Seems the airline might have a point - why would he use fake names to book if he wasn't trying to pull something over on them

Nothing nefarious. Because he didnt know who would be riding on his guest pass at the time he made reservations. It didnt matter WHO was riding on the guest pass that he paid an extra $150,000 for.

I wish these articles were not written so poorly. Did he use fake names or the names of the passengers he tried to help. Why would he even need to use a fake name if had unlimited miles? It doesn't make sense.

Fancy that, an article with actual detail. I feel spoiled. Anyway, I still support him. He didn't travel under fraudulent names he just wanted to keep his companion seat open so he could fly with anyone or give out free flights to those in need.

Another bad headline. He didn't use lose the pass for flying too much, he lost it for using fake names. Way to go HP.

I agree. I really like HuffPo but sometimes these headlines are wildly misleading.

The fake placeholder name was the excuse.
He was really grounded for flying too much.
09:17 AM on 05/14/2012
He was in the wrong unless the fine print of the contract didn't require that only he could fly on the unlimited pass. I feel pretty sure though that it would, or at least limit it in some way.

"Rothstein, then living in Chicago, bought his AAirpass for $250,000, plus a companion ticket for $150,000 more.

He bought TWO passes.

I was on his side until I read he was using his pass to get everyone and their brother free tickets.

The deal was you, sir, could fly unlimited...not the entire population of the Upper East Side.

Actually the deal was for him and any one other person in the world (except OBL).
He paid $150K for a guest pass.

When a person uses false information to give away free flights to others, that person has abused the deal.

A deal is a deal, but he as much as anyone should know, so is the fine print.

I was with him until I saw that he was using it indiscriminately to fly others about on trips he was not himself making. 

Get in line and buy a ticket like the rest of us.

Why? It provides no further illumination to my point. Fine print is fine print. He must understand deals. If he booked using false names ... the airline looks within its apparent rights. That is the ruling of the judge, and I trust his perspective, insofar as he would surely have the air line agreement in front of him.

double dipping on frequent flyer miles that he doesn't pay for is wrong ---

The headline is misleading. It seems clear his pass was revoked due to fraudulent use. He didn't fly too much, it was all the people he booked tickets for that flew too much. No sympathy for a cheat.

If he thought he was in the right, why was he using false names?

Yeah I dont get why use fake names if you're flying free anyway?
09:07 AM on 05/14/2012
I realize I'm a little slow but why would he use fake names. If he's got a ticket for life why use another name?

He's booking tickets for other people. You gotta read the article, not just the headline.
