  1. Speaking of Avios I was finding to very difficult to find JFK to TXL (through AirBerlin) on the BA website. I have a large number of Avios miles I would like to use on Iberia, Air Berlin or Air Lingus to avoid fuel surcharges. Do you recommend I use a booking award service to find business class availability to one of those cities? I am open to going to Berlin, Madrid, or Dublin from NY and looking for business class availability over Thanksgiving or the last 2 weeks of December. Is this a search you think I can do on my own or should I pay the $150 a ticket a service like AwardMagic charges?

  2. The Brits are shutting down all of RT’s bank accounts. No doubt the Avios devaluation follows. Get on RT quick Gary!

  4. Melissa, what does RT stand for? Can you explain your comment above? I don’t understand what you are saying.
