FFB News Round Up: Major changes to BA Executive Club, United changes partner airline earn rates, Air Astana introduces Economy Sleeper

United is changing mileage accumulation rates for
flights on their partner airlines as of March 1st. Some premium classes will earn more
miles and as one could expect discount economy fare classes get beaten
up big time! (Source One Mile at a time)

As of February 3rd Air Astana is adding a
new inflight service to their flights between Astana and London,
Frankfurt and Paris. Called Economy Sleeper, the new concept will block
off three economy class seats for one person and those seats will be
fitted with a matress cover, duvet and pillow so that you can sleep
across them. Kind of like Air New Zealand’s SkyCouch but not really.

British Airways announced some major changes to the Executive
Club program coming this April. Mostly bad news as many premium awards
are going up in price, some tier bonuses get reduced but on the flip side
some premium revenue tickets will earn more Avios and there are now
lower off-peak awards for British Airways flights. (Source British Airways

Korean Air SKYPASS has changed mileage accumulation rates for
flights on Xiamen Airlines. Full fare biz class increases to 150% from
125% as an example. (Source Korean Air).
