Isn't that always the case, rich first?
I'm more used to the rich paying for preferential service. This takes us back to the feudal "caste" system.
Reminds me when celebs insist on getting invites to bars & restaurants...... like if they could not afford to pay their own way....
Just another variation of status- I get status faster if I pay for J fares... if I don't want to pay, it takes longer.
Is this really a story? Nothing to see here, keep moving
Except here it's just because you were born to the right parents. Quite a difference.
It doesn't say anything about having the right parents. It just says if you are a "wealthy traveler". People still make money without inheriting it. Can you say Facebook?
Well, if you have an issue with my statement, yours is just as problematic. Statistically speaking, parents matter more that Facebook-like company creating capability. And again, the way it is presented, these are not paying people, just rich ones going somewhere.
I am shocked, SHOCKED, to learn that billionaires fly into the same air terminals as us mere mortals and stand in the same immigration lines. What's the world come to?
Check their tax bills and living expenditures. They are paying more than most people realize.
As someone who manages money for some celebrities, I can tell you that some of them probably can't afford to pay their own way.
The majority of wealth is lost within three generations. Most of your super rich did not inherit what they have.
I can believe the living expenditures part (but why do I care?)... but taxes? They aren't releasing those, are they?
only if running for a high political office
We've read the same history books apparently. Too bad they are not always correct
Hey, it's probably better for business; besides, who would you imagined wind up getting preferential treatment? The really poor... those with bad hygiene... I mean, really, this is not even a story. I have no issue with this (though I do now need a new plan to become super-rich; it wasn't really worth all the extra effort before, but if it'll get me through queues faster, then it must be time to grease those palms and get to work).
My kids are lucky their parents buy J to get status faster- best of both worlds, correct?
Works for me.
