From the Mailbag: Mileage Mistake
Q: For obvious reasons, I am not going to tell you the name of the airline but here goes: last December, I cashed in some miles to obtain a frequent-flier award ticket. Lo and behold, on my January frequent-flier statement, I was awarded full frequent-flier miles on the free flight (about 6,000 miles). As anyone can figure out, this was some kind of computer glitch. My question: if I "spend" those miles on a future trip, will the airline discover their error and come back to me and charge me for the flight I used them on? I realize you can't predict airline business practices, but just wondering if you've heard of a similar situation.
A: Read on.
