<<I disagree with you Roy, I see no ending to the mileage program. Remember that this also plays into the customer loyalty issue, having fliers remain faithful to the airline. While it's always possible that future changes in the number of miles needed for free trips could occur, I doubt the program would ever be eliminated.>>Yo!! Tony!!!We don't really disagree that much...I just didn't explain my position that well. Elimination? Nope. Cutbacks? Yup. Instead of, say, 20k miles for a free flight, it might go up to 30k. Or even MORE restrictions on flights.My wife and I have a number of miles on three airlines. We have been trying to make reservations this summer for Seattle, the Cayman Islands, and Washington DC on any or ALL of the airlines that we have free miles with. Almost impossible. Because of the restrictions, trying to fly "free" when you want to is becomming more and more difficult. And as far as I'm concerned, THAT is a form of cutback. But elimination? Naw. They'll just keep finding other ways to screw ya.Do I sound bitter??TMF TaxesRoy Lewis
