Bath_VIP, if airlines were to adpot the hotels.com model they could no longer dump unsold seats but would have to tolerate customers using their miles/points on going where and when they actually want to go. Dishing out discounted seats to Inner Mongolia in January doesn’t cost the airline a penny (in fact, fuel and other fantasy charges bring in a little revenue for seats that would otherwise go unsold) whereas giving a discount on any flight to Florida in peak season actually costs them money.
