Revenue Based Frequent Flier Programs For Legacy Carriers?
Some of you (us) are more into airline frequent flier programs and their usage than others.
For those who use and 'abuse' these programs regularly, are your tracking the 'murmurs' and 'rumors' regarding the possible/probably conversion to a 'new normal' for legacy carriers within the next year?
Randy Petersen seems to believe that a wholesale shift is imminent, while Gary Leff is leaning toward Delta being the first major to adopt this posture.
jmbklj you seem to be a miles junkie and follow these trends. What do you think.
kyshel, you probably have some thoughts on this subject as well.
If these changes do come about any time soon, then we will be adjusting our work patterns to accommodate burning a pile of miles sitting in several programs we use. No way do we plan to see our hard earned miles just evaporate after one year or whatever the time limitations.
