For most people a flying mount is one of those things they can't wait to get. It offers the freedom of the skies, and so they rush to get one as soon as they can.
I never bothered.
I love flight form. It's instant. It's fun being a bird. It just seemed silly if I could be a bird, to sit on one.
But today I received my first flying mount. It's the Red Proto-drake you get for beating the timer in Culling of Stratholme.
This is one of the results of the new dungeon finder tool. Because I've been in so many heroics, all the things I never bothered with seem to be falling into my lap.
I don't really plan to use this much, if at all, but it's kind of fun to have :)
