Training Program Updates

We’ve recently made the following updates to the Frequent Flyer Solutions training program…

New award search tool

We’ve extended Unit 5.3.4 (previously just covering AwardEx) to also include information about Juicy Miles, a new award searching tool.

Updated status runs

We’ve updated our selection of current Qantas and Virgin Australia status runs in Unit 8.1.2 (Status Runs).

Air Niugini award availability now showing on Qantas website

It’s now possible to book Air Niugini awards on the Qantas website. This leaves Jet Airways as the only Qantas partner airline for which award flights cannot be booked online. Updated Unit 5.1.1 (Redeeming Points for Flights) and Unit 5.3.1 (Introduction to Specialised Online Tools).

Malaysia Airlines removes Oneworld multi-carrier awards

Malaysia Airlines’ Enrich program is no longer offering Oneworld multi-carrier awards, which previously could be used to fly around the world. Updated Unit 7.2.3 (Round-the-World using Points).

Updates on buying Qantas and Velocity Points

We’ve completely updated Unit 4.1.3 (Buying Qantas & Velocity Points) to reflect recent changes made by both airlines. Both airlines have recently removed many restrictions that applied when buying points and increased their purchase limits. Meanwhile, Qantas has increased its prices while Velocity has done the opposite and started offering bonus points on purchases.

New LifeMiles website

LifeMiles last month introduced a brand new website. We’ve updated the information, images, links and LifeMiles award chart in Unit 4.2.4 (Avianca LifeMiles).

Upgrade updates

We’ve updated the list of airlines (there are many new additions!) that offer online upgrade auctions in Unit 6.2.1 (Online Upgrade Auctions) as well as the list of airlines offering OptionTown upgrades in Unit 6.2.2 (Other Cheap Upgrade Strategies).

Updated travel insurance discount codes

We’ve updated the list of travel insurance discount codes in Unit 10.2.6 (Travel Insurance).

Updates to credit card sign-up offers

We continuously update the Credit Card Master List from Unit 3.2.4 (Choose the Right Credit Card), as well as Unit 3.3.1 (Bonus Sign-up Points), at the start of every month. This was last updated in March 2019.
