  1. Doesn’t surprise me
    The CEO has always been about profits and ego over people
    He is the ultimate greed monger.”lock him up”
    He would risk lives for a wooden nickel
    And his stinginess doesn’t stop with award availability and a criminal lack of customer service
    But added to all that now safety concerns
    I’m so glad I moved my business elsewhere 100% as of this year

  2. Back in the days of US Airways, there was a Get Out More promotion (called GOM) where there were multiple 2x mile codes and you were able to stack them due to their poor IT. For several months flyers were getting 5x or 6x on all flights and they were status miles as well as redeemable miles. I had a friend who did one round-trip, received over 50,000 miles and was up gold. Some people earned an incredible amount of miles over that time (think 7 figures), especially the ones who did weekly cross country commutes.
