Lan Airlines LANPASS is changing the amount of
kilometers earned in some fare classes on International flights. Their
base plus economy class fares drop from 100% of mileage flown to 75%
while Premium Business goes uip to 150% from 125%. While Base fares (the
lowest economy class) sees a drop from 100% to 50% on long haul routes.
Not surprising to see these, most airlines award at least that amount
in business class if not more while many also don’t award the full
amount in lower economy class fares so LAN is essentially aligning
themselves with their competition although that Base class cut to 50%
from 100% on long haul flights is a pretty big hit. (Source: ThePointsGuy

Expedia’s Canadian branch, Expedia.ca has launched
their own loyalty program called Expedia+. The program looks likes and
runs much like the U.S. version (in fact the Expedia+ page on .ca is
pretty much the same as the Expedia+ Rewards
page on .com, the only difference is the C in front of the Dollar Signs
and the U.S.’s ability to donate points to St. Jude Hospital!)
