This truth is even more real with AFF members - they should know in advance with the ample availability of member experiences that SC runs are almost always nonsensical. Take for example the desire of so many for such things as LifeTime Gold. To get this status you have to travel a hell of a lot. Most who earn this LTG thing are exalted members of that WP club, or higher. So the actual reward you get for many years at high level, is to be humiliated for eternity with something that is completely unappealing and far less than what you have become used to. It is incredible the power of marketing that makes such concepts seem appealing.The first comment I would make is about ‘status running’, why would anyone actually spend money to do this. Why would one put themselves through flights that do not need to be taken to gain status that is most likely over hyped/ marketed. After you have been to one F lounge they are all the same.

Is that better?
Oh my God. I have been identified! I must confess that i am on the QF payroll. Until I was found out, this lurk was rewarding, both financially and in satisfaction. It was an easy gig - every waking moment of my life I just had to tweet something like "loving the new QF economy seats - they are smaller but the moodlighting makes everything so much better". Such an easy way to earn dollars.I doubt that. Now we know who one of the paid social-media ‘fluffers’ is ...
