We should all have goals when they travel.
Me, I’d like to travel to every continent (I only lack Australia). I’d like to visit every country on the globe (I’m
quite a bit further off on this count). I’d like to learn another two languages (say, French and Arabic). Aaaaand I’d
like to bring about world peace, have breakfast with extra-terrestrials and prevent earthquakes with my mind. So
Goals are good. But what about this guy’s goal?
Marc Tacchi is taking the
notion of a frequent flier to new, um, heights. Tacci is trying to accumulate one million air mile credits
before the end of November.
Why and how? Well, Tacchi is a commercial cargo pilot, and two weeks ago he decided to take Air Canada up on its
North America Unlimited Pass offer. The offer costs $3,500 a month and allows unlimited travel to more than
100 destinations in North America. But keep in mind that credits do NOT equal miles. That makes his task quite a bit
easier. As he puts it: “I’m flying about 7,500 miles or points a day, but I hold super-elite status so it multiplies
out at 2.75. I’m doing 19,000 points a day.” Cheating, perhaps? Yeah, I think so too.But a goal’s a goal.
