End Of The World

  1. Just in case this idiot Harold Camping is correct that the world is going to end this Saturday, how many miles do we get for the Rapture?

    You misunderstood - the rapture means you get smiles, not miles :D

    There is a 50,000 mile bonus offer for the rapture, but you need to sign up first.

    Whatever, as long as I'm upgraded on my trip to heaven, I'm happy.

    Which airline can I credit the bonus to? If I use an Amex card, do I get double bonus miles?

    Even if you're not targeted, you can always call and mention the bonus ID 52111. If the first CSR doesn't give the bonus, call again.

    I prefer to stay at Jardim Botanico, much more heavenly than HVN, but there are no miles for staying home. Even if it is rapturously delightful.;)

    Of course you're targeted, but maybe not for the one they mean!

    Just called. The CSR said they are willing to triple the bonus! Great I thought, I’ll book a flight while on the phone. The CSR mentioned no flights will be booked after Saturday since the world is ending. Am I do some sort of compensation for this inconvenience?

    Let's just hope none of us are "downgraded"...

    Be careful...the Rapture might change its Twiiter handle suddenly, at the last minute, just like an airline I can think of ;)!

    Considering this community, regardless of where I end up, if I had a choice I would be in Singapore first class (the new suites) tomorrow when the rapture hits. Unfortunately, I'll probably be spraying weeds in my yard instead.One can dream.

    Where would you want to be?

    I am perplexed by this post. I thought the Singapore A380 suites WERE the rapture! There're very hard to get, cost a huge amount, require compliance with lots of rules, but once you get there you're in heaven!

    Good point, I guess that may really be the MP definition of the rapture.

    I guess if I weren't actually pulling weeds, I'd just settle for Emirates First before getting twinkled over to SQ. Best of luck everyone! YMMV.

    He's put up 1,200 billboards around the country announcing this. This leads to two important questions:
    1. Did the billboard companies make him pay in advance?
    2. Did he pay with a credit card that earns points?

    Wait wait... is it today? Is that Eastern time because it's already midnight here and I don't see anything. No flying cars, no aliens, no death rays, no Jesus, nothing.

    Maybe it's midnight Pacific. Although it would have made sense it was GMT. Or is it like some random time like "3:22PM" or something?
