Who is TPOL kidding? Flying peasant class is for the birds. Actually the birds probably have a nicer time because they don’t have to go through TSA. While I do have my 20k AA flight on hold, I, as was the case in Mongolia, came up with a better way to go from point A to point B. Recently, I applied for a useless Delta Amex Platinum which gives 60k pesos after 2k spent. Those pesos are looking mighty attractive right now since I found a flight from the middle of nowhere to London for 62,500 + $5.60 in business on Virgin Atlantic. I can even wave to my parents as I pass through the D.
The issue is whether the flights will be there after the closing date of my statement. We shall see. But for now I’m banking on this Athens afterthought.
