    I think the bottom line is this: the core issue is not bundled or not, but rather choice. Having the choice to unbundle is good for customers. Also having the choice to bundle is even better.

    That lift bundle is a joke. Buying skypesos at 2.4 cents a pop is pretty dumb unless you need a tiny bit more for a reward, but they position it as “here’s your chance of a lifetime to get 1000 miles extra for just $24.”

    The next bundle they come up with should be the PB&J where you get priority boarding and cracker Jacks at the gate 🙂

    I think bundling is a good idea because it gives travelers choice. That said, I’ve never purchased one myself. I’d love to be a fly on the wall in the boardroom of a major airline when they review the revenue generated from these programs.

    Are these available on the non-airline sites? If not, they may serve to encourage non-elites to use the airline’s own site just to be able to see whats available. Airlines do want to sell through their own sites.
