British Airways

The great thing about this airline was that every year they gave the agency six free tickets to anywhere in the world.

I went to India, got Delhi belly, was off-loaded on the flight back to the UK because of all the pilgrims making the Hajj (trip to Mecca), but did get to have afternoon tea with Jack Nicholson and a lady friend in some Somerset Maugham-type colonial hotel with verandahs, acres of beautifully tended gardens, and slowly revolving fans and waiters.
