UPDATE: This event has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
After a long hiatus, Frequent Traveler University (FTU) returns with an in-person event in Dallas next month. I’ll be speaking throughout the weekend and look forward to meeting many readers.
FTU Dallas 2021 – A Primer On Miles + Points
While Live and Let’s Fly has focused lately on my personal travels and more tabloid-type stories that make news headlines, FTU Dallas is all about the “meat” of points, miles, and travel in general. I’ll be speaking on a number of topics including:
- Miles + Points In 2021 – Is It Still Worthwhile?
- Adventure Travel – 139 Countries and Counting
- United Airlines vs. American Airlines: Which One Is Better For You?
I’ll also be speaking on stage at the Travel & Adventure Show on miles + points and American vs. United, but aimed more at beginners.
The T&A show will at the Dallas Market Hall near Dallas Love Airport while FTU will be at the adjacent Hilton Garden Inn.
