INFORMATION:
The program has the basics covered of earning points with flights, credit card spend and hotel stays but the program does not offer points for many of the ways other frequent flyer programs feature such as car rentals and shopping. The program also does not offer a points plus cash award option, or a way for members to donate their points to charity. Also, awards are confined to flights.
