Matthew Bennett and his travel tip sheet – today – led to our nabbing two business class seats on KLM to Nairobi for a thousand dollars less – each – than our fare to Berlin two months ago. That’s incredible. I’ve read Matthew Bennett’s advice for years and it turns out that the first time you use it, it pays off.
By the time people find fares like these on FlyerTalk they usually can’t book them anymore. I never could. But this time KLM matched the sale fare, we’ll get our Delta miles and a side visit to Toronto besides.
Therefore, we hereby put a pending British Airways ticket for August back in the bank, and we’ll go dark on travel from now until November, with a big Africa thing happening then. Then next March it’s up to 800 miles south of the North Pole for an eclipse.
The view is good from here.
