Podcast #9: Hyperinflation of PointsFrequent flyer points are a valuable currency, but they are not immune from hyperinflation! Airlines increase the cost of redeeming points – thus reducing the value of points – all the time and often without warning.

In Episode 9 of the AFF on AIR podcast, Matt discusses why frequent flyer points are a terrible long-term investment. This episode also includes an interview with Darwin-based frequent flyer and lawyer at Ward Keller, Leon Loganathan about redeeming Alaska Airlines miles, Marriott Bonvoy, Emirates First Class, the Qantas call centre, the Northern Territory and more.
