My company is on a deal with an Italian cstomer-to-be, and I am working on something that needs a lot of on site testing, so I've flown to Rome 5 times since January. Usually, on a week notice, although last week it was : "okay, get your suitcase, you leave at 7pm tonight".
Unfortunately, no business class on those beautiful babies :

That's the one I flow on at least 5 times (did not take regs on the first trips)
Unfortunately, sometimes it's not flying. Yesterday, it was more like "take your car, drive to Italy (I work ~120 km away from the border), and do the testing. You don't need to go to the customer for that"
Sigh. The deal with this customer is almost complete, proably no more trip to Rome for me.
Fortunately, I've just learned that a new deal is forming with a Spanish customer. Malaga, here I come (unfortunately, Easyjet serves this destination. No mileage for me from those flights)
