Chase Ink Sign-Up Bonus Increase, AA to Johannesburg, $5 Trip To Chicago And United Is Talking About Delta’s Changes. Things I Find Interesting On Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Chase Ink cards that earn Ultimate Rewards points are my favorite cards. View From the Wing is reporting that sign-up bonuses have increased to 60,000 points from the normal 50,000.

The last time Chase did this it only lasted about a week, so you should consider this sooner than later.

How about a $5 trip to Chicago? Points and Pixie Dust did just that with a little bit of planning.

United is sending up smoke signals about converting to a more revenue-based frequent flyer program. HT: chitownflyer on Milepoint

Is American planning service from the US to Joburg?. That’s what Carolina Travel Girl is discussing. Honestly, that seemed to me the type of route that seems ripe for a 787, but it seems to be right at the fringe of the range for the 787 at just over 8,000 miles.

What’s going on in your travel world today?
