Although it has been a relatively quiet week, I find myself tired on this beautiful spring Sunday. I’m trying to rest up because travel picks up later this week and then again next week.
I hope to see some of you at the Frequent Traveler University (FTU) in Minneapolis next weekend (June 9-11th). There are still tickets available if you are interested and you can save $20 by using the promo code LIVEFLYMSP at checkout.
Then I’m going to London. I’ll have a separate post on that, but I think the answer to London’s recent spate of terrorism is to visit London. When we refuse to react in fear, we deny terrorists one of their primary objectives.
I wrote a lot on United over the last few days and was frankly surprised at the firestorm my post on a “FA Revolt” created. United announced a new premium transcontinental service concept and added Boston – San Francisco to the mix. Complimentary hot meals will now be served in economy class. I wrote about the concern some FAs that the additional service without additional staffing will be burdensome and make passengers in “regular” economy class angry.
Have a great evening and week ahead.

Biman Bangladesh Airlines actually impressed me. My trip report is coming soon, but read about my first impressions here (with photos).
