new DISaadvantage program (my RDM calc for 2016)

So, I only spent ~$8K to achieve EXP this year. But I earned ~200K RDM. If I were PLT, ditto.

But if I did the same next year, I would earn ~88K RDM, a 56% devaluation.
Worse, if I were PLT, I would earn only ~64K RDM, a massive 68% devaluation from this year !!!

Then of course, the U awards to Europe now cost 15% more, but I'm betting virtually none of those will be available anyway.

!!NEW NAME FOR AA ffp: DISaadvantage
