Unlimited AAirpass a pain in AA's AAss5/10/2012
American Airlines is suing a frequent flier for "abusing" an unlimited ticket, claiming he charged folks to fly with him. Since the 1980s, Jacques Vroom has been living up to his name by taking maximum advantage of the $350,000 AAirpass he bought from American Airlines which allowed himself and a companion unlimited first-class flights anywhere, anytime. Due to the generous (ie sloppy) terms and conditions attached to the promotion, Mr Vroom (just one of 64 holders of the pass) has enjoyed nearly 40 million luxury miles, never having to worry about weather, cancellations, or anything else. He could just pre-book a slew of flights and take the ones that appealed on the day. Another golden ticket holder, Steven Rothstein, would fly from Rhode Island to Buffalo, N.Y., for a sandwich.
If you had an AAirpass, where would you fly first, and why?
