Do you think that with that demise, interest in WPs will drop?
It could be that on removal of the upgrade vouchers interest on Worldpoints might drop. Maybe BAA & HEX will find a way of limiting the vouchers to one use only (as intended). Whatever happens there are lots of other things to talk about relating to BAA airports.

The only other airport loyalty scheme I know about it Schiphol Privium. I have posted about this as I think it is a rip off. Privium charges 99 for a service that UK immigration provides for free - albeit IRIS never man the sign up desks so I still do not have a card. There you go, another issue to talk about!
