What is happening to the world?! A woman dressed as Minnie Mouse got into a fight on the Las Vegas Strip. Some tourism officials want people to not visit Amsterdam. And a guy released rodents in hotel rooms — just to get comped.

Those headlines and more in just a few minutes. But first, here’s what happened this week at Rene’s Points!

Delta and American Express refreshed their co-branded cards on Thursday. Some jaw-dropping welcome bonuses were announced — including two for 20,000 MQM! Plus, four of the cards received metal upgrades. Here’s how existing cardholders can get theirs.

Want to visit a Sky Club? Here’s an updated list of American Express cards that will get you in.

Keep this in mind for next year: even if you drop or lose Delta status, it doesn’t expire until the end of January.

What do you think about Delta’s new first class seats?

This was sort of a sobering week. The coronavirus outbreak news drastically escalated from a Delta travel waiver to the airline outright canceling flights to and from China. For three months. I asked readers if some that and other bad news caused them to rethink travel plans.

On the ground, a number of Uber users were affected by mass shutdowns. Some Fly Delta app users were startled when strangers’ itineraries appeared on their screen.

Have you noticed a personal vs. business login option on Delta.com? Here’s what’s going on.

Don’t like the new booking page on Delta.com? René showed us how to access the older, better page — until it got redirected Friday afternoon.

We blogged a deal about some noise-canceling earphones. The special is still live as of post time, so take advantage of it while you can!

Check out this lunch René and the BRU Crew enjoyed — during a 30-minute flight. Also, during their mileage run, they stopped at the new The Club at Las Vegas. Read Rene’s review.

Frequent floaters: do you miss towel animals?

A Delta Air Lines Airbus A330-300 (A330-323, to be exact), tail number N813NW, is seen at London Heathrow Airport (LHR).
