Anyone heard or used this group for discounted business and/or first class travel? Are they legit?

To repeat an earlier post, their business model is built on violating airline terms and conditions. Doesn't mean you can't get a ticket at a discount, just know that you risk having your ticket cancelled without warning if the airline should find out.

Not sure what scare mongering you're referring to. Can you find a single post where somebody claimed they were violating any laws? On the contrary, it has been pointed out numerous times that what they are doing is NOT illegal, but that it is against airline T&C. That obviously means you'll be taking a chance that the airline doesn't find out what you're doing. If you want to take that chance it's fine by me but at least people should be made that it's there.

this reminds me of an earlier thread. Yes, something's fishy.

The company may purchase ticket using frequent flyer miles. This may contradict the arrlines' rules. So what? The real question is the vehemence, the virtiol of the detractors on the thread. Why are they so angry and concerned about it? Are there some on this site who are trolling for the airlines or for travel agents who stand to lose because of this business?

So the airline will cancel your ticket if they find out.

from experince, I don't think it happens as often as you'd like everyone to believe. And what do you care if they do? Why such a vested interest? On whose behalf are you speaking?

I don't recall ever saying how often it happens? I personally don't care since I would never use AFG but feel others that may not know better should better should be made aware of the potential risk (since AFG don't bother to mention it). I've got no vested interest, as I said in earlier post, if people want to buy from them it's fine by me.

Why are *you* so upset that people explain their business model?
