That's OK - just because you can't get your head around the concept doesn't mean that it is wrong.

A FF member may not be a shareholder in the company - but they are definately a stakeholder. Qantas can ill afford to lose Platinum tier customers.

I'm already LTG - and as a Gold member, I'm now better off! I never have to fly with Qantas again and will still receive pretty decent benefits.

Can't say the same for Qantas, though - how does that help their bottom line?

That's it - I'm not interested in a rant back and forth...
