Up In The Air / ELAL Updates Website (adds new features)
« on: July 09, 2015, 02:40:38 PM »
Elal finally woke up and added option to add and pay for extra luggage (at a reduced fee in advance) and premium econ/exit row seating on their website after ticketing instead of having to buy the ticket and wait two hours on phone on hold to do this small task.
Makes life easier for a lot of us!

General Discussion / Miles Tax Info

Dunno if anything new mentioned here but this just came out recently

Part IV
Items of General Interest
Frequent Flyer Miles Attributable to Business or Official Travel
Announcement 2002-18
Most major airlines offer frequent flyer programs under which passengers
accumulate miles for each flight.  Individuals may also earn frequent flyer miles
or other promotional benefits, for example, through rental cars or hotels.  These
promotional benefits may generally be exchanged for upgraded seating, free
travel, discounted travel, travel-related services, or other services or benefits.
Questions have been raised concerning the taxability of frequent flyer miles or
other promotional items that are received as the result of business travel and
used for personal purposes.  There are numerous technical and administrative
issues relating to these benefits on which no official guidance has been provided,
including issues relating to the timing and valuation of income inclusions and the
basis for identifying personal use benefits attributable to business (or official)
expenditures versus those attributable to personal expenditures.  Because of
these unresolved issues, the IRS has not pursued a tax enforcement program
with respect to promotional benefits such as frequent flyer miles.
Consistent with prior practice, the IRS will not assert that any taxpayer has
understated his federal tax liability by reason of the receipt or personal use of
frequent flyer miles or other in-kind promotional benefits attributable to the
taxpayer’s business or official travel.  Any future guidance on the taxability of
these benefits will be applied prospectively.
This relief does not apply to travel or other promotional benefits that are
converted to cash, to compensation that is paid in the form of travel or other
promotional benefits, or in other circumstances where these benefits are used for
tax avoidance purposes.
For information regarding this announcement, call (202) 622-4606 (not a toll-free
number).  Alternatively, taxpayers may transmit comments electronically via the
following e-mail address:  Please
