Is Your Airline Screwing You at Both Ends? 


Back in April 2013, we covered the remarkable mileage devaluation that is happening as the legacy airlines dramatically increase the number of points/miles required to redeem your miles. But now, most travelers are also getting screwed on the other end, with rapidly decreasing mileage earning for discounted tickets.

Airlines across the globe, from Delta to Qantas have announced fare-based accrual coming up. And some discount fares on partner carriers earn no mileage;  flying Lufthansa in T or L class within Europe, for example, you’ll earn no MileagePlus miles at all!
