"There's no such thing as a free lunch".
To everyone who has used this expression, a man from Kwong Wah Yit Poh, China, would like a word.
Airports are horrible places. Cramped conveyor belts, stale food. It's all a bit like herding cattle.
Except for the first class lounges (or so we're told). They're supposed to be sublime.
News.com.au tells the story of a man who bought a first class ticket in Xi'an airport in Shaanxi, China, with China Eastern Airlines.
He made use of the lounge, ate a delicious meal before his flight, and rescheduled it for the day following.
He did this repeatedly. Every day. He did it over 300 times in the same year.
That is, until China Eastern Airlines realised what was happening and started investigating him for rescheduling so many flights.
Then, he simply cancelled the ticket and got a full refund.
