When less is more

Business Traveller (UK/Europe Edition);Feb2011, p74
The article explores why the author does not want to be upgraded from Business to First class by airlines. One reason cited by the author is that travelers in the World Traveler Plus seats, which are sandwiched between First and Business, get off before First. Another reason mentioned by the author is that the author does not drink anything on board but water and tends not to eat, hence the superior food, service and wine become useless.
