    That would be free beer and bacon, in coach. Though I'd take some bacon on the breakfast plate in F rather than the "sausage" or "ham."

    The leading airline needs the world's leading award program: four tier awards.

    I'll go five tier awards. Anyone want to go six?

    Delta has to do it first.

    Hey, who wants to play wholly uninformed speculation that's almost certainly not it (actually, that's what we're doing already)....

    I'll go first:
    • Reward redemptions on bling air and Transaero
    • Hotel crossover rewards
    • Announcing service and special low redemption rates to MLB so you can all come see me. :D

    A special rate for redemptions to MAA on LH F :D

    ----------------------------------------
    (LH does not have F class service to MAA anymore) :(

    But Bling Air flies there. So the announcement is a partnership with Bling Air with special low redemption rates to MAA.

    And with Transearo including the ability to redeem on their repositioning flights for maintenance to and from....yep, you guessed it, good ole' MLB. It's true, they do maintenance on their 744s here.

    :D

    You're comparing changes in a frequent flyer program to the Pearl Harbor attack? Seriously? :rolleyes:

    Don't read it as a "comparison" more than a bad attempt at humor.

    I thought it was mildly clever. But then, I also enjoyed the free bacon joke.

    I'm going to guess that it's going to be half priced award trips on B787 itineraries in order to fill the planes after another day of bad news.

    My guess is they're going to do away with the term 1k and call it something more logic based: like, oh, I don't know, 100k.




    (Kidding. But the term 1k does drive me mildly crazy)

    I am a loyalist of the dear respected Supreme Leader Jeff Smisek, therefore I utterly disregard and laugh off all silly doomsday notions presented here.

    I'm thinking the upcoming improvement to MP will be a long overdue "miles plus cash" option for award redemptions.

    A friend of mine at the UA head office tipped me off. Starting in January 2014, miles may be redeemed as a credit against jail time at the rate of 100 miles for 1 day. I think that's reasonable.

    When a post starts with this schtick (as many of HG's do), I lose interest and tend not to bother with the rest of it. Shame because I'm sure some of them might contain some good information.

    Its your prerogative...my praise of The Jeff seemingly keeps me away from both delay prone ERJs and the Economy cabin generally. ;) :D

    I disagree. The new redemption option will be redeeming miles for non-airline events like concerts, restaurants, and so forth, such as the annual mass games to honor the dear respected Supreme Leader Jeff Smisek.
