Looking for a fun spot to use your United Mileage Plus miles? Does Baghdad sound good? I mean, everyone says the so-called Surge has made it safe there, right? Certainly you can travel there no problem. And if you have 40,000 Mileage Plus miles you can go there for free: Turkish Airlines announced that it will begin 3-day-a-week service to Baghdad beginning at the end of October. For some reason, Iraq is not listed as one of the countries available in the Star Alliance Award chart, but I’m guessing that’ll change now that there’s nonstop service. 40,000 miles is a steal! Have fun!
