As I posted about yesterday, American is making some changes to their award ticket structure. These changes are at best a wash. Yes, one way awards are now possible, but they’ve essentially gotten rid of the international stopover, which is a huge benefit of award tickets in my mind.
Of course based on media reports of the change, you’d think this was an entirely positive change. Look at this MSNBC report, which talks about the positive changes, but conveniently leaves out the negative changes. I guess I kind of expect that from the mainstream media, though. The same goes for the “Today in the Sky” article in USA Today.
C’mon guys, this is disgusting. Did you have American write the article for you?
