OMG VK, you rock 😉
Similar situation YES, but with the Mrs. and not goodbye (hope so 😀 )
My kind of prob is:
-“Why we should fly with BA instead of Ryanair?, Ryanair goes directly and i will not give 200 pounds extra (economy, i don’t even dare to tell her to fly business at shorthaul) because you want to achive Gold Status (Don’t even remind her the stop at LHR)…You are an idiot, you could buy many longhaul Business class tickets only with the money you could earn from that..”
The thing is that i cannot give a proper explanation, can you help me VK?
