    • @Joe – Was clearing out my inbox and saw this Happy New Year email from SPG that I had never read. I think the 2012 annual facts are interesting regardless of the time of year and non Platinum members can now have a chance to view the stats too.

  2. Could’ve let me book the LAX-FCO trips and I keep the rest of the Starpoints… I’d be pretty happy that way, too. But yes, I echo the same sentiment… WHAT WAS THAT FELLA THINKING?!?!
