Businesses Shift to Low Fare Airlines, Travelers Lose Perks

All those frequent flyer miles you've accumulated allowing you the get that free upgrade to first class may soon be worthless. As businesses continue to tighten the belt on travel costs and force employees to travel on discount airlines, those who have earned thousands of miles on "traditional" airlines may be unable to use them. Many corporations such as Black & Decker are moving away from majors like Delta to economy carriers like AirTran. USA Today reports major airlines will react to this shift by lowering mileage requirements or by completely revamping programs.

How about substituting the word "to" for "the" in the first sentence in order to get that free upgrade!

L. Pastor, if you're competing in the spelling contests, this post is too old to qualify. Just those published after the original entry about the contest. If you were just being nice and pointing out an error, though, thanks!
