There used to be a time when I spent a fair proportion of my life on airplanes flying to one dumb shoot/meeting/pitch after another, scattered all over the globe. Consequently I ran up gazillions of frequent flyer miles on just about every fucking airline around (some of which don’t exist anymore.) So, when I flew on my own dime, instead of the BDA’s or BDC’s filthy lucre, I could get upgrades and all the free booze you could pass out on. Unfortunately, those days are over, between “black-out days” and “those flights no longer qualify,” you are fucked… But now, news that Delta are going to base their rewards on the price of the ticket, rather than miles, means it’s fucking over permanently. Take the bus, ‘cos flying is fucked!
Remember "Lucky Airlines?" Fucking Yeah!!!
