SBinRR: Northwest should have just given the rabbi the "It's not you, it's us" letter. He complained 24 times in seven months, and takes approximately 75 flights a year. That's roughly one complaint every two flights. I hate flying as much as the next person, but that seems excessive.If I were Northwest I would have told him "It appears we aren't the right airline for you. Best regards".

Warlordtrooper: This is why corporate mergers should be banned. Consumers need more competition not Less. Any corporate merger should be a violation of anti-trust law.
Silverstaff: illannoyin: American Airlines has a history of canceling your miles when it becomes unprofitable for them. Do a Google for 'AAirpass' for more examples./Can't post links from my phoneI did some googling, that was enlightening.Quick summation for people: Sometime in 1981, American Airlines began selling the "AAirpass", a super-deluxe golden ticket. For a $250,000 (in 1981 dollars) you got unlimited lifetime first class airfare, and you could spend another $150,000 to get a lifetime companion ticket too.The price went up in the late 80's, and was eventually cost a million dollars by 1993 when the program was terminated. However, people still had their lifetime unlimited first class airfare.Some people used it constantly. Flying back and forth to London several times a week. Commuting cross-country regularly. One guy was a Good Samaritan with his and used it to fly home stranded passengers and did other good deeds with his companion ticket.Well, lawsuits are flying because American Airlines has been trying to get rid of the people with these special unlimited deals for years. And AA has been revoking a number of them alleging "fraud", and there are lawsuits out about this from people who say they were just getting full use out of their contract with American Airlines.http://nypost.com/2012/05/13/freequent-flier-has-wings-clipped-after -a merican-airlines-takes-away-his-unlimited-pass/http://business.time.com/2012/05/08/the-250000-airline-pass-that-was -w orth-every-penny/
