HI all- I am a new consultant that just took a gig that will require me to be travelling from Boston to Chicago for the next 9 months or so staying Mon-Thu. The best airlines for travel are JetBlue and American and the closest hotels to my office are Marriott and Holiday Inn. Could you please educate me on how i should position the future travel and stays that I will be doing to get status as quickly as possible? The first week was tough and status would mitigate some of the problems. Thanks everyone in advance.
