This is perhaps my favorite topic to talk about.

So - British Airways recently just revealed their new partner airlines award chart, and it's applicable to award flights on Oneworld Alliance excluding those on British Airways' own metal. While it was frustrating for yet another devaluation of a major mileage currency, this one certainly came rather mild, and luckily, British Airways remains a rather competitive option for booki...

Lufthansa Miles & More has been my primary mileage program for my whole life (literally my parents signed me up for a card when I was a toddler). It's the mileage program for Lufthansa (well - as you can see), a member of the Star Alliance. Although known for incredibly high surcharges, Lufthansa Miles & More has a mixed reputation, but it definitely has a few "sweet spots" in their system, and that is what I will show you on...

How much is a point or mile worth? The answer varies with the programs one chooses to participate in. Mileage is a type of currency - some reward points are for sure worth more than others; while some are like the Rupiah of the wondrous world of reward programs (looking at you - Delta...).

There are 2 main categories of points I am going to discuss: credit card points and airline miles. These valuations are based on what I...

Really really analyze the seat maps of  the potential airlines you are flying to get a general overview of the best seating you may get. Remember that seats can vary widely even across the offerings of the same airline (depending on flight equipment - 737, 787, A350 etc.)!

Take a look at SeatGuru for seat pitches of different aircrafts before booking! It's a very u...

I was in Taipei visiting my family and on the way back at Taipei Taoyuan Airport, these fares got on my radar. Luckily, I was able to snatch one for our summer visit back to Asia before it got pulled... See for yourself...

Mistake fares are just what they sound like. For one reason or another, airlines sometimes sell tickets at a cheaper price than they intended. If you see a plane ticket that looks too good to be true, it...

The Oneworld Alliance  is my favorite of the airline alliances.

Reasons? Great airlines, good programs, excellent benefits.

Before we go deeper into Oneworld, here are some basics about alliances.

The goal of an alliance is to make it easier for travelers to standardize benefits in a group of airlines. Once you fly enough with a single airline in the alliance and earn status, that status would be matched to an alliance status so...
