Highlights

  • Airlines in an alliance don’t have complete information about frequent flyer program (FFP) members and their travel details.
  • Fraudsters usually exploit this gap in information to cheat airlines.
  • Given the number of fraudulent miles being claimed and the ease with which they can be redeemed, the FFP stands to lose quite a bit due to mileage fraud.
