    Yesterday BA announced their plan to rebrand BA Executive Club miles as "Avios points" (or even simply "Avios," if one is to believe some of the new BA materials). Clearly, this begs a question: what awful new names should other miles/points programs adopt to rival this masterstroke?

    BA will surely be called Adios.

    DL is already known as SkyPiles

    I'd like more truth in labeling from Delta, starting with reorganizing award levels into new categories: Saver, Standard, and Stuck Pig.
     
  4. Northwest when taken over by Delta--Skyjacked.

    Mileage Pus, if the (rumored) changes to the program are all implemented.

    Although as the old saying goes, this would be insulting to holders of actual pesos

    If we're talking a weird, new name for the units of "currency"...

    Southwest Airlines: instead of Points, now it's Bovios - from the word "bovine" due to the cattle car nature of WN

    I thought itsaboutthejourney on FT coined the term. (He has a different username here.)
