Is Flying First Class all it’s Cracked Up To Be?

We get a lot of sideways looks in our daily lives when we tell people that we only travel in first class.

As the old adage goes, he who smelt it, dealt it. The problem is that on most of the planes, there are dozens of people dealing it at the same time.

First Class Recap: Senior Discounts, Australia Tips, and Disney Cruises

So Long Senior Discount While I am nowhere near the age to start thinking about senior discounts, here’s one benefit I won’t be able to enjoy anymore when the time comes. Apparently the national parks have upped the senior citizen lifetime pass, Senior Pass, for a whopping $80.
