    Give them a break. They goofed.

    As a Platinum, I got my miles. Like you miles were promised to my wife and then denied. She's not bummed out.

    The cost to buy 1,000 miles is around $25. Most of us here based on past FT threads value the miles between 1 and 2 cents. No big loss.

    From a PR standpoint, US Airways should have done something beyond saying sorry. Giving 100 mile would have cut its cost and saved it some good will.
