WSJ: New Ways to Calculate Frequent Flier Miles Lead Some to Book Fares Late http://online.wsj.com/news/article_...4579449283222538894-lMyQjAxMTA0MDEwOTExNDkyWj The article mentions JetBlue and Soutwest, but the comments (including mine) largely focus on DL. Many will, of course, still try to game the system in the pursuit of miles, spend, etc. I think the perspective is different depending on who is paying for the travel. As I was quoted, I'm not likely to pay $3500 for a J TATL fare...not when I could go more places for that amount! My job will continue to look for the lowest fare possible; I'll continue to make every effort to avoid Ryanair.
