Air miles
By Amber Baldwin

With all the talk about Alaska Air, here's my two-cents.

I buy plane tickets for my kids but can't get my kids' mileage so now my 2 year old has his own account. How sad are the airlines getting? One would think that the person buying the tickets would have the right to the mileage or at least the parent would have the right to the mileage.

Also gone are the days when you could transfer any amount of miles from your account into a friend's account for only a flat rate. Now transferring miles is the same as buying them!

So long to the good'ol days (granted I'm only 22)!
