So, I had a great time at the New Jersey FTU program this weekend. Got to learn a lot not only from the luminaries in the field but also from the extremely knowledgeable people I ate and traveled with. At dinner tonight with my family (my wife and I have two daughters, N— who is 12 and E— who is 10), the conversation went something like this: N—: What information did you learn at your meeting? Larry: Well, I got some good information about a credit card from Alaska Airlines which lets you get two tickets for the price of one, and both tickets get to earn miles. N—: Miles? Which alliance is Alaska in? Larry: Alliance? How do you know about alliances? E—: Which alliance is Swiss in? I like their screens! So, is now the time to start worrying? Or is it too late?
