Even in an article I’m not quoted in, and wasn’t interviewed for. Here’s the Wall Street Journal:
Besides the lack of availability of awards, travelers complain that raising the price for awards essentially devalues the miles or points in their account. The currency no longer has the same buying power. Frequent fliers on forums such as FlyerTalk and MilePoint jokingly refer to Delta’s SkyMiles as SkyPesos.
Truth’s truth, even in the ‘mainstream media’. 😉
