  1. If only I hadn’t already booked all my trips for this year! Would have been a solid opportunity to earn some SkyMiles (am I the only one who hasn’t given up on the program entirely?)

  2. Booked my tickets on Feb 3 (good thing too, because ticket prices went up by $600 the next day), but only saw this promotion on Feb 5. I’ve registered for it just now, but wonder if the tickets I bought on Feb 3 will qualify for this promotion? My travel dates are within the travel period.
