    spend about £20,000 every year on travel mainly from London (Business Class), my company has offices in KL, Singapore, Lagos and Nairobi. However I met a guy last month in Singapore who said to me he flew LHR to SIN return for £900 and I paid over £3000 and we both flew on Air France. He said he has a Travel Agent that books all his flights using airmiles. He won't disclose to me his agent and how he does it - I have been searching online eversince and actually spoken to several travel agencies no one seem to know how this guy does it, can anyone here help.

    Mileage brokers buy points (generally against the T&C of the programs) and book tickets with them. If they get caught the tix can be voided.

    Also, it is not all that uncommon for different passengers on the plane to pay different rates, though that spread is rather wide.

    A three to one difference really isn't that bad. Says the man normally on the high end of the difference.
