Work brought me to Washington DC this week and as I fly home today, I do so passing high above the flyover states. Throughout, I manage to stay productive – emailing and instant chatting with my coworkers courtesy of technical wizardry that is in-flight WiFi.
By most accounts just another workday, albeit this one high above the clouds.
Yesterday I spent all day flying from San Francisco to Washington DC for a quick work trip. It was a long day of travel, but at least I have sufficient airline status that I can frequent the American Airlines lounges along the way and use inflight wifi for free. Combined, these little perks allow for a mostly productive day while cruising at 30,000 feet.
I also have “elite” status with Hilton and Hyatt hotels – a sign that I spend too much time away from my own bed. The hotels love to market certain perks associated with status … one being upgraded rooms. Well today I awoke in a Hyatt Regency hotel – in an upgraded room no less, to this million dollar view of a mall parking lot.
