ICICI Bank withdraws Kingfisher Airlines co-branded credit cards

This has been long coming actually. Back in January 2013, American Express withdrew their co-branded card partnership with Kingfisher Airlines.

Back in September 2011, they had a very sweet transfer bonus of 20% for all transfers which ran through November 2011, which I advised everyone to take because the airline was in decent shape and they were on their way to join oneworld. Also, there is a decent list of airline partners where you could book your tickets with your KingClub…
