    Ever wondered that goes into airplane seat design? There will be some designers willing to discuss seat design on Monday January 21 at 7pm in the beautiful Edgewater room at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza (has a wonderful view of the river & Chicago)

    Some light hors d'oeuvres will be served and there might even be a giveaway or two.

    Please post your interest in attending, thanks.

    Just FYI, for anyone like skyvan who may be flying into Chicago, this meetup is a 5 block walk from the Clark/Lake L stop (easy for folks coming from ORD to get to (taking Blue Line)) & a 2 block walk from the Merchandise Mart L stop (Brown or Purple line).

    For those coming from the burbs using Metra, this meetup is a 6 block walk from Olgilvie Station or 10 block walk from Union.

    Of course one may want to take a cab if it is the temperature that it should be, at this time of year.:)

    And last but not least, if one is driving and wants to save some $, take a look at www.spothero.com to get some savings on your parking.

    Also, just saw that the Shop Chicago show is going on down the street. It goes to 6pm on Monday so I might check it out before heading to the Meetup.

    sorry to hear, but fully understand the low point balance thing w/upcoming trips.

    Funny how what I used to consider a norm low point balance to be is now my bar for a high point balance norm & time to burn.:)

    I had hundreds of thousands of SkyMiles and booked a bunch of trips before 1/1 afraid they'd screw me over with revenue based system. I'm also not the best at earning miles. Enjoy the meetup though, really seems like it's awesome, hopefully something like this happens in LA at some point, and as always, thanks for posting this.
