    I wasn't able to attend the Chicago seminars last weekend. Are there any posted presentations, besides the Points Guy's, available online?

    Thanks

    I went and I thought that the BEST summary was done by the RAPID TRAVEL CHAI:
    http://www.rapidtravelchai.com/2011/10/be-loyal-to-yourself-chicago-seminars.html

    Also Milliion mile secrets (the nicest guy you will EVER meet) did a layout of the presenters: http://millionmilesecrets.com/2011/11/01/chicago-do-review/#more-6144

    Gary at View From the Wing posted the summary of his presentation on award booking. I asked beaubo for a copy of his presentation on "the ponzi scheme" of miles/points, but he referred me to ingy for getting a copy.

    Does anybody know when to watch what was filmed at the Chicago DO? I thought Rick said it would air tonight (Sunday before Thanksgiving). What time? What channel?

    The team was from ABC's Nightline. I don't know anything about air dates and won't be able to watch live from my hotel in USM. Hopefully someone'll stick it on YouTube... ;)

    I would be shocked if Rick didn't give a heads-up reminder before it was going to air, but he did say it was around Thanksgiving......though I am sure things like that are subject to change. Can't wait to see it though.

    Rick posted this on FrugalTravelguy.com today...

    " It appears the ABC Nightline piece done at the Chicago Seminars will run this Wednesday night. Tune in to see some successes of your fellow travel hackers."

    I viewed the excellent John Donvan reported story titled "Flying First Class for Free", which aired November 22, 2011 on the ABC Television Network Nightline program. It was their lead story and featured Rick Ingersoll (Ingy), the author of Frugal Travel Guy. Rick and other frequent flyers look great on HD video. To view the video with limited commercial interruption, click here. Happy trails and Happy Thanksgiving in America to you.

    Thanks Ceieoc, I missed it last night because I thought it would air tonight. I'm actually in a lot of shots. The link worked great.

    Hopefully, all gate agents will now offer you complimentary upgrades and lounge access for our world famous frequent flyer celebrities, like you and others appearing in this ABC television network newscast. Let us know if the flight attendants or pilots request your autograph.

    The video is not available to viewers outside of US... :(

    I've been drooling over the lucrative credit card offers that our friends in the States get, and now, I am left salivating over a video titled "Flying First Class For Free"... :p

    I guess I'll have to go check out YouTube to see if anyone has posted it.

    So I'm pretty sure the one on Tuesday night was it. There was nothing last night on Nightline.

    I got my 150 milliseconds of fame in the audience pans. Any Hollywood directors, please PM.

    But seriously, this was a great conference!
