RE: Airline Employee Travel Benefits

Get a job with a hotel company. Room charges are usually always more than airfare. Also you have a guraanteed room rather than a wait-and-hope you get on a flight.

How much of this is real and how much of this is making sure they get the best deal out of Airbus is the question. British Airways was one of the airlines urging Boeing to move forward with the 748i and in the end said 'Never mind'. No buyer wants just one offer on the table.
