We are thrilled to announce that the next FTU Advanced will be held at the gorgeous Hyatt Regency Mission Bay hotel in San Diego from March 6-8, 2015. Over two days, our five experts will share their extensive knowledge of how to earn, book, and travel like a pro on both revenue and reward tickets. FTU Advanced features a small-group setting, allowing our experts to go far beyond the basics, and Q&A sessions with each speaker will give all participants an opportunity to engage at a high level to discuss complex issues and address your most difficult questions. Topics will include the following general areas: — Award Booking on American Airlines — Award Booking on United Airlines — Award Booking on Other Airlines (Delta, Alaska, Avios, etc.) — Using KVS Tool & Expert Flyer to Search for Fares and Availability (fare construction) — Maximize your spending (beyond Bluebird) — Maximizing Hotel Loyalty Programs and Promotions — Visas, OTAs, Car Rentals, ATMs, and More Tips for International Travel — Advanced booking techniques for revenue tickets What’s included?
