I think that they forgot or I missed it in all the literature...this card pays for your Global Pass card as well..which is about $100.00 and is sooo worth it if you are an international traveler coming back to a busy airport. I don't think much about their much touted companion ticket...first you must book for a full fare..actually it's more than full fare it's the fare you purchase that is 100% refundable..and no matter what sale is going on you won't get a sales price...bottom line it ends up costing you the same as buying two separate tickets on sale...still for the really well heeled it may be a convenience. The jury (my jury) is still out on all of those fancy lounges..the international route that I fly doesn't really have them and besides if I am flying Business Class I get access to them regardless..

it really isn't over rated seeing how 450 is a small price to pay for the benefits. If you travel a lot, you get to show up the airport early and enjoy complimentary lounge and really enjoy your flight experience.

In my experience, the Platinum phone service is ANYTHING BUT. You call the number on the back of your card, and, after hearing 7 times how they will tape it (I hope they also listen to it) and 5 times being forced to restart and enter your number, you hang up out of sheer frustration... ANd this happens more often than not.
