    I just caught some old wrap up show from last week where he talks about getting kicked off a plane to Kansas City. He would have to be in the moo moo class for that to happen?! Is Howie not paying Gary enough to fly first or what? Sad.

    Monkeys aren't allowed in first class. They throw too much shit.

    I don't think Gary was ever "Fly First Class" rich.

    He has a lot of money, but it went to that massive house, and for his childrens' college fund.

    Besides, I think you only should fly first class if you're obscenely rich.

    Otherwise, why spend thousands of dollars for a flight that's only a few hours?

    Does Gary even make a million a year?

    First class to MCI is probably $1500 round trip maybe at most. If he is going to hang out at the All Star game in style I would have expected him to at least spend a few extra bucks and fly first. That's just me I guess. And I am shocked that he is not making major bank. I figured with all this time with Howie and his association with the show he was making close to what Robin makes, ie at least low 7 figures a year. I mean Howie just banked a half a billion pre tax dollahs, he should have made sure Gary would at least make enough to retire on, somewhere over $10 million after the first contract expired. But I am generous and reasonable what do I know.

    Gary gets paid in Sirius stock. He's lucky that he could afford coach and not have to ride in the cargo hold.

    I think he was in coach because he flew down with other people. So they all sat together.

    He can certainly afford to go 1st class.

    I think the real reason he was thrown off that plane because he is so brutally ugly. he was probably upsetting the other passengers.

    i fly all the time, probably average 2-3 a month and frankly i think very few people who sit in first class on regional flights actually pay full first class price..mostly frequent flyers who upgrade

    but yeah it does seem odd he wouldnt spend the money

    Gary doesn't fly that often and probably doesn't have many FF miles. Still, if I had his money I would never fly coach. He was with other people so I guess that's the reason. You have to be a real bum to fly coach. Shitty cramped seats and screaming babies.

    It's a big enough difference to just do it if one can afford it and I thought he could. I mean no waiting with the other idiots to get on the plane, priority baggage handling so you aren't waiting, free booze so you can kick off your supposed guy weekend, etc. etc.. Just saying.

    This has to be it. I just checked and its $750 to fly round trip down there in the first class cabin. That should be peanuts to Gary.

    The last time I was going to Vegas, I had a 5am flight out of Columbus. They were offering a $100 first class upgrade and I turned it down. Is it ever supposed to be that cheap?

    Booey didn't get those noine bathrooms by tossing away money on first class tickets. He took the kids too, right? Waste of money for a guy who will be unemployed in three years.

    That's a pretty good deal IMO. In my experience it's usually at least $250 to upgrade.

    He said it was a guys weekend. He also said a guy from the Mets organization was flying with him and he also got booted. It sounds like they are both cheap bastards?
