Dear OP, no. Stop whining.
I honestly don't give two shits about the quest text, sad as it may seem. I hit accept and get on with my business. I suggest an heirloom tome for flying, sort of like the thing you had in (early?) wotlk, iirc. If you've seen it once, then, well, you've seen it and shoudn't need to go through it again and again. It's like... I dunno, Lord of the Rings (the films), they're epic when you see them for the first time, but when it's dialogue and in particular anything involving Frodo crying like the whiny pussy he is, you just want to fast forward that shit.
I think they should only allow flying at level caps of 60 70 80 85 and 90 in between ground only.
won't happen, even the new zone coming in 5.2 won't have flying in it. If anything they are going to become more strict on flying rather than more lenient. Get over it!
Sometimes there are really good ideas that get shot down though and then later people stumble across them and admit their blindness, aka my LFR thread that I put on the official forums a few months before the LFR we ended up getting was announced. All the elitsts shot it down and accused me of wanting welfare gear (even though I said very clearly I didn't think it should even drop any gear...see, most people don't even bother to read your post before they post their disapproval, another reason to take it with a grain of salt) and said that if such a thing ever happened they'd quit the game for good. I went back into the thread a couple months into Dragon Soul and necroed it showing them out for the liars they are, linking their armories with DS LFR gear and all. It was pretty funny.
So...yeah, don't worry about it
Back in my day we didn't have these fancy flying contraptions! Not only that we had to walk 15 miles up hill both ways to and from the quest givers!
But in all seriousness, yes they should add tomes for alts. If they want it to be like that the first play through, sure, w/e, lets do that. But once everyone has a 90 main that is flying around already, it is pointless to be the only toon in the zone on a ground mount.
The arguments against it are amusing as well. "stop whining" "flying is boring" "something about free levels that has no relation".
a) No goal once end-game, aka really casual players or just dont care about things on 90
b) As you said, just likes the old slow lvling grind. I personally would love a future MMO with very little or no lvling. Wow exspansions could easly be done without a new level cap to.
Edit: PS I lvl'd characters back in classic wow, 3-4 of them to be excact if you dont count my druid, and only one of them made it to level 60. My hunter who only made it to level 40 had over 10 days played. Dont come and say I haven't been enjoying the slow grinding Now days its just not fun anymore, atleast for maybe old time players who wanna have a fresh exsperience at level max.

One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?
Lol, If u want a easy game try Habbo
he also said "you just want the rewards with less time spent doing it to which I say, hell why don't you just ask for all the freebies you can get, amIright?", which he meant since you want things quicker (aka. easier too) WHY NOT ASK for all freebies you can get. Since you can't read it the first time.
STOP ACTING like 12k is soooo hard to come by over the course of leveling, I have leveled multiple toons and getting gold for flying was NEVER a problem.
btw where the hell did the "show me" "I'm showing" crap come from? You need to chill in you dumb hatred at DeadManWalking cause your acting like a little child. go ahead and rage at me since im just passing through and probably wont be by to see it anyway.
While flying mounts would be nice, personally I think the worst part about levelling alts in pandaria is the near total lack of variability each time.
I've done 3 characters so far, planning on another 3-4 and I KNOW I'm going to be doing Jade Forest all 3-4 times.
Sure I can kinda mix it up afterwards, but I don't know whether it was me sucking on my paladin first time around, but townlong and dread wastes (did all of Jade, Valley and Krasarang, skipped Kun-lai) were by far and away the most awfully painful levelling experiences I've had in wow that I can remember.
I'm sure everyone has had their go-to favourite levelling paths through each of the expansions, which over time have dropped entire zones with the introduction of heirlooms, guild perks and xp nerfs/gains specifically in Wrath and TBC, but MoP and to a slightly lesser extent Cata have few to no options to vary your path, and as of yet haven't been hit with the nerf hammer xp wise giving you almost no option for variability.
Also, the whole flying mount (since that kinda ties in with the point im going for) skipping content has never held much weight with me, you aren't skipping content, you are still doing the quests, you are just avoiding the crap being the quest hub and your quest zone, stuff that 9 times out of 10 people just mount through on a ground mount anyway and pray they don't get dismounted, flying takes some of the risk out of it sure. I feel that if you are new to the game this expansion, then you probably won't miss the lack of flying mounts, if you have been around for an expansion or more, this expac is more of the same, collect quest, kill stuff, complete quest move on, you probably weren't paying attention anyway and as such you are basically "skipping" the content anyway, far more so than flying over non-quest mobs or avoiding gankers is skipping content.
I don't want to fly, therefore, no one should be able to fly.
- 80% of the people who post on these kinds of topics.
There really isn't a forced leveling path. Its of course not as loose as the Wrath model, But its not as rigid as you guys are implying. OUt of my 3 I have done:
1) Jade - Valley - Townlong - Dread
2) Jade - Valley - Summit - Dread
3) Jade - Valley - Dungeons - Dread
Jade is the only one forced on you. I did Valley and Dread all three times for rep purposed.

I liked being on the ground in Northrend until 77, it was a great levelling experience.
Not so much in MoP, where the really badly written, infantile quests with no nuance or depth really annoyed me. Fighting bunnies? Scatological jokes all over the place with Hozen? really really bad zone stories and cliched chinese stereotypes.....no thanks, just make it end.
No game will ever kill wow. Though Blizard themselves are making a pretty damm good attempt lately.
THE FIRST RULE OF BRAWLERS GUILD IS YOU DO NOT GET INVITED TO BRAWLERS GUILD.
You are lucky flying is in the game at all, given that many people, including some Blizzard employees, feel they hurt the game. Quit griping.
They need to sell the heirloom tome of flying for level 90s to buy
It has nothing to do with the cost being 12 000. It could be 1g or it could be 100 000g. The fact remains that flying is not a freebie. Blizzard's original motive for disallowing flying mounts was because they wanted us to "experience" pandaria. Done. I've experienced it enough. Now that I'm tired of "experiencing it", I want access my flying mount to level my alts faster, like I'm doing across the BC, WOTLK and Cata leveling field. There's nothing left for me to "experience" in pandaria. I'm not asking for them to reduce leveling XP or give me free level 90s, I'm asking for access for something I've already worked for to be used on my alts.
Continuing to tell me that I'm asking for freebies will just continue to make you look like a total idiot, whether you're posting on your main or your alt, which you use to support your main, which is also idiotic, because you sound exactly the same.
