I just became a member of Starwood I was wondering how do you buy the subscriptions and what other things can you but to get points. </font>
The Starwood American Express is, imho, perhaps the best points-earning credit card out there.

The Diners promotion for 3,500 points does run through August 31st.

I have also discovered that the Starwood promotion is still available from their Web site at http://www.starwood.com/preferredgue...h_america.html

last offer listed....Not sure how long this will be available so if you are still interested I would not wait!

I bought the same amount on two seperate occasions, one nline - the other by phone, however never received a confirmation of the purchase. The points though turned up roughly a week later on my strawood account, which I had openend only for this matter. Have done the onward transfer to QF and enjoyed the Concorde week before last

Cheers

Duh - I forgot to look at the date! No doubt, it was a dream of mine to fly in these. I sure hope Branson can get his hands on one!

If you can wait 5-10 years, you might be flying supersonic once again. There is a Japanese company working on the next generation.

Not a chance. They've all been decommissioned and shipped off to aviation museums around the world. Branson was being boastful solely for publicity purposes. He had no intention of buying a Concorde and putting it back into service. The costs of keeping it in the air, let alone flying a scheduled service, would push Virgin under. The guy can't even keep service between Toronto and London going more than six months, how could he keep Concorde flying?

BTW I was among the few dozen FTers who managed to convert their SPG points into QF miles and redeem a return Concorde trip. Experience of a lifetime! Also got an invite to BA's "farewell" party at YYZ where we got to say good bye to BAOG, which happened to be the same Concorde I flew on my trip [and which now resides next to the prototype Boeing 707 in Seattle].

Actually - I flew into CDG on Tuesday (9/13/05), and as we were taxiing down the runway, I saw a Concorde outside of a flight hangar. I was quite surprised, but there was no mistaking this plane. I wonder what it was doing there???

Alas, at that point my only flying experience was limited to WN
