Gift cards for the airline via Lightning is better than on-chain directly with the airline unless you properly mix your coin for privacy.

Gift cards with travel agencies isn't as good a deal from what I can see.

In the Bitcoin is Venice book they have a chapter called Bitcoin is Halal. This makes sense
