Wondering if anyone has salient advice except to not do it. A forum search here turned up nothing. Am seeking "how to" advice.
I understand and subscribe to the dogma of booking direct with the airline when at all possible. And I realize that using bitcoin will involve an intermediary, thereby making it de facto less safe.
I would rather not get into a heated discussion of the merits of bitcoin per se, since I already have a few that I would like to use while they are worth more than the amount I initially paid.
Internet searching turned up www.abitsky.com, an online travel agent which purports to sell air tickets for bitcoin. I try to avoid OTA's on general principle, even the big ones. Furthermore, I have determined that this company is based in Estonia and Lithuania, which is far from ideal in terms of having any recourse if things didn't go well. And, to make matters worse, I'm unable to find much in the way of actual user reviews.
So, being aware of the perils of going any further along the bitcoin road, I'm still wondering if anyone has relevant experience. If so, thanks in advance. If not, I will just consider this kind of "thinking out loud."
