    Frequent Flyer

    Advertisements



    Since I will be doing a lot of flying, I want to maximize frequent flyer points! What is the best frequent flyer card/point system to use for travelling the carribbean? I have aeroplan already, but perhaps you can suggest something better?

    Please and THANKS

    Another thing is to look into the "alliances" that fly to the Caribbean. That way, you have a bunch of airlines to work with as opposed to one. I have miles with Northwest, but I get credit by flying on any Skyteam airlines (including Continental, Delta), while another one to consider is the Star Alliance (which includes US Air/America West). It really depends what is cheap out of your city, and what connections you make most often (some people fly through San Juan, while others go through St. Maarten)

    If I plan on flying through San Jaun during most trips, what is the best 'alliance'? I think it's easier to get a direct flight from Toronto to SJ and then to Nevis

    American Airlines reward program is awesome cuz you can get miles for going out to eat and stuff like that too. Plus they do fly from San Juan (ick I hate that airport!). The only thing that sucks with them is that for most Continental and Trans-Atlantic flights you end up going through Chicago first

    I love my AAdvantage membership even if I do spend way more time in O'hare than I'd like to.

    If you're from the GTA, I'd strongly look into flying out of Buffalo. As for Alliance, I have the Skyteam alliance, and have racked up quite a few miles by choosing to fly on Continental or Delta to San Juan (and they also fly to St. Maarten). So, they cover both gateway airports pretty well.
