Conclusion

This really didn’t come up as a surprise. One could argue that the number of Asia Miles one earned for discounted economy flights on American Airlines was an anomaly.

I just wish that airlines would give proper advance notice about changes just as this. Merely switching the earning chart on one random day is not enough.
