I tend to avoid business class even when entitled to it except for overnight flights, but being entitled to business class travel on a government board the computer always requires me to explain myself. And though it has an option where you can say that you’re entitled to fly at a higher class, it doesn’t have an option to allow you to explain that you’re happy enough with a lower class fare. So much so that the computer decided to take a couple of hours out of my life and nearly three times as much off the government in order to send me business class. So I had to tell the system that I was overriding it, though, since none of the pull down reasons were the reason I was doing what I was doing, I picked “LPF/IBF ACCEPTED “. No doubt a reader can tell me what that means, but I had no idea. At least I wasn’t telling a lie as I would have been by choosing any of the other options which I knew were wrong. Seemed to do the trick.
