Air Travel Naughty and Nice List: Point CounterpointConde Nast Daily Traveler
One Daily Traveler blogger wrote about the Consumer Reports Naughty and Nice list. As usual, I had a different view. They’re posted together as a point-counterpoint piece.

I was on Peter Greenberg’s radio show talking about mergers, frequent flier programs, etc. It starts at about the 1:29 mark and goes for 10 minutes. This was taped a few weeks ago and just aired over the last weekend. As you can tell at the end, I disagree with Peter a lot on fees.
