  1. My craziest mileage run: On a BCN-CDG fare where you could connect anywhere IB/BA published a fare, did four back to back weekends of BCN-LHR-SIN-SYD-SIN-LHR-CDG- (and the reverse).

  2. Are the benefits of the higher status THAT ONE ACTUALLY RECEIVES worth the otherwise better-spent dollars and hours of one’s life? If you can say yes, knock yourself out. For me, I don’t see it.
