Yes, yes, and with your elite status, you get availability for more buyers. And your listings go to the top of the page.

Monetise miles?? How does that work.
Either sell your miles, or book ppl high-fare tix using your account. That's where the best cpm is.
(Of course it's a risk, and if you have enough $$ and too many miles at risk, it may not be worth it.)

never heard of anything like that here - to sell miles?!  :o

By the way, you could write up trip reports for newspapers. If you have someone to translate it to a female spouse language (add lots of chocolates...), you can publish it in Bina Magazine under a pen name.  ;D

yup;
Mishpacha has used quite a lot of pics that I've taken.

I know someone who did that - the opposite, and just used first initial instead of name.
