  1. Devaluing airline rewards is like gambling and the dealer continuously reaching over and grabbing a handful of your chips each time.

  2. As someone who has flown Emirates business on points, this is disappointing.

    While it’s justifiable to spend more than average on Emirates for such luxury… However once you get that 777 business class seat you realize you overpaid and could have spent, those points on an equally as nice seat for a lot less.

    I’ll pay a premium for the A380 but this is just a Delta-like move that’ll have folks jumping to Qatar or a competitor.
