Miami Herald on frequent-flier miles

What to know: News, tips and values (Miami Herald Sunday travel section, 25 September 2005):

Like Delta, NWA is also promising to honor tickets and award points (in past bankruptcies , courts have protected them, recognizing that airlines in financial pain need customer loyalty more than ever).

So not to worry, at least in the near term….

Still, you may want to think about taking a trip sooner rather than later.

“People who have frequent-flier miles should use them up,” said Edward Hasbrouck, author of Practical Nomad travel books.

“Hoarding them is never a good idea.”

Some more good ideas :

Pay with a credit card, consider buying from a third party who will help you if things go wrong and consider travel insurance .

"Don't believe anything just because you read it on the Internet. Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they do. The Internet is the most effective medium in history for the rapid global propagation of rumor, myth, and false information." (From The Practical Nomad Guide to the Online Travel Marketplace, 2001)
