While killing time yesterday, noticed the Jan 6 direct flt from Chicago had gone from non-available or 35k air miles ea one way to 17.5k air miles ea. We had booked when the flight was available using air miles at 35k ea one way- we had booked the return for 17.5 ea when that flight had become available. Checking this morning, the direct is still available. I spent over 2 hours on hold yesterday on the phone getting the flight changed to get half of my air miles back- was worth it and I did a lot of reading on the computer. This is the first time I had seen the drop in air miles required since I booked.
