Don't tell me you have forgotten the year 2000.
No one should ever be doing anything goofy to get a mile, ... [Flyers] shouldn't be charging on an airline credit card that's charging them 14 or 15 percent interest, or 20 percent interest, because you can never win that game.
Your life gets geometrically worse the more you travel for business. The truth is that you often end up eating a bad hamburger after a long day of travel--that's if you're lucky enough to find room service open after 11 p.m. A child would only be an unwanted distraction.
They are almost like the airline of the 1950s and 1960s that viewed flying as an experience, not an endurance test.
