see how quickly you can learn the three-letter codes for the ATC zones. maybe we can have a contest.

Learned about Cleveland Center, why it's called ZOB, then about how it dealt with UA93, which led to http://www.archives.gov/research/9-11/staff-report.pdf

Fascinating
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Skyfaring by Mark Vanhoenacker has been discussed elsewhere on DDF. I'll admit to be slightly disappointed with it, as the wonderful NY Times feature kinda gives away the best parts. Nevertheless, this is an amazing book for any aviation nerd.

Or 10k to get such a card.
  Does the card work to get into any lounges , upgrades, status? Or you would need to do that all on your American Express account which has this card added? Pretty worthless otherwise.

They want you to give them all your CC info and they will give a new copy of your card

True but on a black card with your info being etched into and you can use your card while it being any random card number your using.
   Like the idea, as many times they say no American Express cards and I can get a guy to make a Master card with my amex info that would be pretty cool. ( meaning this scenario wouldn't work as I'm trying to avoid having American Express credit card, I want something that can make a MasterCard with my amex info.)

Noone ever said not, yes amex has lots of fees and are very tough on the sellers.
   I've heard first-hand from people who process charges with American Express in their store.

They must have learnt from Apple that you can make money off a worthless card as long as it looks cool
