When it’s easy to burn your miles and points for free $25,000 First Class tickets and why those who only fly First Class are not snobs.
Airlines used to release lots of seats for travel 330-ish days in advance. As such, travelers came to rely on this, essentially becoming “trained” by the airlines over the years to expect lots of advance notice availability.
In most cases, this is a concept of the past—as we rarely see the same volume of availability a year out that we used to. But, rest assured—we do have one top airline with a hot First Class cabin that bucks the trend, on four hidden routes.
