The mile high club
Are you a part of it? According to some "research" done by Switchfly, which is a "technology company that powers travel booking and loyalty redemption for the world's most popular travel brands," only 4% of Americans have admitted to being a part of the club. Men are three times more likely than women to have joined (interesting...).
But wait. There's more!
- Men between the age of 35-44 are most likely to join
- Women between the age of 45-54 are most likely to join
- And by income - those that make $100,000 or more are most likely to join
Of those three - I find the $100K figure the most interesting. Is this included in the first class ticket... package? That income bracket is certainly most likely to fly private. Maybe that's it?
Why not join?
Personally, I hate studies. So, I take "research" like this (or any kind of study, for that matter, that claims to have the answer about whether something is good or bad for you) with a grain of salt. Because the next day someone will come out with another study claiming the exact opposite. This study explained how they got the answers they did:
"This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Poll on behalf of Switchfly from November 6-10, 2014 among 2,008 adults ages 18 and older. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated."
