Minnesota-based Sun Country Airlines has launched a re-designed version of its frequent flyer program, the Star Tribune reports. It now rewards members based on how much they spend, instead of how far they travel. The new Ufly Rewards program also allows up to 10 members to combine their points toward free tickets.

"We believe that this program and 'pooling' in particular, provides a huge benefit to our loyal customers," Drew Hack, director of marketing and sales, told the newspaper.
