Airline Funny Business

Kathy and Brian re-qualified months ago for the top tier of United Airlines for 2012.

We're less than happy with the way in which the Million Mile Flyer benefits have apparently been devalued, although we're not giving up on United yet.

Now we find out that what may be a computer glitch has promoted many of us to Continental's super-elite tier, known as Presidential Platinum Elite Status.

That status identifies customers who've spent a minimum of $30,000 on CO tickets. Uh, no we haven't (we're just a little over $29,000 short) but we've already printed out our new cards and will flash them at every opportunity.

Take that, George Clooney.
