THREE CHAIRS FOR LUFTHANSA ...!
Cheers erupted aboard Lufthansa Flight #456 to Los Angeles today as word spread that Lufthansa is selling used aircraft seats to anyone who wants them. "What Joy!," I said to the woman sitting next to me, despite the fact that she didn't speak English, "Fourteen hours sitting in this seat somehow just doesn't seem like enough. How thrilling to know we can buy the seat and take it home!" Indeed, an ad on page 65 of Lufthansa's inflight magazine encourages folks to e-mail Juergen Rumstig (email@example.com) as soon as possible if they want to buy a seat. I didn't waste any time. "Juergen," I wrote, "Lufthansa's seats are the best in the business ... I could sit in them all day. Tell me, does your offer apply to every seat?"
