You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Experiences vs Things
The millennial tendency to value experiences over material goods is fueling some of the demand for air travel, Bastian and others said. Older people have bucket lists; younger ones see traveling with friends as more important than buying some expensive possession. Today’s travelers want to “get that Instagram shot on top of Kilimanjaro or wherever and airlines are absolutely going to help you accomplish that,” Baker said.

Loyalty Scheme Changes
Airlines have seeded some of this demand by making major changes to loyalty programs. The carriers are focused on turning frequent-flier miles into a transactional “currency” for members to spend for things beyond award trips, such as upgrades, bag fees, cocktails in airport lounges and TSA PreCheck enrollment costs. The airlines have also begun to dynamically price award trips, raising and lowering the number of miles needed based on demand. With miles gaining “better utility” travelers have become eager to collect more of them from travel and credit card spending, Nocella said.

I thought of posting this in the GFS board, but since I'm not the seller, I didn't think it qualified.

Any DDF takers? Maybe a pool or timeshare?

At the time of writing the plane has not been sold, but the eventual proceeds will be used to help fund Mexican government efforts to reduce migration from Central America to the US, according to Reuters.


So they are paying for the wall?
