<<Since you guys know a lot about how these programs work, let me ask you a question. I'll be traveling a lot in the next year as a consultant, and in many cases, the company I'm doing business with will buy the tickets. Is there any way I can get frequent flier miles for those tickets?>>

Hi, ajit!

Many companies that buy their employees airline tickets allow them to keep the frequent flier miles. The first thing you should do is verify that that's the case with you.

Then, just enroll with the airline. You can even do that while you're on the plane. They always have the forms available.

My one suggestion is to see if you can choose the airlines on which you fly. For example, if you can do your flying on American, those miles will add up faster. Of course, you can enroll with all of the carriers on which you fly.

Good luck!

...but I still am...
