...great article, but as a veteran of the travel world in the 70s, 80s and 90s (I usually spent between 200 to 300 days a year on the road) being rewarded with more opportunities to schlep more cameras, more strobes, more cases and bags onto another airplane for free always struck me as somewhat sadistic. It would have been a bit more... rewarding, for lack of a better term, to get a weekend cabin somewhere remote and quiet enough that airplanes never flew over it...

There is a possibility that I used generic aluminum foil when I made my hat today... I get all my knowledge from the Enquirer.. I just can't trust Rolling Stone after the Dr. Hook cover.

What??? You mean to cast doubt upon the credibility of the National Enquirer? So I suppose you don't believe there are alien beings in captivity at area 51 either. And what about Bill Clinton's 87 illegitimate children, and his half-sister Hillary? Denier!

People complain about ever-changing loyalty programs and how frequent fliers are offended by it. The reason these programs have become more restrictive is because of people like this guy.
