I know a guy that's been doing it for 35 years, on _very_ long flights.I find that there are a hell of a lot of people who are in international sales for 2 years, there is almost nobody who sticks around for his whole career.

yeah, I worked opposite a consultant from one of the big companies who was working for a large customer of mine in india (one of the large consulting firms actually gave several people on speculation for an unlimited time to my customer thinking that they could get future business out of them, and then didn't get the business) who flew only first class - he earned more than a million miles on LH one year. The most I ever earned in one year was a little more than 500K.I primarily flew first class, all those miles helped make it possible and I was upgraded alot, if not, I used miles to upgrade.
I actually haven't done that many transpacific flights, many 4-5. most of the time I go the other way. but I went to Nigeria a few months ago, coach, and that was an experience. and then back from Jo'burg to NY, coach. I had a cramp in my leg that I was worried about after that flight.I refuse to fly in coach for transpacific flights, I learned my lesson on that, I am absolutely ineffective for the 24 hours immediately following my arrival and it's much more cost effective for me to relax in first class and avoid those issues
Glaser Designs makes nice bags, thoughtfully designed and well made. Not cheap, but I've used their briefcase since B-school graduation (almost 8 years now), and a few of their carry0on bags. They also have a few knife-pillow-shaped inserts that can hold shirts, etc., so they don't get wrinkled in a half-empty bag. They also make one that fits into my briefcase, so I can use that as the overnight bag.Originally Posted by Concordia
