    So, we just started the process of getting one of our kids braces. When I told Mrs. HotAUfans how much they were going to be... her response:

    "That's about 3 trips to Temptation... :icon_sad:"

    Haha not just us then...
    "Shall we upgrade to premium seats on the plane?"
    (quick mental arithmetic)
    "Or shall we just go cattle class, then with the money we save we're already halfway to the next trip...."

    Upgrade

    We've worked it out already ..upgrade for free...did it both ways in November (didn't half piddle off our companions on the flight) looking to doing it again in two weeks (I hope), pays towards another week in TTR !!!!
    Oh, just realised Steve's on our flight out, sorry Steve we'd much rather join you :liebe011:

    Care to share? We scammed it last April (plus fast-track security & priority luggage), but it's not happening any more with TC, strictly cash for seats.

    LOL, define "fun"... we have had to learn different classifications of it. As I'm sure you understand, Auburn football is sacrosanct for us - so it's a bit like apples and oranges.

    The two will never conflict because they're mutually exclusive in our eyes.

    I find myself doing that mainly with other vacation options. I love Vegas more than anyone else I know (14 trips in 2012-13) but most of those were for "business". The nature of my business has changed so I'm not making that trip anymore, so I don't go. Its just impossible to justify spending on airfare alone for 2 what 3 days at Temptation costs. Anytime we want to fly anywhere now I immediately translate that in my head to "nights in Mexico" cost!
