Man Uses First-Class Ticket for Year’s Worth of Free Meals
A first-class passenger scammed a Chinese airport to get free meals at the VIP lounge.By Erik Shute | January 29, 2014
A man in China discovered his first class airline ticket could get him more than just a flight. He used the voucher to score free meals and drinks nearly every day for a year — all courtesy of the VIP airport lounge.
Malaysian Chinese newspaper Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported the man changed his flight itinerary more than 300 times within the year so he could partake in the VIP amenities at China’s Xi'an Airport.
His scam was simple: book, eat, and repeat. Over and over again. See, first class ticket holders get the VIP treatment at the airport, which included a free meal at the lounge.
