Spot on

i agree 100%. All of the years as a 1K and 1.6mm miles seem to have reached their Zenith. I only have another 4-6 years of this before I retire or at least cut back on the rat race. I donít think...

Mileage plus awards major devaluations

I made a move to cash in some miles for a Bowflex

1.6MMíer resigned to *G

Iíve got another 5 or so years of working. I may or may not hit 2MM, no way to make 3MM. I guess I donít see much advantage to *A Platinum unless another tier is somehow created for benefits. This...

I donít think the airlines will be buying aircraft for awhile. It will be the leasing companies fattening their assets with fire-sale prices. Could be Chinese buying since theyíre back in action...
