    Pretty much nonsense, IMO.

    The percentage of travelers that last year picked up a VDB voucher is presumably minuscule compared to the overall traveling population. And outside of the world of Flyertalk, probably even fewer people actively were considering VDB potential when booking a flight. So everyone pretty much is still getting what they paid for when they booked the trip.
