Flight Strategy

Flight Strategy

  1. JollyRodgers

    Hi Lucky, Often it is a better price strategy to book a round trip in another country (Business Class start – finish) and then buy another round trip ticket (economy) to bookend the other round trip. The round trip (Business Class) stops in the country where live in. Obviously I cannot get on board in the middle of a RT Business Class) flight. Hence my flying to the country where the Business class RT starts via economy. But on my way back, the Business Class) stops in the country where I live. Can I just get off the plane there, and not continue the Business Class to the starting point. This is just if I had carry on and no checked baggage. They would obviously miss me on the roster and see if I had checked baggage. Is this just asking for a bag of hurt? Obviously my passport would be stamped etc…

    Welcome [USER=2706]@JollyRodgers[/USER] – if I follow your example, you’re asking about nested flights and dropping the final leg. Yes, you can do that *occasionally* and still earn miles. But if the airline begins to see a pattern they may not award you miles or drop you from the program altogether.
