nsx, could you ask your contacts if Starwood will remain a CC partner after 3/1/11? I have some big spend coming up and it makes a difference to me. New website only mentions WN Visa and Diners as CC partners.

If I am reading right, existing RR 1.0 Award tickets in your account carry blackout days and may be capacity-controlled after 3/1/11. : "Standard Award and Freedom Award rules, regulations, and expiration dates remain unchanged."

A-List Preferred members buying Business Select tickets will have a LOT easier time getting a Companion Pass. In the example WN is giving, a $220 BS ticket for that person earns 5280 points (24 per dollar). Consider a RT like that, paid with the WN Visa (2 points per dollar). $440*24 = 10560 plus 880 for the CC spend = 11440.

It would only take 10 such RTs to get CP. I bet that will get dialed back.

WN will start getting featured in the Mileage Run forum finally.
