Mining for Miles Availability: 10 Common Mistakes Most Travelers Make

Skyrocket your mining success for mileage award availability by looking for smaller veins to exploit

Amid the relentless challenges of covid, many people will increasingly become anxious to get away from home. So let’s be positive and keep our sights set on the reality that we will be traveling again at some point in the future. And while you do that, we’ll continue to mitigate a common annoyance for you: finding award space in premium cabins.

Mileage award tickets are currently FCF’s favorite way of booking premium tickets. That’s thanks to the unprecedented availability we’re seeing on a number of routes right now. And on top of that, the risk of booking with miles is low because you can redeposit your mileage ticket for as little as $30 to $150, or change your ticket for just $25 to $150. Plus some airlines, including American, Delta, and United, currently have no change or redeposit fees for mileage award tickets.
