1. I think bloggers typically way undervalue WoH globalist status, and overvalue airline statuses. Somehow, they will maximize a mileage award for some partner F class and be like, 'wow' about that...

I get the idea of work from hyatt -- my rural internet access at home is slow and unreliable, my fun and dining options locally are limited, and I feel I have no down time between work, feeding the...

I don't know how any of these routes are truly profitable, but fingers crossed. Our state based budgets are impacted, but most university travel is paid by external grants, which are not impacted. We...

Yeah, I have to admit that dropping college towns now for a bit makes plenty of sense, I just hope to the spaghetti monster that AA fully intends this to be temporary.

The only things that are limited pie in this are mostly the free upgrades and competing for space for SWUs, right?

I have no idea how people do that!

More likely, I will just become 100% free agent when I do travel, and will probably travel 50% less by air altogether. 100% of both my work and personal travel...

Yes, I believe there are hiking opportunities right in the vicinity, but I didn't have a long enough stay to vet that out.
