    Has anyone already made plans for 2017? Any trips planned? I have a whole bunch of upcoming Hilton stays in Europe as I'm currently doing the Hilton Diamond challenge. Besides that, I have a 3 week trip planned to Sri Lanka in May.

    I'll be flying there on QR first class, hike around with my backpack through the inlands and return back to Europe on Etihad first class from Mumbai. Looking forward to that trip as I've never been there before.

    Awesome trip Lionell!

    I'm off to the US in a few weeks with an old friend - Iberia Biz from Madrid to Chicago, then a bit of a whistlestop tour (Chicago, Washington, Boston New York) for about 9 days. Haven't booked anything back yet, and might visit anther couple of places by myself. In particular, maybe Texas because I'm oddly fascinated, have never been and could then fly SQ biz back direct to Manchester!

    That does sound great. I'm planning a reward flight to the Caribbean via the BA 241 (hopefully in First, maybe Business depending on availability), then a cruise round the islands.

    Just waiting to hear when and if Hyatt will be running a bonus points promotion this winter. Then I will choose somewhere warm and exotic for a week or two and upgrade myself to a suite while I'm at it. :)

    Also need to squeeze in a trip to spend the rest of my HHonors points before I drop from Diamond on 31 March. A nice Conrad in Asia would certainly do the trick...

    Sounds great - don't suppose any of you have some tips for a quick trip to Madrid?

    I have booked some more trips in the meantime. After my trip to Sri Lanka, I'll head to Tokyo for a weekend in July. Flying QR business class on the A350, I was able to book a very cheap ticket during the Travel Festival promotion.

    Later in the year in October, I'll be heading to Bali, also in QR biz class. In November I'm doing the Tallinn tier point run twice. This will qualify me for BA Gold :)
