  1. Of course, I just trade 5k orphaned Flying Blue miles about to expire for some concert tickets in Paris that I probably never use….

  2. So Garry I will an one way ticket from MLE to CMB, will you prefer BA over SriLankda’s business class? Can you give me any suggestion?

  3. Picture change? The recent picture of you coming up that elevator is a real winner. Go with that one.
