Leave Earth for 10 million air miles.

In an agreement with US Airways, Space Adventures Ltd. is offering suborbital space flights by collaborating with several independent companies, each of which is developing its own version of a Reusable Launch Vehicle.

US Airways customers with 10 million Dividend Miles can anticipate space tourism flights aboard these RLVs to begin in the 2003 to 2005 time frame--or you can pay $98,000 per person and sign up now. The trip includes overnight accommodations; Space Adventures suborbital flight ticket; custom-fit flight training suit; flight training; and personalized travel bag.

Those with a smaller stockpile of Dividend Miles--say, 30,000 plus $650--can trade it in for a VIP launch experience at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, including a tour of the launch and landing facilities.

For 250,000 miles and $2,000, you can experience weightlessness on a zero-G flight. Or, for 275,000 miles and $8,000, travel on a MiG-25 Foxbat jet fighter to the edge of space, at 85,000 feet. Check it out at http://www.spaceadventures.com
