    Beginning of the End for Generous Hotel Rewards?

    While travel overall is rebounding nicely from the recession-dampened demand of the past three years, it isn't doing so uniformly.

    The airlines, for example, are now routinely filling their planes to 80 percent capacity, even during off-peak periods.

    More importantly, they're flying profitably. The largest U.S. airlines posted combined profits of $2.3 billion for 2010, and $4 billion when one-time costs associated with mergers and the like aren't counted, according to the Air Transport Association, an airline trade group. That compares to a loss of $26 billion in 2008 and 2009.

    Airline rewards have sucked for some time now. Too many restrictions and too few available seats

    It would be a shame to lose hotel rewards. They have been a good source of free rooms
