The New (AA/RN) Rating Instrument

Is a PITA

Although I have made it my goal to not Idine on 5-mile per dollar days, sometimes I do; but I never rate those bonus-less meals.

The new matrix is such a hassle Iím wondering if itís worth it to rate cheap lunches. I know that I could just answer at random, but the ex-quasi-academic in me is hesitant to skew their numbers. I am particularly vexed when asked to rank order 7 factors of why I ate somewhere. Sacrilege, I know, but there may actually be a limit to how much work that I am willing to do for less than 50 cents worth of miles.

I also kinda see it funny how one of the answers to the questions involve "found restaurant using phone app" when AA doesn't even participate in the RN app

If you're feeling sour, surely it's a sourdough rather than a pita bread?

Used it today, agree with everyone, the old way was better. Still 70 miles is worth anything

Couldn't agree more with everyone. Specially since, at least in my case, I have to repeat the same process for a handful of restaurants I go to. Unfortunately, not a great variety of places worth going in my area.

The learning curve is pretty shallow IMO - it takes little time, and brevity, well, it's the spice of life, right?
