I don’t have any doubt that AA can make its decisions stick. I do have quite a bit of doubt about whether they have their heads fully around the issues involved and whether they and Citi are fully...

For years, there has been a serious disconnect between the incentive structure of Citi’s AAdvantage marketing team and what’s good for Citi and AA generally. That’s the only plausible explanation for...

"Take what the merchant says at face value" would be a fair summary of my wife's recent experience. In her case, it was a hotel no-show charge for a reservation she'd canceled. The hotel insisted...
