Reply To: I constantly lie to get airplane upgrades. Is that unethical?

Never lied to try and get upgrade, and to think of it I have never even asked for a free upgrade.

I did lie to get an Indian Visa once, 2 days before travel realised i did not have a visa and the consulate would only take emergency applications…I got an Indian friend to write an urgent invite about some death in the family and as we are so close i am needed urgently. I think the fact the letter was written in Hindi and I am blond blue eyed etc must have swayed that this wasnt some BS when i went for my interview….or the consulate really did not give a crap.

and there was a couple of times i continued to use a walking cane long after my knee surgery had healed just so I could use the seniors/special requirments lane crossing the border from Shenzhen to HK, it was that or wait an hour in the normal line
