Frequent Flier Kung Fu for Novices

Steven Foskett has a great article on travel

I travel a lot. Keep an eye on the event calendar on my blog and you’ll see me show up in dozens of cities every year. Not everyone is such a frequent flyer, but everyone can benefit from a little bit of travel kung fu! Here are my top recommendations for new travelers to make the most of their time away from home.

Get with the Program

Lots of people feel like they can’t benefit from frequent flyer programs because, frankly, they don’t fly all that frequently. While it’s true that “elite” flyers get most of the benefits, it’s foolish to pass up the miles and points.

Sign up for a frequent flyer account with one airline in each of the three global alliances (see below), and use that number whenever possible. You might also consider signing up with independent airlines like Southwest and Alaska just to make sure your miles don’t go to waste.
