After a couple million paid flight miles, well over a decade of status in air and hotel programs, and having seen a lot of places, mostly not on mileage runs (and having started "the game" long before the internets helped one play it), I'm partially "over it." I still like the status, use the miles and points well, but am much more selective about where I keep my status, some of it isn't as important, and I'm tired of the upgrade game, so I buy some discounted premium seats from time to time, and for the most part, don't worry about it. Same with hotels. Much less driven, and more focused. Seeing a mistake or otherwise really cheap fare to fly all over, in the main cabin, maybe getting a battlefield upgrade, really has no more appeal for me. I can't be alone here. I still love to travel, and still do a fair amount of it. My game is "partly over."
