Update on the old joke

  1. I just flew in from the east coast, and boy, are my arms tired! (No I wasn't flapping all the way. I was fighting over the armrest. It seems the 120,000 frequent flyer miles I have accumulated are worthless because so many other people have so many more.)

    Have you focused your miles on a single program, or are they spread around? Are those 120k rdms' (redeemable miles) or eqm's (elite qualifying miles). You need to build up enough eqm's each year to get status in your preferred airline/alliance, so that you can get to select choice seats and get upgrades. That is a partial solution to the armrestling.

    The other question is what program your miles are in... DL is pretty bad for redemption. UA is OK, but they block seats on other *A flights. AA seems to be fairly reasonable but OW is a weak alliance.
