This reminds me of the olives...
I have been aware of the plight of airline workers since I worked in mortgages back in 2004, I had a few clients who were always afraid of losing their job and forced into early retirement.
Their biggest fear was losing their benefits, not health insurance and sick pay, their flying benefits. As Delta Airlines employees, they were allowed to fly anywhere for free as long as there was room on a flight. If there was an empty seat, they could take it.
Many of them were ready to retire but didn't, all they wanted to do when they retired was travel and the only way for them to afford it was with their free (mostly first class) travel benefits.
