My boy has his first birthday later this year and to make it a more family occasion we booked a flight today for his aunt Vinogirl using our rapidly accumulating air miles. When using air miles one still has to pay taxes etc which when totaled up adds to a fair amount. To get the most from the air miles we booked first class seats so Vinogirl can use her larger luggage allowance to fill her cases with her excellent Napa valley cab franc and other such vinous goodies. Just out of interest I later checked how much the flight would have been if I would have paid full price.....£9000....yes, that's nine thousand bloody quid!!!!!! who in the hell has that much money for a flight? for that much money I'd walk or swim to California.
