Back in May of this year (Memorial Day), my fiancee decided to join my younger brother and I out in California for a visit. Long story short, she didn't have the cash to purchase a ticket so therefore she used accumulated airline miles from US Air to fly out there. She supposedly used a whopping 50,000 miles to fly from PHL to BUR in economy. I ended up saying I'd repay her by transferring the miles I'd earn through flights I was taking to HEL from EWR on Lufthansa and to TFN from PHL on US Air this summer. However, doesn't 50,000 miles on any airline for a RT domestic flight in economy from PHL to BUR seem OUTRAGEOUS? It seems extremely fishy to me and it sort of just occurred to me.
