Q) Who is the world’s most frequent flyer?

A) Its Mr Stuker, who admits he is very competitive and likes breaking records, even if they are his own. ‘Some people play golf five days a week; I love flying. It’s not just the destination, it’s the journey,”

He’s flies 200-250 days a year, has been on 10,000 flights and has over 21 million air miles to his name.

He clearly revels in his semi-royal status with United and talks giddily of all the perks he receives.

Q) How airlines do cost cutting?

A) In 1987 American Airlines, eager to increase their margins, saved $40,000 by removing one olive from each salad served in first class. Definitely food for thought.
