Take back my US Airways miles….please!


Here’s one to file under: Don’t Do Me Any Favors..

I got this email from US Airways a couple of days ago.  They’re  threatening to rescind my remaining frequent flier miles due to lack of activity. 

And I say: take them! 

When I first moved down to Eastern Pennsylvania from the suburban New York City, I switched from flying out of Newark on Continental to flying out of Philly on US Airways….

Big mistake.

I suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune with these guys for a couple of years before I realized that it was infinitely easier to drive back up to Newark. I’ve got nothing against the pilots and aircrew—they are professionals. But the management and luggage handlers? Carumba! 

And so, I bid a not-so-fond adieu to my miles, and all the suffering I had to undergo to earn them.  As they say, don’t let the door hit you…..

Traveling in coach with photo gear is enough of a hardship these days, and I don’t need to add insult to that injury!
