Advice about best frequent flyer miles programs to get airline upgrades from a source you can trust

Ten strategies for using the best frequent flyer miles programs comes to you from Matthew J. Bennett, publisher of the First Class Flyer London Flight Guide and First Class Flyer newsletter.

Talk to a few dozen Business and First Class travelers a week and you quickly discover the challenges they face. Do it for more than a decade, as Matt has, and you become an expert at helping them surmount those challenges.

That’s the unique opportunity Matt has had through editing First Class Flyer, now in its 10th year. He sees close-up the problems and pitfalls you face in traveling for business.

Increasingly they come down to two things: Getting value for the money you pay and the loyalty you show, and making the experience of flying as pleasant as possible in an age when airline seats are all but a commodity.

Matt has been tracking down airfare deals since his days as a minor league pitcher for the Kansas City Royals. His specialty was uncovering bargain fares for teammates, which eventually earned him the sobriquet “the guy who doesn’t pay retail for anything,” and made him the most popular guy in the clubhouse.

Since then, “Mr. Upgrade” has gained a reputation as the leading authority on Business and First Class air travel, serving his readers and his corporate clients by advising them how to travel in style without spending a fortune.

Matt is consulted regularly by top publications including the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, Condé Nast Traveler and other media including CNN, NBC, and FOX News.
