Are Belgians doomed?
I just recently crashed on OMAAT to discover and read all those amazing stories you guys encountered in the ‘taking a flight’-game! While I understand the game, in order to enjoy luxury traveling, you’ll have to carefully think about every coin (either dollar or euro) you spend for earning those extra miles! However in a country like Belgium where there are rarely any opportunities to earn extra miles, I was wondering if any of you have some suggestions for increasing the miles or chances for getting a status upgrade. Up till now, I have only discovered the AMEX card (partnership with Brussels Airlines) to earn me a little bit of those precious extra miles. Since I am completely new here (first post), I am curious about how you guys can give some advice in winning this game!
It’s not just Belgians, but most of Europe that is [email protected]$£&d when it comes to the point game.
Unless you have access to US credit cards your best bet would be to buy points from AA and Alaska. More expensive and restrictive than credit card points, but still cheaper than buying a paid F ticket.
