Simon Calder, the Independent's travel editor, said it was akin to banks closing savers' current accounts.

I suppose its a bit like Christmas clubs, voucher schemes and mobile phones. You don't use, collect or save, you lose the lot. Perhaps Nectar might be the next to change!.

when you buy your ticket, and to my way of thinking they become yours, they don't belong to the airmiles company to do with as they wish.

Minor correction.

Whoever pays for the ticket pays for the airmiles.

For a freelance like your goodself that is undoubtedly you, but for many business travellers it's the company.

For many diplomatic or political travellers it's us, the taxpayers!

From what I've seen, read and enquired about airmiles, I feel that any restriction that may or may not be made will only apply to those who, perhaps, started saving them a few years ago, stopped saving, and now their accounts are virtually dead.
