That sounds like a good way for someone like me that won't fly anywhere to spend my tax free pension lump sum. I've no intention of just spending it on ordinary day to day living, it'll have to be blown on something extraordinary.
20 years ago I travelled to Pakistan for an eye-opening 6 weeks of travel and charity work.
we got the cheapest flight possible, which turned out to involve four different airlines and, as we found out only after taking off, a three day stopover in Moscow.
We were travelling in January, so were dressed for a UK winter, but were not too well bundled up because it would be 25°C in Karachi. Unfortunately it was -25°C in Moscow, luckily I had a pair of Levi 501s which I used to barter for a nice warm coat...
