"US Airways and TAM leave Star Alliance." That's a depressing email subject from TAP's frequent flyer program. I knew it was coming, but it feels like time just flew by and now my flight options are curtailed. Even worse, US Airways had just created a pleasant experience for coach passengers so flying them wasn't a chore like when they first joined the Star Alliance. Avianca and Copa can cover for TAM, so no major loss there.
