Am I late to this?  :D

Truth is that I always thought about taking my wife out for Pizza and ending up in Rome. But the only way that such a surprise, to that extent, is possible is if you can be the second..

..I think your the first person in the world, that got someone to go a air plane without them thinking that they were gonna actually fly it..

Gotta start taking her on dates to them lounges..  8)

To get my wife interested in sitting and watching planes take-off and land will (would) take a tremendous array of perks at whatever lounge we are doing this from. Maybe some refundable BA tickets would be a start :)

..that kosher food option is really for passengers only flying British Airways and not elsewhere..

We might also want to think about introducing DDSC (DansDealSpouseClub) in which Mrs. AJK can represent and show the tremendous value of DDF (as opposed to the "supposed" obsession us DDF'ers have with this place).

My wife's been saying for a long time that there should be a DDF wives' support group...

Another DDFer's wife said the same to me last Shabbos. Maybe if he sees this he'll put your wives in touch. :D

Haha my wife thinks I'm nuts too. She called me today to ask me (for the 5th time this week) what card she's supposed to be using. And I quote: "Chase has too many blue cards, it's too confusing." But on the other hand, she does enjoy the free vacations  :)

At least she's trying :)

Threaten to make em fly coach. That usually helps their memory to use the right card and go through the mall kick in.

5 years ago Mimi used to giggle at flying J/F saying how as a kid she never understood who the folks up front were.
Now I don't think she would fly long-haul if coach was the only option...
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I'd gladly fly coach.

... when it's domestic or the long-haul is something akin to the $300 TLV tickets.

Hmm, please think it over.

 Last time when there was a price mistake to TLV for $400 I booked tickets right away.

....Then I started imagining, 12 hours in stinky economy? Me? And quickly canceled it the next morning after dreaming how I sit next to a fat woman for 12 hours and every time I need the bathroom I hear her saying fuc* him while Im sweating like a rotten pig.

No, I can't see my self sitting in coach. Besides short -haul.

Don't know what to tell you. Twice in as many years I've flown to TLV in the back of the bus, and I never pay for domestic first.
