An introduction to Milenomics

Milenomics is: The study of points and miles.  A key component of Milenomics is going to be knowing both your travel needs and your limitations.

An example of travel needs:

  • Too tall to comfortably fly coach (or injury/age concerns)
  • Need to be in XYZ on exactly Jan 15, 2015.
  • The opposite of the above: I have to be to back to work by a certain day.

Some examples of personal travel limitations are:

  • Time off: How flexible is your employer about time off?
  • Size of travel party: Are you booking for yourself, you +1? you +3?
  • Budget: Even “free” flights and hotels don’t mean a free trip.  What is your budget?
