« on: June 17, 2008, 01:01:54 AM »
I'm flying with a few friends on a continental flight soon, the flights are already paid for, they don't care for or want the miles, is there anyway i can get their miles (they dont have onepass accounts yet)

the same address doesnt help because you cant transfer the miles, let your friends collect the miles they may not need them now but you never know

Even if your dad was flying he would not get a free upgrade on an international flight to Israel as a gold member
