Hundreds of frequent flyer enthusiasts from forums like Flyertalk and Milepoint get together and fly around the world together and meet with various airline and hotel executives. Star of course refers to Star Alliance. A DO (pronounced like the word do or due) is simply a get-together while a MegaDo is a really big get together. Space to attend these events is always quite limited and there is a cost from $1,000 up to $5,000 depending on how much of the event you want to attend (domestic or international+domestic) and what class you’ll be sitting in on the plane. Participants were treated to flying a brand new United 787 Dreamliner among many other goodies. I was invited to attend the United portion of the DO in Chicago for free so that’s what I’ll talk about. … [Read more...] about Trip Report: United DO 2012 In Chicago

Never Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on FacebookUpdate, 10/5: American has now blocked 10/18 from saver award redemption on all of the routes below as that date is now within 2 weeks. This confirms American’s 2 week award blocking pattern on many nonstop routes. DDF member farmbochur posted yesterday, “Has AA started blacking out saver availability within 2 weeks? I’ve been monitoring PIT-NYC over the last couple weeks. There seems to consistently be plenty of availability for many dates, but it all disappears once I’m within 14 days.” Delta eliminated close-in fees for booking award tickets within 3 weeks, but they simply charged more miles for flights within 3 weeks that more than offset that benefit. It was a devaluation in sheep’s clothing: Some of the most valuable award redemptions are for last minute tickets when paid flights are expensive but award tickets are cheap. The value of Delta miles is low because they’re … [Read more...] about Ouch! Is American Blacking Out Nonstop Saver Award Availability Within 2 Weeks Of Flights?

Never Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on FacebookLast night I noticed that a United award flight from Cleveland to LaGuardia was pricing at just 9.5K miles, when it should be 10K miles as a short-haul award. I searched other airports and sure enough, United has launched dynamically priced awards on many routes. In the long-run that’s probably a bad thing, but there are some bargains to be had. For now, there’s still the same price caps on saver and standard awards like before, there are just cheaper options on select dates and routes. That’s much better than Delta which eliminated award charts and now sells basic economy award tickets, but we’ll see where this all winds up. American also has “Web specials” with award pricing that is all over the board and tickets that don’t allow date changes and aren’t available to partner airlines: AA Web Special Pricing: United’s dynamic saver award pricing takes saver awards and drops … [Read more...] about United Launches Dynamically Priced Awards Starting At Just 5K Miles; Roundup Of Award Pricing On All Domestic Routes From NYC!
