This one has got me irked. I've been saving miles on Continental for the past two years to get to 200k so that I'd have enough to book two first class to the UK. I had miles coming to me since november that they only just credited after much dialog and a letter. Now, i've just topped my number and try to book tix to Whitby for April- and there are no seats in that fare class- i'll need 400k for both of us. Grrr! In looking at online reservations that's understandable- the discount fares have not clicked for anything past march, so I think I'll wait until later in February to try again.
I want free first class, dammit! I've just flown 200k miles and boy are my arms tired!
