Default Re: A New Dragon

I well know those experiences. Towards the end of my business career in the corporate world I was flying 80-100,000 miles a year. All first class and sometimes use of our primary corporate aircraft if the CEO didn't have it blocked out as he did consider it his personal transportation. First class hotels and such but after several years it all blurred together as a have to and I ended up despising travel, even for pleasure.

After I left the corporate world I consulted for a few years for that CEO who had also left, same travel pattern only worse, leave on Monday morning and home Friday night until the project was completed. That CEO said the only thing he really missed about life as a top corporate officer was the privilege of general aviation facilities.
