No! I despise money! But yes, I would gladly crank some more work out at the airport bar for 2.5 hours to essentially get a free global round trip.

Why did you spend the time to type this instead of taking it?

Hell yes I would

Yes - I would then cancel the flight, take the refund and catch a train. Will still make it in about same time

How does canceling for a refund work on same day flights? I assume you'd get hit with a penalty and then refunded on your Corp card?

That flight is like 35 minutes. You could assign me that bathroom as my seat on the latter flight and I'd take it.

Duh. That’s $400/hr. Way more than we make.
