Emirates Airlines was one of many airlines with an exhibit at ITB Berlin featuring its First Class and Business Class seats. While not the same as a 10-hour flight experience there was the opportunity to test out seats and see the features of a dozen or so airlines at the Berlin convention.

Inside the Emirates exhibit capsule there was a wall of video displays on their products, an A380 onboard lounge and aircraft showers. Emirates staff guides were stationed to answer questions.

For many members airline promotions are likely the better value earning opportunity for the remainder of 2012 rather than earning Points & Points .
The main question is which HHonors airline promotion should you sign up for?
Each HHonors airline bonus miles promotion is different. Some of the airlines allow unlimited earning and some airlines apply bonus miles to only a few stays or even just one stay. Many of the frequent flyer bonus miles promotions started in October and a large set of new promotions started in November. Most of these offers end December 31, 2012.
