Upgrd Podcast 19: Genius

This week we are joined by Gary Leff, Flytalk Talkboard President, and View From The Wing blog writer. During this week's frequent flyer podcast we discuss Gary's just completed five carrier Star Alliance first class award. In addition, we banter about:

  • FlyerTalk TalkBoard and why Gary and Ben participate
  • Matthew's unlucky win
  • Viewer mail including award booking on American to Europe, and award booking tools to Europe for Delta
  • A brief discussion on Avis and Hertz's elite renter programs. Let us know what car rental program you use and we'll cover it in an upcoming episode
  • And, as always, Hunter questions the existence of life, the universe, and being a Delta elite

Regarding the question on using AA miles to fly to Europe...I believe you could use them on Finnair to take their JFK-HEL flights. Their J product is good.
