About Me

Hi, my name is Harry Thomas, and welcome to my blog, Forward of the Wing!

I started Forward of the Wing to help our readers utilise unique travel booking hacks to book premium travel experiences for less than the cost of economy using airline miles. My aim is to empower you, the reader, with the information to book those once in a lifetime holidays with your loved ones. Whether it is a special occasion such as a honeymoon or anniversary, or just your standard family holiday, make it extra special by upgrading your loved one, or family, to premium economy, business class or even first class.

I have flown with airline miles and credit card points around the world for the last nine years. I hold elite status with Star Alliance and oneworld, and will hopefully hold elite status with SkyTeam soon. I fly alot. 2022, I flew 24 flights. Last year, I have flown 29 flights. Mainly utilizing airline miles and credit card points, 10 of those flights last year were in Business Class, and two more flights in Premium Economy. I love travelling and flying, and all things aviation. My hope is by reading this blog, you share that passion for aviation and I can help make your next trip just that little bit more special.

I want to share my unique insights, recommendations and thoughts with you all. The good, bad and the ugly. Everything from premium flights worthy of your hard earned airline miles, the airport lounges you should purposefully book a long layover for, the airline mile and credit card point earning strategies that work, what to do on a stopover, and the flight redemptions and airport lounges you should avoid. Once you fly Forward of the Wing, you’ll never want to fly Economy again!

But this blog isn’t meant to be a one-way discussion about me and my experiences! Please comment below my articles with your thoughts, experiences and insights, or email me at [email protected]. I want to hear about your travels and travel hacks!
