route now open for reservations, new Amex Offer for Wayfair and 10 new bonus offersBack in October Turkish Airlines revealed they will start flying to Vancouver from Istanbul in 2020. We now know the schedule and aircraft for the route and that it is now open for reservations (at least for cash bookings). The first flight will take place on June 9 and operate 3x weekly with a Boeing 787-9. Turkish Airlines is a Star Alliance member which means it is a great option for Aeroplan members to utilize for flights to Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. In fact, maybe you’ve seen Turkish’s recent Super Bowl commercial that reiterates the airlines flies to more countries worldwide than any other airline. However at the time of posting this flight was not showing up at all in some Aeroplan and United MileagePlus searches we conducted. All routing from YVR to IST had the routes connecting via Montreal. It is possible if you call in that Aeroplan may be able to find it but with the system switch over there are still super long wait times to get ahold of an agent…

Alaska Airlines new partner airline flight bonus is one Canadians should really consider - earn 10,000 miles on round trip flightsAlaska Airlines released a new flight bonus offer earlier this week that us Canadian’s should take a closer look at. This offer is for all of Alaska’s non-U.S. based partner airlines that fly beyond North America. Meaning out of Canada (or the U.S.) to Europe, Asia, Australia etc. You get the picture. And most of the airlines participating do serve Canada. Save for Fiji Airways, Latam and Singapore Airlines you have 12 airlines that this bonus will work with for flights out of Canada. (See the list of airlines below).This bonus itself is interesting as it is a bonus that will add miles to whatever you earn on a flight so that you reach 5,000 miles earned in total each way as long as you fly between North America and a non-North America destination on one of the participating partner airlines. That means round trip flights will earn 10,000 miles in total. This is a really good bonus especially if you are flying in a fare class that may only earn 25% of the mileage. For example, if you fly the lowest economy fare class on Aer Lingus between Toronto and Dublin and credit it to Mileage Plan you’d only earn 25% of the flown miles or about 1,639 earned miles round trip…
