#1 Join the airline loyalty program(s) If you know you’re going to be shuttling around one particular region for a while and/or using a particular airline for more than one flight, it is often well worth joining that airline’s rewards/miles programs (particularly if it’s a Middle-eastern or Asian airline).
Doing this often makes you more likely to receive upgrades, better online seating options and preferential treatment (however minor!) when you fly with that airline. It took us less than a year including 1 business class round trip (great value route which I’ve shared in the forum) and a couple of single economy flights to get enough points for a free return flight back to the UK from Dubai, plus reaching Silver status with the Emirates Skywards program
#2 Find the discount airlines Not sure which budget airlines fly the route you’re looking for? Air Ninja lists all budget and discount airlines that fly the route you’re looking for.
#3 Pick the best airline If you’re searching for fares and you get a choice between Macedonian Airlines or Air Algerie and have no idea which airline to go for, use the Airline Quality site to check out the airline first.
