Do you usually use your points to buy an upgrade on board?
Most of the time my customers pay for an Economy Extra ticket, so I usually use my points to upgrade to Business. When you are on your way to work, it is important to be able to sleep during the journey and arrive well rested.

Ten hours in Business on your way to Asia – what do you do?
I always change the time on my watch to the country I'm going to, directly when I get on board. It is not rare that I fall asleep and wake up just in time for breakfast before landing. If I'm awake, my iPad gets used quite a lot; I read, watch films and play Solitaire.
What do you prefer buying at the airport?
I usually buy good Scandinavian food when I pass through Copenhagen on my way out into the world. Serving smoked salmon is very popular in Asia! But I never buy food to bring home with me. If the refrigerator is empty, I have a good reason for going out to eat.
Of all your flights, which do you remember the most?
Wow, that’s not easy! It feels like I have spent half my life on board, but a trip I will never forget is when I flew Concorde to Washington in the 1990’s!
