Yesterday I wrote about the death of the Guam-in-United-States mistake on the Avianca LifeMiles award chart. Until yesterday, we could book awards to Hawaii, Japan, or Guam for 12,500 miles or less than $200 each way.
I thought that Avianca finally realized their mistake after months of it being openly discussed online, but the real cause might have been a Department of Transportation complaint filed by a miles blogger. Either way, a blogger probably killed the deal.
It got me thinking of other deals that were possibly killed by the blogs, and a few other deals that might be killed by the blogs.
- Which deals did the blogs kill?
- Which deals might have already been poisoned by the blogs?
- Is killing a deal bad?
