I don't have a whole lot to contribute to the discussion as I don't fly that much, but I do question your estimate of the value of a FF mile.

The airline's value of a FF mile takes into account the chance that you might not cash it in. If you know you're going to use it, it has more value.

Since you guys know a lot about how these programs work, let me ask you a question. I'll be traveling a lot in the next year as a consultant, and in many cases, the company I'm doing business with will buy the tickets. Is there any way I can get frequent flier miles for those tickets?

Thanks.
