I got this email and something caught my eye. They are asking for miles which is fine by me, they are donating 1,000,000,00 miles to the cause. I was thinking though, if the average award trip costs you 25,000,00 miles, then it would seem that American are only flying 40 people for free. 25,000,00 x 40 = 1,000,000,00. Not too good in my opinion, just wanted to hear your opinion on the matter.


Dear Robert Powers,

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, relocation efforts are ongoing and recovery is moving forward. But many of the people evacuated from their neighborhoods have urgent travel needs -- to relocate, connect with family, and ultimately, return back home. Thousands were separated from their homes and loved ones by Hurricane Katrina, and American Airlines and the United Way have joined forces to assist them.

We've formed the Miles to Move Forward Program to help provide transportation to those affected by this terrible tragedy in the Gulf Coast region. American has already committed one million AAdvantage miles - miles that are already being put to good use -- and now we're asking our AAdvantage members to get involved.

If you've been watching the news reports and wondering how to help, here's an easy way. You can donate miles from your AAdvantage account (minimum 1,000 miles) just by clicking the link below and following the simple steps.

Visit aa.com for more information or to donate to Miles to Move Forward: www.aa.com/disasterrelief

Your miles can help someone who has suddenly found themselves displaced due to this disaster. The need is great, so we urge you to be generous. With more than 50 million American Airlines AAdvantage members worldwide, this program can make a tremendous difference.

We thank you for joining American Airlines, the AAdvantage program and the United Way in this effort. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Kurt Stache
President
AAdvantage Marketing Programs

That's 40 fewer tickets that the American Red Cross has to spend money on for relief workers though - freeing up the money for food, water, etc.
