Seem to remember that the US tax authorities used to claim the airmiles accumulated on flights paid for by your employer were a taxable benefit when used

Another tough question. The airline's argue those seats have no value, as they would have gone empty otherwise. So how do you tax $0?

With my wife, I can't be sure of anything she hears in English. When I first met her way back when, she thought a cellphone was a self-phone. After thinking about it, I decided she was actually correct!

And; diverging slightly, but it has happened, at least in my experience as crew and hotels: who gets the airmiles or points? In my case I tried to join the Hotel Loyalty program of our crew hotels. It was deemed that the company financial director had paid for the rooms and therefore was entitled to the points. Nice little earner on the side for his holidays. On the other hand all my mates, who are so lucky to have a company pay for their frequent business class SH & LH tickets, earn the airmiles and lounge privileges etc. Nice little earner for them as they fly for free on holidays. Surely that would be a taxable benefit? If the CFO had an idea to keep all the airmails for themselves; wow, free tickets for life.
When I used to travel for business back in the stone age, I booked my own flights, bought my own tickets with my own credit card and then got reimbursed by the company (despite the in-house travel department). All the goodies were mine.
