A Delta Air Lines passenger allegedly struck a flight attendant — and now the FAA is proposing a $27,500 fine.

In other passenger news, a United Airlines traveler got his pepper spray past TSA screening — and accidentally deployed it on his flight just before takeoff. (As you do.)

We’ll get to those stories and much more in a few minutes. But first, here’s a quick recap of this past week at Rene’s Points!

15 Amex cards have monthly statement credits expiring this weekend. Here’s a rundown so you don’t forget!

A mere two days after a United Airlines Boeing 777-200 made an emergency landing because of engine failure, a Delta Air Lines Boeing 757-200 flight was diverted — reportedly because of trouble with its left engine.

United and Chase rolled out an interesting promotion for a cobranded business credit card.

Ever wanted a free private jet trip? A Bahamian resort may very well give you one — but there’s a rather big catch involved.

Major news in the family travel world: a Peppa Pig theme park is opening next year.

Flying taxis are only three-ish years away. (But I thought we sort of already have them?)

IHG has decided to focus on its mid-range hotels. Not sure how this much different from what they were doing before now.

Delta Air Lines is apparently hiring someone whose job is to get the SkyMiles program to the top of frequent flyer lists.

You know who else is hiring? Avelo Airlines — who is apparently coming to Hollywood-Burbank Airport.

We published a post comparing Amex’s Blue Cash cards: the Everyday and Preferred.

Curious if Delta will send you a 2021 Medallion kit if you were “gifted” status? We have the answer.
