Avoid Alpha Flight Guru or be stranded somewhere and pay the price!

ALPHA FLIGHT GURU is a company that sells discounted Business and First Class plane tickets out of San Bruno, CA, although it is also based in Australia. At first glance it appears to be a reputable company with very helpful staff. And yes, it is always satisfying to feel as if one is finding a great deal on a flight! BUYER BEWARE! Although it may work out if your travel plans run smoothly, i.e, no delays or other complications...but if not, you may realize that you are TRAVELING ON THE RESOLD MILEAGE OF OTHERS WHICH IS ILLEGAL. DO NOT BUY TICKETS FROM THIS COMPANY ! I was stranded overseas and had to pay out an additional $1000 over budget and come home early due to the illegal activities of this company which I was too naive to realize at time of purchase! They will continue in business because there is no active monitoring agency for this behavior. It happens on a case by case basis when discovered by the airlines. It may or may not be you but why risk it?
The airlines do not care enough to monitor this activity. I had a terrible experience
and costly one in the past year. There are other companies like this one in existence.
Everyone working for them seems cordial, charming and efficient, and who doesn't like a good deal? BUYER BEWARE! If it seems too good to be true perhaps it is?
