    Well, just confirmed on the website that AirTran is leaving the MR program effective March 1st, 2012. So a decent amount of advance notice which is nice...

    Not unexpected since Southwest left the program and is exclusive to Chase.... but still its yet another blow to the AMEX MR program.

    I'm gonna keep crossing my fingers for a partnership with Alaska Airlines.... but the MR program isnt what it used to be.

    I don't see Air Tran as much of a loss but I guess less options is always a bad thing. When my 75000 Amex Biz Gold points post then i'll have to think about what to do with them!
