We have another guest blogger this week, namely Gary Leff. Gary is CFO at the Institute for Humane Studies and Mercatus Center. When it comes to aviation, luxury travel, and loyalty marketing, he is without peer. Inside Flyer magazine called him "one of five experts to listen to" on business travel. The Financial Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post, and The New York Times all have promoted his work. And he’s Senior Moderator at airline megasite Flyertalk.com.
Gary usually blogs at View from the Wing (http://blogs.flyertalk.com/blogs/viewwing/), which Gridskipper advises "true fanatics" to consult when seeking an airline upgrade. He tells me that until a short Sydney-Melbourne segment in June, he hadn’t flown coach in
over two years.
