Finally free!

This was my first booking after being demoted to silver last spring. I booked us (my wife and me) a return trip for a few days in Athens in about a couple of weeks with... Volotea, saving more than 55% when compared to what I would have paid if I did this like during my previous life. I'm now looking forward to booking our first international flight next month with God knows which airline, again without caring about miles, coupons, lounges, etc., only price and schedule.
fifty_two, the810, romans and 6 others like this.

No, I couldn't: I was... collecting miles! Now I have a different problem: ~450000 miles with FB, ~300000 with M+B, but I prefer staying home to staying in a hotel on a different continent! And thanks for your kind words, though wishing me only a few flights!
