I have been a passive member of FlyerTalk for a couple of years but have always found it too detailed and technical for my needs. This site seems a lot more mid-level FF friendly, I look forward to trying it out. One recurring query I have from FlyerTalk that I have not been able to grasp is the ridiculously low tax + mileage prices people are paying for business or first redemptions. I have 100,000 miles on BD (soon to die...) and would need to pay 60k miles + £300 for a flight in business or 40k miles + £240 for a seat in economy. People frequently post about virtual round-the-world trips in business for 17,5k + £150, to give a rough example. Or the following: "BKK-AUH-PRG-FRA-PRG-AUH-BKK is bookable for 373 Euro Okt 2012 booked and etix issued" What trick am I missing?
