I had a problem. Actually, it was a problem shared by thousands of people who, like me, have thousands of frequent flyer miles awarded for years of putting up with the challenges of business travel. It used to be relatively easy to take advantage of these miles.
I have always loved and been interested in transportation, especially airlines. When I was 6 months old, I took my first flight from Westchester (HPN) to Minneapolis (MSP) to visit family. Then and still now, every time a plane takes off, chills run down my spine. As I got older, I began playing Microsoft Flight Simulator, flying virtual planes and routes around the world in my free time.
Miles Ahead was founded four years ago when I was a sophomore in high school. We are a high-end travel advisory firm; we help our clients optimize miles and credit card and hotel points and turn them into free airfare. We design experiences around the world and give our clients the high-end treatment. We’ll do anything from planning a 17-day African safari to a honeymoon to getting someone from New York to L.A. tomorrow night using only points.
