I’ve purchased miles for trips before, but only in specific situations?
How do you know when it is worth it to buy miles?
We have a guide here. The alliance is different, but the math is the same.
Miles are also worth it if you would like to stop somewhere on your way to your final destination.
Now, please note. I was on a pun kick when I wrote those guides. You’ve been warned.
