    I really liked this quote, from a well-known semi-good movie.. :)
    "We're two people who get turned on by elite status. I think cheap is our starting point."
    "There's nothing cheap about loyalty."

    A friend pointed out another class of service Space A. Although I'd still take Space A over Southworstwest.

  12. PIA used to have a business class fare from HKG-YYZ for $2,000. I really wanted to try it as there was a free stopover in Pakistan. I was told the airline is substandard however I fly AC i explained i know what horrid is.

    PIA First Class used to be really excellent. I have not flown them for years and i suspect they are not so good any more.
