OK. Finally a break to update my blog. Half-way thru Week Two and things are getting crazy! I can barely manage the time to book more flights on Air Canada's website. The press interviews and actual flying are taking too much time. Thank goodness I get to go to work tommorow...some much needed solitude in the cockpit.
To date I have now flown 72 flights equalling over 75,000 actual miles, netting some 206,000+ miles in my account, including bonuses, as of October 11th. A highlight for me came when I picked my first threshold bonus for 150,000 Annual Status miles (already had 100K before I started this venture). Yes, it was exciting, and yes ...I am a virgin, it was my first time. Choices I had were;
a) Upgrades and Lounge Passes - uh...no thanks, don't need any lounge passes. I'm seeing so much of the lounge at YVR that yesterday I stopped myself right before I said to one of the friendly lounge staff, "OK honey, see you in an hour!"
b) A $200 voucher to a bath products store - again, no. It's already a challenge to navigate the bathroom which is littered with assorted creams, balms, and lotions. Why would I do that to myself?
c) 35,000 bonus miles - oh ya baby! Isn't that the whole point of this?
More soon, sorry for the delay,
