Greetings from Lisbon! It’s raining here, but still 65F!
I got a kick out of hearing myself on NPR today, but was surprised that only 20 seconds of my 20 minute interview was included. Standard practice I suppose.
What did you did not hear:
- Discussing the value of airline loyalty, even if just for 25,000 miles/year (what it really means to be elite)
- Promotions such as DEQM
- How valuable MRers are to airlines
- How much I spend on travel
- More anecdotes from my personal travels
Although I am a bit ticked off NPR did not cut the "um" from my first statement, I appreciate Jeremy taking the time to meet me at JFK for the interview and hope that the piece will inspire a few listeners to take the leap and plunge into the world of frequent flyer obsession–and subscribe to our upgrd.com podcasts on iTunes!
