Apple buys 50 business class tickets to Shanghai every day*

Philip Elmer-DeWitt

The company spent nearly five times more flying United’s friendly skies last year than Facebook or Google.


MacRumors, first to spot LAflyer’s tweet Friday afternoon, posted a helpful list of airport codes:

1. Shanghai (PVG)
2. Hong Kong (HKG)
3. Taipei (TPE)
4. London (LHR)
5. South Korea (ICN)
6. Singapore (SIN)
7. Munich (MUC)
8. Tokyo (HND)
9. Beijing (PEK)
10. Israel (TLV)

My take: Showing the rest of the world where your best customer does business is a curious way to reward a frequent flier.

*On average.
