    Matthew Yglesias is one of those guys who has to pontificate about EVERYTHING, even concerning matters on which he knows squat.

    Take a look at his archives. Every conceivable topic under the sun. Anyone who pays any attention to him is foolish.

    In fairness, Matt’s point is pretty much spot on. If you fly frequently, and you can stick with one alliance, do so. Then you don’t have to pay to get comforts a la carte.

    So you get the 5000EQM and the flight eqm for this package? I see the bid is up to +/- 80K miles now.
