    Nicholas Kralev, the former Washington Times diplomacy reporter who also wrote a weekly travel column (and who is especially known in frequent flyer circles for ‘breaking’ the story publicly about United’s Starnet blocking, proactively programming their computers to tell customers that award seats were unavailable on their partners when those partners were actually offering seats, so that Mileage Plus wouldn’t have to pay for the awards), has a new book out, Decoding Air Travel.

    I’m reading through it now, it looks to be really excellent so far and offers some of the most extensive step-by-step tutorials I’ve seen on identify the lowest airfares and constructing itineraries to get those fares and also find and secure confirmable upgrades. I plan to post a full review once I’m through, which should be in the next several days (I hope!).

    At least I commit to reading the entire thing by next Wednesday, since there’s a book launch party at the Arts Club of DC at 7pm on Wednesday, June 29. The event is open to the public, but advance registration is required.

    I’ll be at the event and I look forward to meeting any Milepoint members in the area who can make it, and toasting Kralev on the success of his new book.

    Consistent with the theme of discount air travel, I asked if I could get a code to bring down the price of the book, and managed to secure V9S696JF for 25% off valid here.

    Post here if you're able to join!

    Not in DC for the signing but will look for the book as I'm almost as addicted to travel books as I am to travel!
