US Airways will end the practice of awarding a minimum of 500 miles for all its flights, and will instead award only the mileage flown for short hops. (Ben Mutzabaugh at USA Today has all the details.)
The 500-mile minimum has been pretty much universal. But if USAir gets away with this cutback, other airlines might follow suit. They’re all trying to cut back on expenses and increase revenues.
So, I’m wondering, how do you think they should do it?
