Maybe I'm overthinking this but it sounds like if he didn't give away his companion seat to lots of random people, plus the thousands of no-shows, he would still have his golden ticket.

So just a bit חבל imho

I bought a UA lifetime club pass and now they're messing us over with that.
Never pay for anything lifetime from an airline.
Didn't you have similar issues with your Fairmont purchase?

This is true for any significant lifetime purchase from a business. If you are costing them money and not adding to their top-line, sooner or later they will figure out a way to change their end of the deal. Especially considering the person pulling the plug usually wasn't around when the business was on the receiving end.

We amicably settled after I got a lawyer involved.

Sadly, no.

Part of an amicable settlement with a (major) corporation will always be an NDC, or else it might create a greater liability for them than what the settlement was about.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
