Best Ways To Use United Miles

When it comes to domestic airline frequent flyer programs, it’s hard to argue with the value presented by United’s MileagePlus program.

Aeroflot Award Space Bookable on, Wide Open to Russia This Summer

Aeroflot flights are now bookable on with Delta SkyMiles. The Russian carrier flies from New York, Los Angeles, Washington DC, and Miami to Moscow and throughout Russia and Europe.

This is the seventh SkyMiles partner that has been added to in 2015.

Award space is excellent on Aeroflot's flights in economy to Moscow this summer, and award space is good in Business Class on the New York route. Aeroflot's Business Class features flat beds.

A System to Get to Europe with Delta SkyMiles

I use three steps to get to my European destination with Delta SkyMiles. For each direction:

Find transatlantic space.
Find domestic space within the US on Delta or Alaska from my home airport to the international gateway.
Find intra-European space to my destination.

Those steps are roughly in order of difficulty--though many times finding domestic space on Delta is impossible at the low-miles price.
