Passengers who buy a full-fare business-class ticket to any destination served by Austrian Airlines will receive a free overnight stay at a Vienna luxury hotel. The offer is good through 2001, with no blackout periods.

MilePoint.com, a new site that allows frequent fliers to convert their miles and points into a new online currency, now lets travelers use their miles to purchase items from vendors like The Sharper Image, Orvis and L.L. Bean online.
