Anyone know if you can use enough frequent flyer miles to get tickets that have "open" travel dates? We're going to have an emergency trip at some point, and we have a butt-load of frequent flyer miles that'd be nice to use (other than for business, we rarely fly).

Thanks.

I believe that most airlines don't allow an open travel date on a frequent flyer ticket. In the past, they allowed one to change the date without charge and only charged for a change of destinations/routing. But I believe that is probably not the case any more.

Actually, Southwest Airlines allws you to book the frequent flyer flights as OW flights so you can use them when YOU want to use them. And unlike the "major" legacy airlines, they generally have seats available.
