Poll: Are Frequent Flyer Award Seats Now Easier to Get?

This should be an ideal time to cash in your frequent flyer miles for a free flight.

As a result of the global economic downturn, demand for travel has plummeted. So the airlines have plenty of empty seats. And common sense suggests that they should be opening up those seats for award travel.

But is that what’s actually happening?

To find out, we’re asking our readers to take a brief survey about recent experiences redeeming frequent flyer miles. Was it easier than a year ago? More difficult? We’ll compile the results and report back next month with our findings.
