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

If one has to ask if telling lies is unethical, you should just move on. Karma will dictate your punishment for being unethical.

I don’t think that there is any doubt that telling lies is unethical, the more burning question for me is whether one needs to adopt ethical behaviour when dealing with organisations whose ethics have been proven to be less than perfect on many occasions.

Personally, I’m a great believer in reciprocity and feel no need to adopt a position or tone of moral superiority, when dealing with any parties who display poor standards of probity.
