Alpha flight guru Gene khiz (aka gene khizver, Tim Gibson) Scam, fraud, thieves. Illegal tickets. Internet

*UPDATE Employee: AlphaFlightGuru Believes in Excellent Customer Service

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors... is a scam. They heavily advertise "cheap business class tickets" online (mostly thought pay per click programs), and it is a bait and switch operation. They sell illegal tickets using airline miles. The operation is ran by Gene Khiz (Eugene Evegeniy Khziver and Tim Gibson). I purchased tickets from them thinking I was getting a good deal. When arrived at the airport, my tickets were cancelled. American Airlines told me that the tickets that I paid $9k for we're "illegal" and that the are not allowed to be resold. Alpha flight guru is exploiting loyalty programs and they are a scam!!! I had to pay $12k at the airport because I had no flight. I then talked to Gene Khiz who tried to convince me that I was misinformed. A avoid this company at all costs, SCAM!!!!!!!
