• This would be to provide protection over any assets registered in the US. Much the same as VirginAustralia has done - although I believe they filed for a Chapter 15 and not 11.I may be wrong but I believe that it would also stop people confiscating non-US assets when they landed into the country....

  • I think it is highly likely that the points value will be very close to zero. You could argue that you haven't actually paid anything for these anyway, albeit, that the cost was included in the price of your ticket.The biggest problem is likely to be the complete loss in value of any travel credi...
