This sounds serious. Time will tell.

You can gamble for matchsticks and you can gamble for gold, but if you haven't gambled for love and lost, then you haven't gambled at all.

gercohen, a link to that promotion would be most helpful so that I may be one of the first to sign up. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/wink.gif

I could sure use the SkyMiles.

MCI's auditors have determined it won't hurt their balance sheet to provide the 3.8 billion SkyMiles to each customer.

the auditors have in fact determined that this will generate a big profit by being booked as revenue rather than expense

Especially with the 3.8 billion miles spread out over 10 years.

It's amusing to review this three-year-old thread... I guess deep down we knew these guys were crooks.

Scotty, I suggest that an edit of your message is in order. QL is refering to his situation 3 years ago, not the one that is happening now.

Personal attacks, especially when misdirected, are stupid (and moronic).
