Usually I’ll leave posting the most interesting FlyerTalk threads to The Gate, but this thread in particular just cracked me up.
Check out this “offer” someone made to a FlyerTalk member on a recent flight from Frankfurt to San Francisco on United. On one hand the guy is a total, complete, 100% douche. But at the same time, if you’re going to go for a sleazy sales pitch, damnit, this guy had absolute perfect execution.
Sadly enough, I bet it actually works sometimes.
