1. My mom works for Continental, who recently merged with United. Until I was 18, I could fly for free domestically. I used it, but not as much as I should have. I had my first daughter at 17, so I didn't really get to experience it. With Continental, she gets I think 10 buddy passes a year, so I've used a lot of those over the years, but she holds on to them pretty tight so I don't get very many. On top of all that, I've been tied down raising kids for the last 16 years and wouldn't have really had the opportunity to travel very much. This morning, my mom called me and told me that with the merger with United, they get the same benefits that United employees get. With United, they get two "companion passes" which is the exact same benefits that my mom gets, fly anywhere in the world for free. She offered one to me and I almost fell off my chair. I divorced last year and have my kids 50% of the time. I can literally get on a plane Friday night after work, go anywhere in the world, and be back Monday in time for work.

    What Would OT Do?

  10. I would start making a list of destinations based on weather and events occurring at the destinations, then I would go through the list of desired destinations and start clearing my calendar on Fridays and Mondays. Sounds like a very nice perk. Much cheaper than having your own jet.

    Paris is DEFINITELY on the list. Trips across the pond will obviously be more than a weekend. I was more talking trips here in the states or Mexico over a weekend. One thing that I know I will do for sure this summer is hit every MLB field for a game at least once.

    I just went on a cruise and met people from all over the world. My favorite girl that I met is from Quebec and she is definitely on the list. Her contract on the ship is over at the end of May so I'm guessing my first trip north will be sometime in June.

  14. You'd seriously travel overseas for just the weekend? Take some vacation time or call in sick if you're gonna do that. You're gonna spend at least a third of your time traveling and then tack on the exhaustion factor on top of that.

    Amsterdam will be my first stop overseas. That's the first place I thought of. I'm hoping maybe sometime in March. I'm single enough and most definitely enjoy smoking the finest.

  21. Flying over seas from Colorado for less than 2 weeks is a bit ridiculous imo, 10 days minimum to make it worth it.

    If I had a free flight to anywhere in the world I would go to Papua New Guinea. #1 country I want to visit and super expensive flight so easy decision.

  25. I wouldn't go overseas in just a weekend, but I do have a full-time job. I went on a cruise a few weeks ago to the Mexican Riviera and used up a week of my vacation. I have more obv, but I have to be smart with it to get the most out of this benefit. There are going to be some times in the next year that I will have to spend more time on a plane than I will at my destination and I'm ok with that.
