THE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS AND GROUND AND TERMINAL STAFFING PERSONNEL MAY NOT MAKE ALOT OF MONEY. BUT THE PERKS CAN ADD THOUSANDS OF STERLING/DOLLARS TO THEIR PAY/VALUE WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY INCOME TAX ON SUCH FREE OR VERY VERY DISCOUNTED TIX.. AND, OF COURSE, FAMILY MEMBERS FLY (WITH AIRLINE PERSONNEL) AT SAME LOW RATE.
YEARS AGO, IT WAS NOTHING FOR A TWA FA (STEWARDS/STEWARDESSES THEN) TO FLY TO PARIS FOR A 1 DAY VACATION (FLYING FIRST CLASS OF COURSE) FROM THE U.S. COST PERHAPS $25.00 IN TAXES. OF COURSE, THEIR HOTEL
WAS AT A DISCOUNTED RATE TOO. PEOPLE WANT THEIR CAKE AND TO EAT IT TOO. HOPE WILLIE DOES NOT GIVE IN…. BUT HE WILL.
