    The ending of loyalty programs provide conciusive evidence of the collapse of airline competition and make obvious the collusive lock of Wall Street on The skies Where once airlines were run by airline people who tried to win and keep and be nice to passengers or else they would take their business elsewhere, today there is basically no credible elsewhere. A lost loyal customer was to be regretted: "we may never get him back" was the concern. Now the airlines are waging war on choiceless Americans. Hopefully a Special Prosecutor for the Airline Mergers will get to the bottom of how the Blackstone group and the other hedge funds were gifted with a multi billion dollar windfall of taxpayer money. What has replaced loyalty programs can best be called scamarama-it is an invitation for those spending other people's money to seek out rip off fares that are passed along to frequently unwitting victims . So loyalty schemes are now replaced by Schemes to Defraud.

    Opening argument United States v airline competition fixers
    Ladies and gentlemen, this case involves the largest and probably most brazen consumer ripoff in American history. You will learn that, without necessity, lawmakers and regulators agreed to turnover-gift- the skyways of our nation to a tiny cabal of individuals. To accomplish this audacious multi billion dollar scheme to defraud, you will learn that consumers were told, incredibly, that these unwarranted and unnecessary mergers we're going to provide great benefits to the flying public. You will learn that not only did this arrangement result in billions of dollars flowing to Wall Street and pocketed by airline Chiefs inciuding multi million dollar secerance and pay packages, sky high airfares, record profits,but worse still that air travel became worse than at any time in modern history. To accomplish the objectives of this conspiracy lobbyists fanned out on Capitol Hill, spending enormous sums of money and that there was a near total collapse of proper regulation and a revolving door from Capitol Hill and executive agencies into lobbying firms and vice versa....to be continued
    Prospective jurors who laughed out loud at the mention of merger benefits were nit seated
