    So basically the judges just told us to all go file a DOT complaint against United and cite them in case the DOT states they don’t have to right to deal with it.

    I’m all for filing a DOT complaint!

    There is nothing remotely pyrrhic about this. UA had its summary judgment affirmed by the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, with a majority on the three judge panel that included Judge Posner, who is quite possibly one of the most respected jurists not presently seated on the Supreme Court. I suspect that the Supreme Court will deny cert if the plaintiffs seek review. From a judicial standpoint, this case is over. United won the war.

    But sooner or later some lawsuit will challenge that since the majority of miles are not earned by flying but by collateral activities, that the ADA isn’t the end all of consumer complaints. Some person will be wronged, probably by United, and they will make a claim that since the majority of miles they earned came from financial uses that the courts should make decisions based on the origin of the miles. Give it time.
