Welcome to DC!

The next edition of our FTU Advanced series will be held at the gorgeous Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Washington, DC from December 5-7, 2014.

Over two days, our experts will share their extensive knowledge of how to earn, book, and travel like a pro on both revenue and reward tickets with the 150 attendees.

This event is geared to travelers who have previously attended a Frequent Traveler University event, or who are already fairly familiar with the basics of maximizing their reward and revenue travel.

The small group setting will allow our experts to delve beyond the basics, and Q&A sessions with each speaker will give all participants an opportunity to engage at a high level to discuss complex issues and address your most difficult questions.

Topics will include the following general areas:

— Award Booking on American Airlines
— Award Booking on United Airlines
— Award Booking on Other Airlines (Delta, Alaska, Avios, etc.)
— Using KVS Tool & Expert Flyer to Search for Fares and Availability (fare construction)
— Maximize your spending (beyond Bluebird)
— Maximizing Hotel Loyalty Programs and Promotions
— Visas, OTAs, Car Rentals, ATMs, and More Tips for International Travel
— Advanced booking techniques for revenue tickets

What’s included?

Your ticket gives you access to all sessions and social events, including an open bar cocktail reception on Friday night, and breakfast and lunch on both Saturday and Sunday.


Our host for this weekend is the Hyatt Regency Crystal City. We look forward to taking advantage of the many amenities afforded at this beautiful Arlington, Virginia, property conveniently located near Reagan National Airport.

We have negotiated a group rate at the hotel of $99 per night for single/double occupancy.
