With less than two weeks to go as a part of Skyteam, the time is ticking if you want to redeem for a Skyteam award.
Changing alliances has a bit of confusion surrounding it. The biggest point of confusion is that some people believe they have to fly their Skyteam award by 10/24/09, which is the day Continental leaves Skyteam. Not true, your award just needs to be ticketed by that date.
What does that mean? You can book an award for up to 330 days out (this is the furthest out a airline reservation can be). So if you want to book a trip for the spring or summer on Skyteam, now is the time.
So if you wanted to book that trip to Tahiti, now would be the time.
