Thinking ahead, a woman in her mid-90s has raised the question of whether the mileage points she has accumulated with a major airline can be used for her final flight to her home state, after her demise.

The answer, according to an airline spokesperson contacted by Dear Abby, is no. Because she will then be considered "cargo," rather than a passenger, her mileage points idea won't fly.
