Bruno grew up in Asia and recently moved back to the Netherlands to attend Law School. He is half Chilean and half Dutch, but Asian at heart. He’s the son of a pilot and former flight attendant – so flying is in his blood! Bruno tries to travel as much as possible in his free time, and preferably in business or first class using miles.
When he was 16, he discovered Boarding Area and FlyerTalk, a community that shared his passion for traveling. He learned that there was no need to fly Economy Class anymore and that there is great value in points and miles. This year he’s already flown 84.000 miles in Business or First Class. For Bruno, the journey is just as important as the destination.
His goal for the next year is to fly the business class and first class products of every 5-star Skytrax rated airline! He will go out of his way to fly an airline he’s never tried before, even if that means making many stopovers.
His favorite loyalty programs are LifeMiles and AAdvantage, because they offer so many redemption possibilities for a great value! His favorite award that he has booked to date, is London to Abu Dhabi in the Etihad First Class Apartment on their beautiful A380. He now writes for Ikvliegveel.com, where he shares his journeys in the air and his loyalty program strategies.
Faculty Factoid: Bruno actually loves flying airlines from the United States in premium cabins, solely because it means he’ll get a chocolate sundae for dessert!
