The opening fesitivities of Frequent Traveler University (FTU) Seattle are about to begin: a reception this evening and then a full day of seminars tomorrow and Sunday. I will be be delivering a presentation tomorrow afternoon called “Hacking United Airlines.”
I cringe even saying the word “hacking” because it just sounds illegal, or at the very least unethical. But travel hacking is only about taking advantage of rules and polices to hack down the cost of your trip–there is no shame in doing this.
My talk will be elementary to many used to flying on United, but I will go through, as best as this MillionMiler flyer who has been exceedingly loyal to United for the last decade can, the whole United experience–from planning and booking to the travel itself and all the little tricks to save money, earn points, and maximize comfort.
I hope to meet some of you this weekend and hope to help those who attend my session better understand all aspects of United Airlines.
I’ve got thoughts on United’s dismal financial numbers released today, but I will hold those till next week.
