    A report says that United's Chase Sapphire deal might be in trouble and hints that the company may make $1Billion or more selling miles which should have every US Attorney in the country (and state AG's) geared up. How do you continue to hard sell miles in a program you've gutted in an industry where the Delta CEO who has pioneered the decimation of frequent flyer programs has publicly said he intends that only a tiny number of people will, in the future, redeem their miles, especially for air travel.

    And where is the SEC in all of this? United's finances are premised on selling miles in a program they've gutted and Today reports of a deal to sell absolutely worthless travel insurance from AIG. These sketchy revenue streams are presumably baked into the financials?
