When Jacques Vroom heard late in the 1980s that American Airlines was selling life-time passes for unlimited first-class travel, he bought one for his company.  That launched 20 years of constant travel around the world – for work, for friends and to see his son’s college football games. But then, the airline suddenly decided to revoke the pass. The original version of this story aired June 4, 2012.
