Hi Vanessa and welcome to FT!

I agree with what what Sweet Willie said. Spending some time poking around and defining your travel goals will help you get maximum benefit from membership here. That as you gain experience you will be able to help others.

When I first joined my goals were maximizing the travel experience on multiple trans-Atlantic flights I was anticipating over the next few months. FT was priceless in learning about lounges and upgrades and priority lines etc.

Now my goals have shifted and I am focused on premium cabin flights to new and exotic places. FT has helped me maximize earning points and miles. I have been so successful that I am taking my family of five to Thailand on points and miles over Christmas/New Years flying up front. For the 12 days we will be in Thailand I am paying for 1 night of hotels and one connecting flight for a stop over.

Read, learn the lingo and as you develop specific questions ask. FTers are great folks and will always answer informed questions.
