    How Can Landlords Earn Miles or Points From Collecting Rent From Tenants?
    Thinking that the idea may seem odd, daninstl is seeking input on how a landlord might be about to collect miles or points via tenants who pay rent — and be able to do so without involving fees. As usual, members of Milepoint come through with suggestions and ideas.

    No More Delta Air Lines Information from ExpertFlyer Effective Immediately
    As of September 1, 2014, information pertaining to Delta Air Lines is no longer available using ExpertFlyer. Disappointed Milepoint members react to this announcement — including attempting to figure out what exactly is the ultimate goal of Delta Air Lines; and wondering if other airlines will follow suit.

    Airfare Pricing Logic — or Lack Thereof
    Speaking of Delta Air Lines, vickers will be the first to admit that he does not fully understand everything that goes into the pricing of airline tickets; but how is it logical that Delta Air Lines can charge greater than twice as much than its competitors for an itinerary from the same origination to the same destination — such as between Huntsville and Detroit?

    Are You a Victim of Time Travel Due to That Pesky International Date Line?
    Due to a consecutive stay of multiple nights starting in Tokyo and ending in Hawaii, Weatherboy was asked to choose which “valid stay” should be credited to his Hilton HHonors account, as it appeared that he checked out of the hotel property in Tokyo after he checked into the hotel property in Hawaii, according to the time stamps.

Perhaps Weatherboy should use his newly-found time travel skills to get the lottery numbers after they have been revealed and then travel back in time to play them for a sure-fire win...

    Guess the Airline From Photographs
    It is now time for you to play everybody’s new favorite game called Guess the Airline. The object of the game is to look at a photograph posted in this discussion and try to figure out to which airline does the photograph pertain. The third in a series of similar games — the others being (photo trivia) Guess the airport and (photo trivia) Guess the city — this new game is not hosted by Chuck Barris, Chuck Woolery or Milepoint’s very own “Chuck” Petersen...

    Video: Randy Petersen Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge — Five Times Over
    In one of the hallways at the Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel and Conference Center, Randy Petersen dumped a bucket of ice water over his own head five separate times and challenged five others in the process. The ice bucket challenge has called attention to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis — also known as ALS, or Lou Gherig’s Disease — which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord; and millions of dollars have been donated this year for research to successfully fight and beat this disease. Milepoint proudly supports this noble cause and mission. Find out how you can support the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association today by registering to donate.
