    Link seems ok for me. It's a 6+-minute video with the following intro:

    "Frequent flyer miles have been around since 1980 but in recent years many collectors have complained it is getting ever more difficult to spend them because of the lack of free seats on flights.

    And if you can get a seat they can turn into an expensive option as one couple planning a trip to Singapore discovered. Simon Calder took up their case and has some advice on the best way to get value from your miles."

    Some of it is pure BA redemption policy, which is to say, for &&%^%#@ :) Between BA and BAA, exiting out of UK on Business or higher long haul is a very expensive proposition.
