Rewards Canada reached two milestones this month: the 50th issue of Rewards Canada News, and our 3rd anniversary! I can't believe Rewards Canada has been online for three years already. I have really enjoyed putting the sites together, updating them and look forward to many more years of this, I hope that all of you do too.

Airline & Program News

Alitalia has introduced the ability to redeem miles to upgrade flights to Magnifica class from Y,B,M or H economy class tickets. Upgrades from Canada or the US to Italy require 25,000 miles one way, 50,000 round trip. Full details can be found here.

Canjet announced that by June 2005 it will increase it's fleet size by 50%. The four 737-500's will also Canjet increase frequencies and offer more non-stop routes of greater length then those that can be handled by their old 737-200's.

JetsGo has followed in Air Canada's footsteps by offering online check in for those travelling without any bags.

It seems that Air Canada's Aeroplan set the precedent last year when it introduced fees for booking reward travel by phone as United Airlines and Northwest have both followed suit. United will charge $15 for reward tickets booked by means other then online and Northwest will charge $5 for domestic reward tickets only. Northwest will also charge $5 on regular paid tickets purchased through NWA's phone in reservations and $10 at airport locations. Once again there are no fees for booking travel on NWA's website. United will also increase the reward ticket change fee from $75 to $100 when it implements all the new fees on October 15, 2004.

Both American Airlines and United Airlines have introduced some short haul reward tickets akin to Air Canada's. For flight under 750 miles you can now redeem 15,000 miles versus the previous 25,000 miles required. These are being offered on a short term basis from Sep 1 to Dec 31. Tickets must be booked online at the respective airlines websites.

New Routes
Air Canada will launch weekly service between Toronto and St. Maarten starting Dec. 18. Flights will operate on Saturday's with 767-300's.
