One thing to note is that FAs don’t get paid anything until the doors of the aircraft are closed. All that smiling at you as you board and de-board the plane are “free” to the airline.

Several people have commented on the idea of simply buying 2 DP bottles and photographing them over and over, or even just photographing DP bottles in the store. It’s unclear if this would work, but this Dr. Pepper fan isn’t going to try…I’d rather buy and drink the 10 bottles of soda.

Some date pairs in February through June.
These low fares are available on several carriers, including Air Canada, American, British Airways, Finnair and United.

According to this post, the surface in an airport with the most germs per square unit is…the touch screen on the checkout device in the Departures area.
In a test, the self-checkin screens at an airport averaged 254,000 units of germ contamination. That was over 10x the number of germs on the armrest of a seat at a gate, or the button on a drinking fountain.
And the toilet seat? It had less than 200 units…only one thousandth the level on the check-in screen.
Check the American Airlines website for this low round-trip airfare. Dates March/April/May.
