Poll: Which Option Would You Choose — Economy Class With Cash or Premium Class?
I asked five days ago whether or not these nine perks of premium cabin travel were worth the extra frequent flier loyalty program miles — or the extra money, for that matter — but from a different perspective, FlyerTalk member baccarat_king posted an interesting question earlier today about whether you would choose to travel as a passenger in economy class with cash or premium class:
I always ponder (I’m a small business guy, everything on my dime including all my travel); if your company gave the options :
(a) they pay $6400 business class ticket
(b) they pay $2000 economy ticket, and give your $1500 “cash.”
Which would you take?
I would not even think about it, as I would choose option…
…no. I will not reveal it right now — although you could probably guess which option I would choose.
Rather, I would like to know which option you would choose. Please participate in the poll shown below; as well as post your thoughts in the Comments section as to which option you chose and why.
Although baccarat_king posted that “I just can’t fathom spending (mine or my companies) money when the Delta One fare is north of $5000”, the typical mindset of some managers or business owners is that if the employee or contractor is willing to fly as a passenger in the economy class cabin on a long-haul flight, why pay them extra to do it?
By the way, TravelZork is a weblog written from the perspective of a person residing in The Netherlands as an elite level Medallion member of the Delta Air Lines SkyMiles frequent flyer loyalty program; and he is very passionate about casino loyalty programs, as well as the history of Atlantic City and baccarat in the United States — and baccarat_king writes articles for that weblog.
