frequent flyer miles

I have enuf on both Delta & Continental for a free flight. however I've spent too much of my evening attempting to use them & all to no avail. the flights I want are "unavailable." so what good are these miles?

i agree. i have thousands of miles myself. when living back in wi. i could get flights for 25ooo miles here in vegas any flight i looked up were 50ooo miles. i guess they don't have problems filling flights to and from vegas, go figure.

I've had pretty good luck with free flights, especially at the last minute, although not always. Whenever I fly and I have the miles, I check for award flights first, then pay if there are no good free flights.

I flew on US Air for years and piled up 950,000 miles. For the past few years I've been using them up (often with great difficulty), but I'm finally down to just one international flight. But my Air France miles are creeping up to 200,000...
