A Hundred Dollar Hamburger?

What does a "Hundred Dollar Hamburger" refer to? I just got an accolade from HubPages that my questions have resulted in 100 answers. And there was a fun fact about it that a hundred dollar hamburger is an aviation slang for a pilot needing an excuse to fly. What is the meaning of it and why they call it so? Any knowledge please?

    Thanks for the answer and clarification. So, to sum up, the slang is used to refer to somebody like that pilot who flies from one airport to another with some pretentious job of having a hamburger, but main purpose being to enjoy the flight.
