Anyone Have First Hand Experience?
Have any of you ever used Gary Leff at www.BookYourAward.com for assistance with booking airline award seats?
I thought this was an interesting article in the NYT Travel Section:
Frequent Flier Pros to the Rescue - NYTimes.com
I have exchanged emails with Gary several times in the past and have found his observations interesting as well as creative. I have yet to actually use his service.
However, we are starting to discuss some ideas for 2013 travel. Although we usually manage to nail down our award seats without too much trouble, a couple of the destinations we have on our radar appear to be a bit more complicated and may require assistance from someone such as Gary or Matthew Klint at www.Upgrd.com
Normally I wouldn't want to pay the extra $150 these guys change, but if they can come up with the seats (one leg involves BIZ or FIRST on a long-haul Thai Airways A-380-800), plus an extended stop-over in a certain city....well, who knows, it's only money.
Anyone used them?
