Check out my weekly column over at This week I answer some more reader questions about the best premium economy products out there, how to redeem bump vouchers, and much more.


  1. Hi I was reading your answer that you complete mileage runs so that you can upgrade your family to go to Germany. But can you give me an estimate on how much I would have to spend on mileage runs per year to get to your level?

    I don’t currently buy tickets. I just wait until I get miles from credit card promos so I try to spend zero to $100 per year on flights and hotels. But I don’t get any status like you have and elite qualifying miles. If I wanted to start doing your strategy how much would I need to spend in mileage run deals in order to get status each year?
