    For my MBA thesis I’m doing research on the usage of frequent flyer programs. I’m mostly focusing on Europe but off course I cannot go around the major US programs.

    I find it hard to find information about the FF programs. Information I’m looking for:
    - How many miles are collected in the program each year
    - How many miles are used each year (how many on trips/upgrades/other things/…)

    I find bits and pieces of information spread over the internet but not something I can safely integrate as trustworthy data.

    Thanks for helping me/pointing me to a good source!

    Send a PM to Randy the founder of Milepoint. He may be able to point you in the right direction.

    As others have said, your best bet is Randy or Gary. But I still think you'll have an uphill battle finding out the split on how the miles are used and on what as that data is likely considered to be proprietary.
