Not so much as the price, but the price for the crappy cheap stuff is what frustrates us.

Ironically from the guy with over 4,500 posts. And yes, I counted. That's about one post every single day for the 12 years you've been on APC

My brother-in-law (who used to travel extensively for work) once asked me why airline people "expect to live their life 10% off". I didn't have a good answer for him. But I like the discounts!

Im impressed that anyone is complaining about the coffee rates in IDA and BIS when the runways are under construction (BIS) or the runways magically change overnight with a rediculous ODP (IDA).

For the same reason he jams himself into a 17" wide seat for 29.99 less.

Its call multi wealth accumulation programs.

Part of the discount is deposited into the tip jar, and part of the discount is deposited into my tip jar at home.

Nah... I put the entire amount into the tip jar.
