Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well. A year ago, I wrote My Rock Solid 2021 Airline, Hotel & Credit Card Predictions. It is now time to review my 2021 predictions and see how right (or wrong) I was. My original predictions are in black, I will comment in green if my prediction was right, and comment in red if my prediction was wrong. Let’s see how I did…
My 2021 Airline Predictions (1 for 3)
- Alaska Airlines or Southwest Airlines will make their “convert travel funds to airline miles” feature a permanent feature on their site. Wrong – sadly this was a temporary feature that each airline introduced in 2020 but they did not make this a permanent feature in 2021.
- American Airlines will finally become a Citi ThankYou Points airline transfer partner. Right – but only for a few months. I hope American Airlines comes back as a Citi ThankYou Point airline transfer partner in 2022.
- Delta Airlines or United Airlines will introduce a “Cash and Miles” payment option for award tickets (pay 10,000 miles or pay 8,000 miles + $40). Wrong – neither Delta nor United introduced a “Cash and Miles” payment option.
