I am posting here to try to keep this discussion a secret from Kevin Pinto, as I want to honor him at the Thank-You Luncheon on March 14, 2011. All quotes in this milepost are from FlyerTalk and not from milepoint.com: I am posting the following in this thread for a reason... ...the Thank-You Luncheon date is now set for Monday, March 14. Richard Anderson will be there, as well as greater than 100 Delta Air Lines employees are expected to attend as well. This luncheon is not open to the public due to logistics and funds. Please accept my apologies on this; I hope you understand. Based on what I read in this thread on FlyerTalk, for example, FlyerTalk members expressed a desire to honor Kevin Pinto and donate funds to do so. I want to do exactly that as well, but how should we honor him at the Thank-You Luncheon? I do not want to hand to him another framed paper award to hang on his wall. Perhaps it should be something he uses every day, or something he will truly enjoy — or both. I am posting in this thread because I am taking the chance that he will not have a chance to read it, as I am attempting to keep it as a surprise. Please help spread the word and post your ideas and thoughts in this thread. If there is enough support behind this initiative, I will get the logistics worked out so that those who are interested can donate funds towards his token of appreciation expressing our gratitude to Kevin Pinto, also known as: Thank you in advance for your assistance.
