If you're planning to attend the Chicago Seminars (http://milepoint.com/forums/threads/chicago-seminar-october-29-and-30-2011.3773/) later this month, I hope you're also planning to attend the moderated breakouts on Sunday. toomanybooks and I will be leading a moderated discussion of frequent flyer programs of "US Airways, Southwest and others" (with the others most likely being JetBlue, Virgin America and Frontier although we might have a VS or AC trick or two to share--- probably won't get into the further-away carriers like BMI or SQ, etc). If you are planning to attend, please let me know what US-specific content you'd like to see/hear; I can't promise to cover it but would rather give something that interests folks rather than putting you all to sleep. I can always do a quick-and-cheap guide to the first 12-16 Grand Slam hits as there will still be 2 weeks left in the promo but given how extensive the threads on our two favorite boards are, and how much blog coverage there's been, that might be a case of "been there, done that." You can leave your suggestions in this thread or PM them to me and I'll start doing my homework!
