A Humorous Look At First Class Travel (For The Rest Of Us)

For some people in the points/miles/travel world, flying First Class is an everyday occurrence to the point where it’s no big deal to them. Maybe they have a bajillion miles because they churn credit cards and know how to spend well or something like that. Or maybe they’re fortunate enough to be able to spend the ridiculous amount of money airlines ask for a First Class seat. Or maybe their company is willing to foot that bill. Perhaps they’re able to pull First Class every once in a great while, with careful frequent flyer mile savings. Or perhaps they’re like most of us who might get to glance at the First Class section while walking to Coach, but that’s as close as we get.

Welp, for the rest of us, here’s a funny (and clean!) video of a “only see First Class as they pass by it” passenger during his very first experience in First Class, as well as after he landed:

I’m Not A Risk Taker But I Had To Give This One A Try

When it comes to earning and redeeming points and miles, my practice model might be described as low risk and moderate reward. I’m not going to go out and spend a bunch of money to try and earn miles with a plan that may or may not work. I’ll grind away earning the easy to acquire points and strategically use them where they’ll be the most valuable. In other words, I’m pretty boring.

That’s not to say we don’t fly to some amazing places in comfort, like during our trip to Australia and Japan. That’s not because I’m lucky, I just know the odds of getting the flights I want and make sure to have the miles to jump when they become available. I’ll set alerts and check daily (or more often) to see if anything changed, and patiently wait. Well, maybe not patiently.

So why then did I transfer a combination of 152,000 Amex Membership Rewards and Citi ThankYou points just for a chance to be able to book an award ticket?  Because when you even have the chance to knock off a bucket list flight on one of the most amazing planes out there, you just have to give it a shot.
