    Last March Wynette Kwok filed a suit claiming that Delta was violating the T&Cs of their SkyMiles program because they only issued points based on the minimum distance between city pairs, not the actual distance the plane traveled. They were seeking class-action status on behalf of SkyMiles members everywhere. That suit was dismissed earlier this month when the judge essentially decided that nothing about the claims was anywhere close to being reasonable grounds for a lawsuit.

    Good. This was a ridiculous, BS lawsuit.

    I agree. Everyone knows the shortest distance between 2 points is a straight line. Especially when if it affects the almighty $

    My favorite line from WA's blog: "Just because you believe something doesn’t make it true. Oopsie." :confused:

    Trying to understand "The Court does not, however, have to accept as true the legal significance that the Plaintiff attaches to this fact." makes me glad I
    didn't go to law school.

    I didn't either, but I figured that one out. Pretty funny, really.
