<<Just my personal opinion, but with airlines in the black, and no significant downturn yet this summer, don't be surprised to see the airlines back down on some of their card award programs this fall. But then again, the flight schedules are already sooooo restrictive for the free tickets, perhaps they don't care.>>

First of all, the only card I'm qualified to suggest would be the Citibank AA Visa/Mastercard. I've had no problems with them, and enjoy the miles.

You need to remember that this card has an annual fee of $50, but if you charge enough, the miles make it more than worthwhile. Also, when you sign up, they give you a buy one-get one free offer for a round trip.

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.
