This is just unbelievable:
“Compare that to one who scrapes in to short haul business class and hopes the product won’t be improved in case the fares won’t go up and he then has to fly economy. That smacks of someone who is barely scraping by and may be vulnerable. No doubt in economy he would lose his gold card too and possibly not even get a silver one.”
Seriously? Someone who is able to fly busines class regardless of whether it is discounted is not is scraping by? And then the person you post about is to refered to by you as pompous and arrogant?
I said this before and I shall say it again, pot and kettle springs to mind.
Try spending some time with people who really are on the minimum wage, perhaps the same person who cleaned that very same First Seat you sat, slept and ate in on your last trip. I really don’t think flying Club Europe over another airline carrier’s business product is scraping by.
Also you don’t clearly explain what you mean by vulnerable?
