When is Losing Better than Winning?


I spent the better part of 2003-2006 working towards Executive Platinum status on American Airlines.  Come January 1, 2008 I will lose it.  What does this mean?  It means I'm spending more time with my son and wife.  And, not insignificantly, it means I have finally broken the chains of a very powerful loyalty program.

Losing never felt so good.
