You may be flying to a lot of destinations, but it stays meaningless if you’re not registered to the frequent flyer program of an airline. A lot of airlines are going to convince you with this. This is correct on many grounds. These loyalty programs bring out a lot of benefits for the frequent flyers. From free flights, priority boarding, upgrades to the business class and a lot more perks, frequent flyer programs are very attractive for travelers these days.
To add to it, inspiring stories of mileage maestros who have excelled at collecting miles and traveled the world for free have made it even more tempting. But are airlines actually that generous in letting you enjoy these perks for free? Here are some of the ways in which these programs might actually be a scam!

1.      Limited Options
You may find countless options of earning air miles. Great for you! However, redemption is totally another story. A lot of airlines are very limited when it comes to the redemption options. The free flights and upgrades would be available, but that is offered on very limited flights.
To avail these offers at the best, you’d have to be very flexible with your plans. Airlines would not show much flexibility when it comes to passengers benefitting from their offers.

2.      Very Few Enjoy the Perks
One of the biggest ways in which the frequent flyer programs are flawed is that very few travelers actually get to enjoy the perks these programs claim. This is why these programs are more of a pyramid style. Only the limited travelers at the top of the pyramid actually benefit from the perks offered by the airlines. These are the elite members, who have dedicated a lot of their time and efforts to collect the pool of air miles. They are the ones who enjoy the best of everything, get easy access to the world class lounges and fly in luxury.
However, most of the loyal members are only struggling endlessly and can only wish to get there. Crammed in the economy class, life isn’t the same for them despite being frequent flyers. Before you fall for the tempting programs and invest your efforts there, know that there is a long way to go to reach to the top and avail the attractive offers.

3.      Terms and Conditions
The trouble is that most of the travelers fail to read the fine print before they end up opting for something. To select a frequent flyer program is often very challenging for the beginners. For this to be in your best interest, you must read the terms and conditions thoroughly and know exactly what you are opting for. If you fail to look into these terms and conditions, be prepared to miss out on the free flights and upgrades.

There are plenty of people who have gained a lot through these frequent flyer programs. You might be one of them if you choose to spend your miles wisely!
