Win Tickets to "Up in the Air" and Get Your Frequent-Flyer Problems Solved in our FlyerTalk Challenge

upintheair_pp.jpgI've got an early holiday gift for ten lucky readers: Free tickets to a December 1 New York City sneak preview of Paramount's "Up in the Air," starring George Clooney. 

Any self-respecting mileage junkie will relate to this movie, which is about "a corporate downsizing expert (Clooney) whose cherished life on the road is threatened just as he is on the cusp of reaching ten million frequent flyer miles."

Not only are we giving away ten pairs of tickets to the movie screening but, in keeping with the spirit of the film, we're also going to solve your most frustrating frequent-flyer-mile problems. 

Just tell us the biggest dilemma you face when it comes to using your miles and points. Maybe you can never find any award seats to Hawaii. Maybe you're having trouble using your miles for a business-class upgrade to Asia. Maybe you want to know which is the best miles- or points-earning credit card. Whatever your question is, post it here on truth.travel. I'll pick my ten favorite questions, and the readers who wrote them will be our ten contest winners. Here's the best part: The ten winners will have their questions answered by none other than the world's leading expert on frequent-flyer programs, FlyerTalk founder Randy Petersen, and his team of mileage magicians over at Boarding Area. Plus you'll win a free pair of tickets to the movie screening.

Post your question in the comment space here by noon Eastern Time on Wednesday, Nov. 25.  That's the day before Thanksgiving, folks.  I'll then choose the ten dilemmas that are the most common, the most puzzling, the most infuriating, or simply the ones we can learn the most from. I'll post the list of winners that evening. Then, starting Tuesday, Dec. 1, we'll reveal the FlyerTalk experts' answers to the top ten questions.  

And if you can't make it to New York for the screening, you can always give the tickets to one of your friends in NYC as an early holiday gift, right?
