We covered:
-What AMEX pays LY for points
-What happened with AA.
-What happened with HAS
-Future of B6 reciprocity.
-Future mileage partners.
-Upcoming US co-brand card.
-Expiration policies/breakage
-Rationale behind J/F increases
-Upcoming reduced award promo
-Difference between airlines that can effectively tap the US cc market
-Who's booking LY F
-YQ
-Saver/standard awards
-Upcoming LY website redesign
-Loyalty of paid vs award customers
-LY point system origins

And more. My issue is I don't really know what I can say here about that...

Come on everyone is going to go down the "loyalty of paid vs award customers" but we know that's crap. If they can run a milage program well they should be making money anyhow.

And really ? Web design? Oh they do read you scathing reports ? Good morning !

And how much did you tell him you charge for it
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

You most definitely can and should charge them as a consultant. Big time! :)
You have much more exposure to global travel, airlines and milage programs than the people sitting in a tlv board room...

unless they commit to do as you recommend it would just be a way to shush your criticism imo

On which of the above 16 points did you already agree with him before you spoke to him, on how many did you agree with him after talking with him and on how many of them do you still disagree?

Maybe this LY FFP discussion should be in a separate thread?
Especially as this is getting more and more interesting

I can imagine that advertising that "Daniel Eleff of DansDeals.com will be joining our team" will do a lot to promote the brand in certain demographics... :P
