    Not all that much on TSA but clearly a component. Surprising, considering this is on a fare watch page in the travel industry biased USA Today.

    I have somewhere around 170,000 miles saved up with AA. Next month we depart on a road trip from Texas to South Florida, back up to Disney, back down to South Florida and then home.

    I enjoy flying, heck I flew for a good part of my Navy career, but TSA has made commercial air travel undesirable.

    I have double that saved up with Alaska, but I haven't been on a plane since the sexual assaults started up. I still do my usual route, I just do it via car and train.

    I gave over 180,000 on Continental to the USO. I'm avoiding air travel except in mandatory circumstances. One trip so far in nearly two years, which is quite a drop from the 45 in 2008.

    I have 500k I'm sitting on but I have been transferring them to other programs to use for hotel stays and such. I have a trip next week and I'm looking forward to the trip just not the air portion.

    If you see headlines for a smurf going to jail or landing in the ICU you can bet it was me.
