As has become somewhat of a tradition, the March reset of my Tier Points is as good a time as any to look back over the last year of flying and to look forward to what the next year might bring.

It struck me the other day that, with the purchase of flights for Christmas 2018, I have… Read More I’ve just spent my millionth Avios!
