(Newser) – A man in China discovered his first-class airline ticket could get him more than just a flight. He used the voucher to score free meals and drinks nearly every day for a year—all courtesy of the VIP airport lounge. A Malaysian Chinese newspaper reports the man changed his flight itinerary more than 300 times within the year so he could partake in the VIP amenities at China’s Xi'an Airport. His scam was simple: book, eat, then re-book his flight to the next day. Repeat. When the airline finally caught on, he canceled the ticket and got a refund.
