When Johnny Jet was 18, he was terrified of flying. He had a bad case of anxiety that made it difficult to get out of his home. Then, he met a girl who wanted him to go to Hong Kong with her. So, he talked his dad into buying him a cheap business class fare. The freedom of new experience in tandem with earning frequent flyer miles changed his life. He became addicted to traveling with miles. Today, he's one of the biggest authorities in airfare deals while being featured on CNN, Travel Channel, BBC Travel, Travel and Leisure, and many other major publications.
