The Travel Expenses Reimbursement Policy
(http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/TDF/Policies/Travel) appears to
say that if one chooses not to fly the cheapest way, or chooses to
stay at an expensive hotel, then no reimbursement at all will be
allowed.

I would think that the policy should say something like "only the cost
of low-cost economy airfare will be reimbursed;

That open the doors to 'what _is_ the cheapest fare' ? what degree of
reasonableness should be applied ( the 'cheapest' fare could entail 3
stop and an overnight lay-over...
and cheapest _when_ ?... on a typical flight there are more fare than
there are seat on the plane...)

I think the trick is to get approval _before_ the fact with a
'budgeted cost'... and reimbursement would be 'up-to' and approved
sum.
