Trip Report Index

It was nice for all of us to travel to India using miles and points.  This trip wasn’t perfectly planned in the beginning since we had 2 to 3 stopovers on the way back, but United opened up seats on their non-stop flight from Delhi to Newark which made for a much better journey home!

Here’s what’s up for grabs:

  • One British Airways Airbus A380 model plane, one British Airways amenity kit, and one Elephant Company puzzle coaster
  • One jeweled Indian purse, One Craft House auto rickshaw, and one British Airways amenity kit
  • One IndiGo children’s plane, one Bombay House clutch purse, and one Taj Mahal magnet
  • One set of Bombay Store coasters, one packet of incense, and one IndiGo Super Model plane
  • One Craft House auto rickshaw, one IndiGo Airbus A320 model plane, and one jeweled purse
