This Week’s Travel News With God Save The Points!

We’ve been working on some format changes for my NowBoarding podcast the past couple of months.  One of the formats we’re trying is a weekly news format.  That’s what we had on tap this week.  I invited Gilbert from God Save The Points to do a quick recap of the best stories in travel from the past week.  We talked for about 15 minutes, just long enough to give you a taste of what we think you should be reading.  Whether you download the episode on iTunes or listen to it on our website, we appreciate you tuning in.  In case you’re wondering, here are the stories we covered this week:

  1. I really don’t understand why United thinks that it’s a great idea to give a big middle finger to the most engaged members of their loyalty program. If they had to Bonvoy a group, wouldn’t the LEAST engaged be a better target?

    I know that you mention that the airlines “invest” in their loyalty programs, but actually the opposite is true: frequent flyer programs not only don’t cost the airlines anything, they generate huge amounts of profit. Moving in this direction will massively devalue the miles and thus the profit. Not the smartest idea I’ve heard this year. Then again, United isn’t exactly known for fresh great ideas. To be fair, neither is American.

    Chase has to be apoplectic about this as well, although since they can’t do anything about it right now, they’ll likely just have to pretend that they’re on board with this.
