First, 1997 called and wants its picture of GLeff back. Second, when you remorselessly ignore your own personal preferences to push credit cards (is it unfair to mention Southwest and IHG here despite Gary's clear distaste for those programs yet love for their credit cards--so long as he gets fees for the referrals?), how much of a jump is it to ignore the site that helped get you a name in this business, does not appear to have ever done anything wrong to you other than the criticism offered in this forum, and which tends to break the news that is discussed in the forum you helped found in the hopes of making money you couldn't make here?

Very interesting. I understand he has his new business (MP) to push but completely ignoring FT, which led to where he is today, is just silly.

At least Lucky included FT in his list.

FT has added manufactured spend and information desk

It's the most recent picture they could find where he wasn't wearing airline pajamas.
