A neat documentary about the quest for frequent flyer miles. Much of the filming was done at last spring’s Flyertalk Moderator meeting in Orlando. Sadly I was in Thailand at the time and missed it.
Perhaps not Up in the Air, but it’s great to watch. I especially enjoyed Flyertalk’s beaubo talking about getting questioned by the DEA about why he had hired several local Thais to do nothing but fly back and forth between Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai for six weeks. Not to mention Randy Petersen explaining how ‘normal’ it is to pick up and get together with friends on another continent.
[…] for awhile with Gabriel Leigh in Los Angeles last weekend. Gabriel produces a short documentary in 2009 about the quest for miles and points. […]
