WestJet has had one for years. I hadn't even bothered signing up because unless you purchase at least $1,500 in 12 months then you don't earn a dime. These policies were changed a couple days ago so hopefully I can start earning something on my frequent YYZ-YUL trips...
As for Air Asia X, good for them. Are these points transparent between Air Asia subsidiaries and Air Asia X? There was a time a few months ago when I was flying Air Asia Thailand just about every three days, this program would have been helpful!
Southwest invented the airline loyalty program soon after start-up in the 1970s when Braniff undercut Southwest's fares. Instead of getting into a fare war, Southwest gave away a bottle of scotch to any passenger who traveled on full fare. For a while, the biggest liquor distributor in the State of Texas was Southwest.
