I was in the audience in Colorado Springs 15 years ago when frequent flyer guru Randy Petersen proposed to his then-girlfriend Julie Armstrong in front of an audience of loyalty program executives at the Freddie Awards.
That put an end to single days for a man who had once been American Woman‘s ‘bachelor of the month’ because his tens of millions of miles could take a woman anywhere.
Even in today’s devalued world frequent flyer miles are still sexy. It just takes more than half a million miles, especially in the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, to set hearts ablaze.

Don’t get me wrong, Qantas partners with Emirates which offers on board showers in first class on their Airbus A380 aircraft. And they do promote “Max. 2 occupants in shower” This past summer a woman redeemed miles for Emirates first class and posted ‘NSFW’ shower selfies on Reddit.
