Million Mile Secrets reader, Robert, commented:

Hello Daraius!  Could you do a post or list here all of the airlines that don’t assess fuel surcharges for award tickets?  Thanks for all that you do.

What site can I go to to know what hotel or airline accepts transferred points/miles from other hotels or airlines?

Thank you.
