    were these direct flights or with stops? peak season or low season? did you redeem 4x business tickets or did you purchase economy and then upgrade?

    Lol.

    1. Those miles (US 1.7 - 2c or whatever) are expensive.
    2. Miles are liable to be confiscated by AM (or whatever program) with zero recourse to you.

    There are much better ways (and in line with the T&C) to go about this.

    I will mention 2 things. Lifemiles and Alaska Airlines. But discussing this topic is not really the subject of this forum.

    .
    I've used services that sold discounted F tickets with miles quite a lot, never had any issues.

    All good as long as you can be flexible with travel dates (to find award availability) and can take the risk of having the airline confiscate them for violating the program terms...
