I believe the ads on this site are by google, hence the ads are different for each user.

Without knowing the specific ads, I guess the age old adage remains if it sounds too good to be true...

If you press reply with quote, it will quote the post you are looking to reply to.

Without knowing the specific ad, it is likely to be a site that is on selling frequent flyer miles as cheap business seats. You will find easier ways to fly up front for cheaper here. If you look at Avianca life miles for one is a good start.

Welcome to AFF billthecat Out of interest I submitted a quote request to that site. They came back with a not so competitive cost of around $5400 plus for a Europe J return. As the tickets are paid for by points you will be unable to credit miles to any FF scheme. ie. You will not earn any.

As a comparison for a similar outlay it is possible to buy a retail J fare Europe return on Finnair, sometimes Lufthansa and Air France/KLM and others on which you will also earn FF miles. If flying US return a J seat can be had on Fiji for around this price.

Now if you read the Avianca thread you will learn how to do it for around $3,000.

Its not a good deal, as a miles and status point earning flight can be had for that. If you don't care for miles etc, the knowledge centre will point you in the direction go bringing it down closer to $2000 return.

Welcome to AFF billthecat!

Good luck in your search for cheap business class. It would be much cheaper buying miles directly from airline and using those miles to book the flights.

thanks flyrod, i guess my ignorance showed through....now im up to speed

You're welcome. I wouldn't use the word ignorance though, aviation has about the largest collection of MLA's (IMHO)

Did someone say cheap business class tickets ?? Shut up and take my money !!! :D

That was precisely my first thought when I came across some of those sites, but a bit of investigating, and reading through the topics from these fine AFF members showed me the true way *insert halo/god-like images*

Anyways - welcome to AFF !! Lots of good info here for everyone.......
