    Love your blog, always fun to click and see where you are at today. I have a quick question about using AVIOS for travel on Alaska/US Air/American. If I book tickets, what is the fee and penalty for canceling the trip? Thanks in advance and safe travels.

    @ Mike -- The fee is $55. That being said, if you can cancel the ticket online then you can actually forfeit the taxes and you get your Avios back, which would be cheaper than paying the change fee on most domestic itineraries.
