Welcome to BizPassenger.com! This website is designed for
the business traveler and those who might also be frequent
travelers for personal reasons. Our site began because there
were not other places to go for side by side comparisons of
loyalty programs, or key tips and tricks for both domestic and
Most other sites seem to be just discussion boards with links to

be a steady resource for key information. With that in mind,
please let us know how we can improve.
One key thing to remember, no matter where you are traveling, is
that the staff will always do more for those who make their jobs
easier. I have seen many passengers over the years who were
hostile and demanded special treatment. Rarely have I seen
these passengers prevail, but I have seen some passengers
receive special treatment when they were quiet, polite, and
unassuming. In fact, I always consider my tier status cards to
carry more responsibility than reward. I have a responsibility to
know how things work and use that knowledge to make my trip,
and the trip for the staff much more enjoyable.

make this ruling. Remember, it is
also illegal to disobey your flight
attendant and you can be removed
from the plane.

WHY NOT JUST PURCHASE
THE CHEAPEST FARE?
Often, people do not get the
benefit from loyalty programs
because they fly whichever is the
cheapest airline. This can cost
you a lot more over the course of
time and is not always the
cheapest option in the end. Find
