Simplified Chinese language

Abstract

This is a Simplified Chinese version. From 1980 to 2010, frequent flyer programs (FFPs) had evolved from simple customer reward programs to independent profit-generation business models. The airline industry had seen enormous success with FFPs, which had become businesses of their own. In June 2014, however, United Airlines announced that as of March 1, 2015, it would move from awarding miles based on distance flown to awarding miles for dollars spent per ticket, following in the footsteps of Delta Air Lines. According to the new mileage accrual plan, most United Airlines passengers would earn fewer reward miles. Many customers saw this change as a significant devaluation of award miles and complained about United Airlines' new policy. Who benefited from the revenue-based FFPs and how would the new program affect the behaviour of United Airlines' customers? Should American Airlines also adopt the revenue-based FFP?
