Story goes like this :
In the past 2 years I've been saving up my SkyTeam frequent flier miles in order to fly on the Concorde. (some nice pics in the process Smile)

So right now I've got 120,000 or so  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
But now AF has announced they will retire Concorde as of May 31'st  Sad
So what should I do with all these miles ?

You can sell your FF points @ http://www.airawards.com/sellers.html, or you can give it to charity; some sick person or family member who need to travel, but cannot afford the airfare. You do some good, and maybe it's also tax deductable.  Smile

Yeah... to pay taxes, one has to work in France.

I shouldn't pay taxes...

For me, it means being in front of my computer at the office, hidden from my boss by a 21 inches screen, and spend all the day on A.net forum or/and uploading ventilators planes pictures on A.net

Speaking of Milage Runs - What IS the fastest / most economic way to earn miles fq. status? (in the u.s.)?


cockpit? it's that little room in the front of the plane where the pilots seat.. but that's not important now
