Finally, the economics from YOUR standpoint: Just how much are you going to value that free ticket if you find that there are no seats you can book with it for any of the destinations you were intersted in at any of the times you can actually go? (The more people that participate in this, the more likely that is to happen, especially during popular times of year, but of course it will depend a lot on where you want to go, when you want to go, and how far ahead you decide all that.) It's quite possible that it's worth even less than $700 if it has even more capacity controls than a $700 cash fare! (In particular, if you can't actually use it, isn't it worth about $0 to you? Now, it's one thing if you got this award for making a couple flights you would have made ANYWAY, and you can't use the award. )
