    And there is a temporary 15% discount on round the world fares from May 15 to May 29

    The sweepstakes is this:

    First prize is Business Class to the festival for 15 people with hotel rooms!

    15 other winners have to make do with economy tickets and hotels

    Anyway the promo runs thru June 14

    Yeah i got this...

    I saw the contest to fly the most Star carriers and the top 15 people win 15k miles. 15 people? 15,000 miles? Thats it? What kind of competition is that! Probably going to have to fly on every airline or close to it.

    And it only counts revenue flights, so having fun with an award ticket (e.g. CLT-IAD-MUC-CPH-WAW-VIE-LJU-IST-PVG-BKK-SIN-HND) won't count.

    At least it is 15 winners from each program. Still pretty pathetic.

    Well, the 15 winners I can almost understand but...for 15,000 miles? Really? That is the big reward for likely having to fly on 22 different carriers? Not even barely half of a US domestic ticket?
