I really want to start recording people outside of America but need financial help to make it happen. Transferring frequent flyer miles would be a big, big help as airfare is pretty expensive.
There are three major airline alliances I belong to that allow you to transfer them. Transfer is the term most use since I am not a non-profit. When it’s a non-profit they usually call it donating and if you’re buying miles to give to someone they call that gifting miles.
You can transfer miles to the podcast by logging into the website of the airline that contains the miles you want to transfer from. If you’re not registered on their website yet you might have to do that. Having a FF account doesn’t automatically register you on their website. (you might also be able to do all of this over the phone).
It’s really simple and straight forward once you’re logged in. This is all the info you need.
My Name:Paul Gilmartin
My Frequent Flyer # (I’ve listed them below for each alliance)

I don’t think it matters if your miles are from another airline as long as both our accounts are within the same alliance.
