It’s already the end of September. I. Cannot. Believe. It.

Another big week for us here at Rene’s Points. In case you missed something — or want to read a post again — here’s the week that was!

For starters, we posted this MQD haul over on our Elite Mileage Runs page late yesterday afternoon.

Delta made a pretty huge splash this week and bought 20% of LATAM. On the topic of Delta partners, we discussed using GUCs on Korean Air — and the proper way to use them on Delta aircraft with Premium Select. (H/T OMAAT for the Korean Air scoop.)

René noted that Delta may be relenting on the 30-minute “legal” connection rule (at least in Atlanta).

Lots of people commented on our post asking, “Should Delta and Other Airlines Follow JAL’s Lead About Warning People Where Children Are Seated?” Plenty of feelings on both sides!

Would you take an A220 across an ocean? It might not be far off.

To paraphrase Obi-Wan Kenobi: “That’s not a moon. It’s a space hotel.

Don’t remove pages from your passport — this model learned why.

    Given the headline, I thought that refunds were being issued for having to deal with Justin Bieber, which is completely understandable.
