I’ll only need a round 2,000,000 miles – so perhaps I’d better leave it to more frequent flyers, like …

    A question being asked on the forums is whether flights on Virgin Galactic would earn Flying Club miles. Theoretically they might – just not many!

    It would be nice is Virgin weren’t such an awful airline. Cattle, and Business were both quite horrid experiences for me… Mind you flying *is* horrid. Even when someone else is paying….

    By the time the average human could scrape up 2000000 miles of frequent flyer miles they would be toooooo old to take the G-Forces on take off…. imagine what would happen to a wrinkly face at 3-4 G’s… Yuck!

    Found an alternative way up there at They have a treasure hunt, the winner gets a free flight on the Galactic.

    I think I will try clicking my way to space ;>)
